Which SOLIDWORKS Inspection package is right for you?
Why choose SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional?
Reduce the time needed to create inspection documentation, helping to eliminate input errors, improve quality, and reduce time to market.
SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional extends SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard capabilities and lets you manually or semi-automatically enter measured values directly into an inspection project. With SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional, you can work directly with 2D/3D CAD data and streamlined workflows.
SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional Features
Leverage the SOLIDWORKS add-in or the dedicated standalone application to create detailed inspection reports regardless of the workflow.
Extract characteristic information from 2D PDF (included encrypted documents) and TIFF Files.
Create inspection projects directly from native DXF/DWG files
Quickly balloon and created inspection reports from SOLIDWORKS Drawings.
When working with a PDF file or TIFF image, SOLIDWORKS Inspection can leverage 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.
Automatically extract and balloon inspection dimensions from 2D and 3D CAD files, and specific PDF documents.
Create and manage the Bill of Characteristics (BOCs), change the ordering, edit the numbering or group/ungroup characteristics. Define tolerance tables to standardize inspection reports and requirements.
Customize the inspection bubble shapes, color, and size. Define presets and apply styles based on parameters such as criticity or inspection method. Adjust balloon's placement.
Compare drawings, 2D or 3D CAD files’ revisions to quickly identify changes and update quality project.
Effectively plan quality control by defining Acceptance Quality Limit (AQL) and calculating sample size, accept, and reject criteria.
Export inspection data to quality systems and databases using CSV or XML output formats. Publish directly to Net-Inspect.
SOLIDWORKS Inspection integrates with SOLIDWORKS PDM and enables quality managers to manage project information, control design revisions, deliverables, etc.
Export finished ballooned drawings as PDFs or 3D PDFs (when working with 3D CAD files). Export inspection reports to Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets using standard templates such as AS9102 or Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) forms or customized Excel templates.
Leverage SOLIDWORKS Parts and Assemblies with Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) to streamline the creation of inspection reports.
Open and extract information from other 2D/3D CAD files to create your inspection reports.
Enter measured values for each characteristic directly into an inspection project either manually or by using a digital caliper. Import results from Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM).
Highlight dimensions in green, red, or yellow to easily identify which dimensions are In Tolerance, Out of Tolerance, or Marginally within Tolerance based on the values entered or imported CMM results.
