Automate Your Inspection Documentation

The SOLIDWORKS® Inspection add-in automates the ballooning of engineering drawings and 3D files with Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI). Minimizing the time needed to record inspection measurements, SOLIDWORKS Inspection streamlines the creation of industry-standard inspection reports.

What is SOLIDWORKS Inspection?

SOLIDWORKS Inspection automates the painstaking and often tedious design inspection process. The software enables you to automatically capture inspection dimensions already contained in the models and drawings that are critical to the design’s production. Generate characteristic reports, drawings with ballooned callouts, and workflows quickly and reliably—all delivered in an easy to understand format.


SOLIDWORKS Inspection streamlines your inspection processes by automating the creation of balloons on engineering drawings, and the creation of inspection data sheets and reports. With SOLIDWORKS Inspection, companies have reduced the time to create First Article Inspection packages by up to 90 percent. Other benefits include:


  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to help virtually eliminate manual input and reduce errors.
  • Creation of inspection documents regardless of existing CAD System
  • Improve time to market through powerful, user-customizable report formats by creating industry-standard inspection reports and ballooned drawings in just a few clicks.
  • Avoid errors and quickly identify changes using SOLIDWORKS Inspection advanced drawing comparison tool

Which SOLIDWORKS Inspection package is right for you?


SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard is a First Article and in-process inspection solution that streamlines the creation of inspection documentation. With a standalone application and an embedded SOLIDWORKS add-in, SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard enables you to leverage legacy data regardless of the file type.

 SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional extends SOLIDWORKS Inspection Standard capabilities and lets you manually or semi-automatically enter measured values directly into an inspection project. With SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional, you can work directly with 2D/3D CAD data and streamlined workflows.
