Do you ever need to create Inspection Reports from customer drawings or directly from SOLIDWORKS?
Creating Inspection Reports

Do you create inspection reports and associated ballooned drawings? Do you spend hours manually adding rows of characteristics to a spreadsheet and highlighting or numbering a print of a drawing?

If so, then you need to take a look at SOLIDWORKS Inspection.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection is a First Article Inspection (FAI) and in-process inspection software that greatly simplifies and automates the creation process of ballooned inspection drawings and inspection reports (AS9102, PPAP, etc.)

 

Above is an example of an automatically created Inspection Report of characteristics.

 

Above is an example of an automatically created ballooned PDF to compliment the report.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection consists of a stand-alone application and a SOLIDWORKS add-in that enables users to leverage their legacy data regardless of whether they have SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs or TIFFs. SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional extends SOLIDWORKS Inspection capabilities by providing multiple ways to enter measured values directly into an inspection project. Each characteristic’s value can be entered by manually typing them in, using a digital caliper, or importing CMM results.

Above shows an example of reading measured values into SOLIDWORKS Inspection. You can clearly visualize if the value is In, Out or within a Marginal tolerance.

 

SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps designers and quality inspectors virtually eliminate errors, improve time-to-market, and ensure parts are within specifications for improved quality and optimized fit and function.
