Automate Your Inspection Documentation with SOLIDWORKS Inspection

SOLIDWORKS Inspection is a First Article Inspection (FAI) and in-process inspection software that greatly simplifies and automates the creation process of ballooned inspection drawings and inspection reports (AS9102, PPAP, etc.). The software consists of a stand-alone application and a SOLIDWORKS add-in that enables users to leverage their legacy data regardless of whether they are SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs or TIFFs. SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional extends the base capabilities by giving you multiple ways to enter measured values directly into an inspection project. Each characteristic’s value can be entered by manually typing them in, using a digital caliper or importing CMM results.

The automotive, aerospace, defense, oil & gas, and medical device industries have strict safety regulations and requirements. Most companies working in these industries must provide industry-standard reports including inspection documents such as AS91002 or PPAP forms. Many SOLIDWORKS users are creating First Article Inspections (FAI), Inspection Report, or Ballooned Drawings, but only a handful are leveraging a software solution to do so.
