3D Software



For companies that create inspection documents, SOLIDWORKS Inspection automates the ballooning of engineering drawings and 3D files with Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI), minimizes the time needed to record inspection measurements, and streamlines the creation of industry-standard inspection reports by leveraging existing 2D and 3D CAD data.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional
File Management
Manage and control all your product development data. With SOLIDWORKS PDM, you can create and maintain a single data location and vault that can be accessed by users to store and retrieve files. SOLIDWORKS PDM manages all file references and automatically updates them whenever you move a file to a different folder or rename it, eliminating broken references or the time required to locate and fix lost references manually.
Create Inspection Reports
Use the standalone application or the SOLIDWORKS add-in to quickly balloon and create inspection reports from 2D and 3D CAD files, PDFs, and TIFFs.
Optical Character Recognition
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.
PDF Drawing Comparison And 2D/3D Revision Management
Compare drawings, 2D or 3D CAD files’ revisions to quickly identify changes and update your quality project.
Quality Sampling Plans
Plan effectively your quality control by defining Acceptance Quality Limit (AQL) and calculating sample size, accept, and reject criteria.
Export Options
Export finished ballooned drawings as PDFs, 3D PDFs or eDrawings® 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. Export inspection data directly to quality systems and databases using CSV or XML output formats. Export color-coded ballooned drawings and inspection reports.
Automatic Ballooning
Automatically extract and balloon inspection dimensions from 2D and 3D CAD files, and specific PDF documents.
Customize Inspection Reports
Manage your Bill of Characteristics (BOCs), change the ordering, edit the numbering or group/ungroup characteristics. Customize the inspection bubble shapes and color, define presets or tolerance tables to standardize your inspection reports and requirements.
Enter And Import Measurements
Enter measured values for each characteristic directly into a project either manually or by using a digital caliper. Import Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) results.
Highlight Critical Dimensions
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.
