Export your inspection project in various formats and ensure the manufactured part is properly inspected for every detail of the model: Create a 2D PDF with balloons tied to the characteristics. Export a 3D PDF or eDrawings file to showcase the part in 3D with its associated PMI ballooned. Generate an Excel inspection report.

SOLIDWORKS is turning the spotlight on manufacturing. This year’s event will feature, for the first time, a 40 x 70 ft. “Shop Floor” booth, recreating a typical manufacturing environment for the production and inspection of an automotive gear shift arm. Parts will be manufactured and inspected from part designs produced in SOLIDWORKS 2018 complete with embedded Model Based Definition (MBD).

SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018 enables users to leverage their existing 2D and 3D CAD files to streamline their quality control and documentation processes even more. Additionally, the support of SOLIDWORKS parts and assemblies also enables companies to expand their drawing-less manufacturing strategy all the way to the quality department. If your SOLIDWORKS parts or assemblies contain 3D annotations or Product and Manufacturing Information (PMIs), then you can create a new inspection project and

SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018 sees a lot of great enhancements and a big part of the new features is being able to support many more file formats! Let’s first start off with the add-in, the add-in works great when it comes to working with our SOLIDWORKS drawings, it balloons everything quickly and efficiently but what happens if we are working with a 3D part or assembly that have DimXpert annotations attached? That is no problem for SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018 which now can handle ballooning 3D
