Creates and edits user-definable text placed by the designer on an object in the model. The notes provide special instructions related to the object for the fabricator and are available in downstream tasks. For example, the notes appear in two-dimensional drawings and within design review sessions.
Only one note of a given kind from a given object can be shown on a drawing. For example, if there are two fabrication notes on a piping part, then only one of the notes shows on the drawing. It is important to know about and to consider this situation when defining notes on an object in the modeling phase. For example, you can display one Fabrication note and one Installation note by defining two separate labels for the two kinds of notes.
