SOLIDWORKS® Inspection is a First Article Inspection (FAI) and in-process inspection software that streamlines and automates the creation of ballooned inspection drawings and inspection reports (AS9102, PPAP, etc.).
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 is a simple and intuitive application that can reduce the time needed to create inspection documentation by up to 90 percent, and helps to virtually eliminate input errors, thus improving quality and reducing time-to-market.
SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional extends capabilities by giving users multiple ways to enter measured values directly into the project to help simplify part inspection. Each characteristic value can be entered manually, by using a digital calliper, or by importing coordinate measuring machine (CMM) results.
Backed by the unrivalled support of Australia and New Zealand’s largest team of Certified SOLIDWORKS engineers, SOLIDWORKS Inspection features include:
> 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? 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
> Handle revisions with ease: avoid errors and quickly identify changes using SOLIDWORKS Inspection advanced drawing comparison tool
> Improve Time to Market: powerful, user-customisable 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
