First Article Inspection (FAI) Reports Created in Minutes with SOLIDWORKS Inspection

The inspection process is an often overlooked, but vital step in the manufacturing process. It is essential and if something goes wrong, the consequences can be severe. But if you are creating inspection reports manually, it can be a tedious and time-consuming task.

Whether you are currently inspecting SOLIDWORKS drawings or are being provided drawings from your customers in other formats, SOLIDWORKS Inspection will help reduce the time it takes you to generate First Article Inspection reports and help eliminate human error. The software pulls data directly from SOLIDWORKS and CATIA drawings, but it can also pull data from semantic PDFs and other drawing formats without translation. SOLIDWORKS Inspection is also able to scan older drawings to extract dimensions, notes, and properties using the latest OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology.

Reduce manual input and increase the speed and accuracy of your inspection reports.

HOW CAN HAWK RIDGE SYSTEMS HELP?

The Hawk Ridge Team wants to help you succeed. Sometimes, when it comes to inspection reports, you are forced to work with older PDF drawings. These can be hard to read because they must be scanned or were made with non-standard industry fonts. We have assisted many companies like yours with developing custom OCR dictionaries to successfully read in these drawings and develop their inspection documentation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need SOLIDWORKS to use SOLIDWORKS Inspection?
No, but it does work directly with SOLIDWORKS drawings. Inspection is unique in that it installs as both an add-in for SOLIDWORKS and a standalone program. You get both with your Inspection purchase. The add-in inspects directly to your SOLIDWORKS drawings, and the standalone can inspect multiple drawing types such as PDF, DWG, DXF, and even CATIA drawings.
Can SOLIDWORKS Inspection import coordinate measuring machine (CMM) results? If so, what is it compatible with?
Yes. Once your First Article Inspection is ready, the standalone version of Inspection by default will import most CMM export variations. If you have any doubt, let us know and we will verify it works, or create a template so it will work before purchase.
Can Inspection licenses be networked like SOLIDWORKS?
Yes, and it runs on the same network license manager so you can have multiple people using the same license, one at a time.
What file types does SOLIDWORKS Inspection export?
Once Inspection is done gathering all bill of characteristics, CMM data, form 1, 2, and 3 info, along with any notes, tables, and page properties, it then exports as an editable Excel document and a PDF ballooned drawing. Since the FAI is an Excel document, data can be added, extracted, and the template format can be easily customized.
Can I use Inspection to program my CMM?
No. Inspection imports the results from the CMM, it does not program it.
Which inspection standards are supported?
Inspection is fully AS9102 and PPAP compliant.
Can drawings be automatically ballooned?
Yes, they can. The add-in for SOLIDWORKS will auto-balloon the entire drawing and the standalone has what is called SmartExtract, which works with most semantic drawing formats. SmartExtract can analyze groups of dimensions and extract metadata from the drawing. This makes inspection reports fast and resistant to error.
