Simplify document creation to help streamline
part inspection and improve quality   

SOLIDWORKS Inspection is easy-to-use, integrated with SOLIDWORKS CAD, and available as a standalone application to work with other CAD systems. Companies can easily deploy it, train their quality department, and start to optimise their inspection and quality processes. This saves time, lowers costs, and wins more business by eliminating the bottlenecks in quality inspection and increasing throughput in manufacturing.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Inspection?

SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps to streamline the creation of documents with balloon callouts and specifications by leveraging existing 2D legacy data regardless of file type—SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs, or TIFFs—and automating a manual and tedious process. Measured inspection values can be entered directly, either manually or automatically, using a digital measuring instrument (such as a USB caliper). SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps designers and quality inspectors virtually eliminate errors, improve time-to-market, and ensure parts are within specifi cations for improved quality and optimised fit and function.
