SOLIDWORKS Inspection 

SOLIDWORKS Inspection is a First SOLIDWORKS Inspection is a First Article Inspection (FAI) and in-process inspection software that streamlines and automates the creation of ballooned inspection drawings and inspection reports (AS9102, PPAP, etc.). 

SOLIDWORKS Inspection consists of a stand-alone application and a SOLIDWORKS add-in that enables users to leverage their legacy data regardless of whether they have SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs, or TIFFs. 

SOLIDWORKS Inspection is a simple and intuitive application that can reduce the time needed to create inspection documentation by up to 90 percent, and helps to virtually eliminate input errors, thus improving quality and reducing time-to-market. 

SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional extends capabilities by giving users multiple ways to enter measured values directly into the project to help simplify part inspection. Each characteristic value can be entered manually, by using a digital caliper, or by importing coordinate measuring machine (CMM) results.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard

SolidWorks Inspection Standard is a First Article and in-process inspection solution that streamlines the creation of inspection documentation. A standalone application and an embedded SOLIDWORKS add-in, SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard enables you to leverage legacy data regardless of the file type.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional

 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.
