Produce quality inspection documentation by eliminating input errors, reduce time to market and better quality.


Make Your Inspection Documentation More Automated
SOLIDWORKS Inspection is a First Article Inspection (FAI) and in-process inspection solution that make your reporting process simpler and automated. SOLIDWORKS Inspection is user-friendly, integrated with SOLIDWORKS CAD, and available as a standalone application to work with other CAD systems.


Optimize Your Inspection and Quality Processes

Eliminate bottlenecks in quality inspection and increase throughput in manufacturing to win more business.

CAD Agnostic

A universal document inspection, for any CAD system.

  • Create inspection documents regardless of your existing CAD system,
  • Be it standalone SOLIDWORKS Inspection application or the integrated SOLIDWORKS Inspection add-in.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Usage of OCR for detailed and thorough inspection.

  • For PDF or TIFF drawing, SOLIDWORKS Inspection uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to read and identify the nominal dimension, tolerances, and the type of dimension.
  • Virtually eliminate manual input and reduce errors
  • Works with horizontal, vertical and split dimensions, notes, hole callouts, finish symbols, and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) symbols.

Customizable Inspection Reports

Generating reports is now easier and faster.

  • Easy-to-use just with few clicks, without any complex inputs
  • Generate industry-compliant inspection reports, e.g. AS9102, PPAP, and ISO13485
  • Utilize the advanced template editor to create a report that suits your company's needs.
