Q - question

How to insert the surface symbol (roughness)?

A - answer The symbol for surface roughness and machining parameters is included in the mechanical version of AutoCAD - AutoCADu Mechanical. See the AMSURFSYM command (ribbon Annotations).

To draw the surface symbol in a plain AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT you can use the dynamic block Roughness from the CAD Blocks library. It conforms to the ISO 1302 standard. Insert the block in the standard way, select the type of symbol (visibility state) and double-click the symbol to enter the requested descriptions (attributes).
