Intuitive and easy-to-use, SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps streamline the creation of documents with balloon callouts and specifications by leveraging existing 2D legacy data regardless of file type (SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs, or TIFFs) and automating a manual and tedious process. Measured inspection values can be entered directly, either manually or automatically, using a digital measuring instrument (such as a USB caliper). 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.
Inspection Documents made easy
Intuitive and easy to use, SOLIDWORKS Inspection enables you to create inspection reports and ballooned drawings in just minutes, for time savings of up to 90 percent.
Don’t have SOLIDWORKS CAD? No problem!
You can create your inspection documents regardless of your existing CAD system, using either the standalone SOLIDWORKS Inspection application or the integrated SOLIDWORKS Inspection add-in.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
When working with a PDF or TIFF drawing, SOLIDWORKS Inspection can instruct Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to read and identify the nominal dimension, plus and minus tolerances, and the type of dimension (such as diametric or linear) helping to virtually eliminate manual input and reduce errors. It works with horizontal and vertical dimensions, split dimensions, notes, hole callouts, finish symbols and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) symbols.
Handle revisions with ease
Avoid errors and quickly identify changes using SOLIDWORKS Inspection advanced drawing comparison tool.
Improve Time to Market
Powerful, user-customizable report formats allow you to create industry standard inspection reports (AS9102, PPAP, etc.) and ballooned drawings in just a few clicks, helping to avoid errors and inconsistences.
Inspection Done Faster
Inspect your parts, directly type in measured values, use a digital caliper, or import results from a coordinate measuring machine (CMM).
