I have Solidworks Standalone Inspection. Is there a way to create one inspection report for one drawing, then add/select a new drawing and have a new inspection report created for the next drawing,(starting at number 1 again) so that I have multiple individual FAI (each drawing have its own inspection.) ...

We have project templates and excel templates saved in a network location. Instead of manually navigating to the file each time, is there a way to set a default file location like we can with drawing templates? This is for 2017 SP 3.0 with the SW Inspection add-in.

I have a few questions in regards to adding multipliers to various drawing attributes. I've had some difficulty getting the following to work and would be interested to know if there are solutions: 1) Multipliers on Dimensions and Corresponding GD&T- When I link a GD&T control frame to a dimension that has a multiplier, the multiplier does not apply to the GD&T control frame;

It looks as though SolidWorks Inspection will truncate any leading or trailing whitespace in a note string. I am looking for a way to force Inspection to balloon a note if it doesn't match any of the existing criteria, but without changing it's appearance (while using the auto-balloon feature). A leading or trailing whitespace character could accomplish this with a regex of ^s{1}

I have experienced a bug in the rounding behavior between SolidWorks and Inspection Add-In. When a limit tolerance is applied to three places, with the last digit being a 5 (ex: +.025), and the precision is only displayed to two places, SolidWorks rounds the number UP on the drawing, but rounds DOWN inside Inspection. I attached a photo showing the discrepancy.

We just got inspection Pro 2018 and cannot seem to find any documentation about this topic. We use both CMM's and Video measuring devices.

Since updating to 2018, SW Inspection returns 0 value when tolerance is a +0 or -0. If a value is there, it is handled correctly. Ex 1: 2.000 +.000/-.005 returns values of Upper Limit = 0.000, Lower Limit = 1.995

We evaluated the add-in but so far decided it is not worth it. Here is a list of frustrations that we faced. I'm putting these here in hopes of SW fixing these issues in later versions and we might reconsider:

We are looking to purchase and implement Inspection but one of our problems is that it does not seem to have the ability to use a CTQ callout instead of the inspection balloon. CTQ's are one of those grey/gray area's in the standards but are required by our parent company. Is this something SolidWorks is working on implementing? Also would like the CTQ to setup as a symbol or add on button similar to the inspection balloon.

I have MS Office 365 installed but the SW Inspection installer cannot find MS Excel. How do I point SW Inspection to the Excel application? Our VAR has told us that SolidWorks does not support Office 2016.

I'm using a default template that comes with SW Inspection which it is "Large Logo Template". In that template there's a column called Sub-Type that uses the attribute "@subtype" and the information that the attribute put in the template is what I need, so I'm OK there. Now, I want to know if there's any way I can change the word "Diameter" in the sub-type column.

I think it's amazing to input 3D PMI for Inspection 2018. But our SOLIDWORKS MBD need to creat drawings for Inspection to use.

Does any body know how to add them in the screen not on the excel sheet? You need to use the SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standalone application and turn on "Measurement Input and CMM Data Import" in the options.

Problems with angular dimension tolerances. I'm evaluating a trial version of the SolidWorks Inspection 2016 Add-In. Regardless of what I set the angular dimension tolerance to, the tolerance that comes up once the drawing has been bubbled is +/- 12.7.

I'm evaluating SW Inspection Add-in, but I'm having some trouble: the most annoying problem is that it cannot recognize decimal separator (I set my system with decimal comma "," as separator) in dimensions' values

I have a few users that are trying to use the Solidworks Inspection Add-in in Solidworks. The stand alone version functions fine and we have available licenses. We are running SW2015 SP3 and Inspection 2015 SP3. The inspection add-in inst even an option on the add in list and the icon is grey'd out.
