Streamline the creation of inspection documents by leveraging your existing 2D legacy data, regardless of whether files are SOLIDWORKS, PDFs, or TIFFs. Introduction to SOLIDWORKS Inspection. Import 2D PDFs or 2D/3D CAD Files to start creating your inspection reports. Setup your SOLIDWORKS Inspection project. Navigate through all the documents of your inspection project. Generate a Bill of Characteristics. Extract information from your 2D drawings using the "Optical Character Recognition" or OCR tool. Define default tolerance values to ensure manufactured product faills within specification as drawings often don't have explicit tolerance values associated with them. Duplicate dimensions are often grouped together on a drawing but might need to be inspected separately. Customize your inspection projects balloons to highlight different aspect of your parts or different classifications. Change the order of characteristics and define balloon sequences. Export your inspection project in various formats and ensure the manufactured part is properly inspected for every detail of the model. Enter measurement data directly in the SOLIDWORKS Inspection project and compare them with the part specfications.
