Webcast Part 2
The Inspection Standalone application allows creation of
ballooned drawings and First Article Inspection Reports from third party
applications independent of SOLIDWORKS.
We explore the new compatible file formats, including 3D
solid files from Catia, Pro E, and Inventor. Now it is possible to create 3D
inspection documentation in these formats. We explore the new to 2018
SmartExtract tool, which inserts your balloons at a click of the button.
Exporting these ballooned components to a 3D PDF now enables universal
distribution of inspection documentation that won’t be misinterpreted.
Using a dwg drawing, we use the new SmartExtract file to
quickly and accurately extract all the characteristics, with Inspection
Standalone automatically calculating our upper and lower limits. We explore the
new flexibility in the collation of the characteristics which makes the
Standalone application even more user friendly.
