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.
Streamline your quality Inspection processes
by automating the creation of balloons on engineering drawings, and the creation of inspection data sheets and reports. Sequentially numbered balloons are applied automatically to help you keep track of the dimensions and characteristics to inspect. Accurate bubbled prints and inspection sheets are generated in just minutes. With SOLIDWORKS Inspection, companies have reduced the time to create First Article Inspection packages by up to 90 percent.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
is used to read and identify the nominal dimension, plus and minus tolerances, and the type of dimension, 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. In addition, with the standalone SOLIDWORKS Inspection application, you can create your inspection documents regardless of your existing CAD system.
SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps drastically reduce the time needed to generate inspection reports. In just a few clicks, you can create industry-compliant inspection reports (such as AS9102, PPAP, ISO 13485) or use the powerful template editor to develop a report that matches your company’s needs.
In addition, SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps avoid errors and inconsistencies traditionally associated with manual data input.
You can save time, lower costs, and win more business by eliminating the bottlenecks in quality inspection and increasing throughput in manufacturing.
Help Improve Product Quality and Save Money
Inspection documents can help your company significantly improve its manufacturing processes, reduce scrap, cut time-to-market, and improve product quality and reliability.
Because SOLIDWORKS Inspection is easy to use, integrated with SOLIDWORKS CAD, and available as a stand-alone application to work with your existing CAD system, you can easily deploy it, train your quality department, and start to optimize your inspection and quality processes.
