I'm evaluating a trial version of the SolidWorks Inspection 2016 Add-In.  Regardless of what I set the angular dimension tolerance to, the tolerance that comes up once the drawing has been bubbled is +/- 12.7.  An illustrative example is shown below.

OK I have not found anything about this:   Can I make two different Inspection sheets based off one drawing?   I want to do First Article Inspection and then a Final Inspection sheets from the same drawing.  The FAI will inspect more than the Final.  So on the FAI I might have 10 dimensions to measure; and on the final inspection I will only… (Show more)

Hello all,   I am using the Inspection add-in with SolidWorks 2016, exporting my dimensional data to excel. When establishing the measure sheet template, I am using the "Template Editor" located under the Inspection tab on the ribbon. When I choose to export my 'specification' (nominal dimension) with non-GDT font, I have full control over font… (Show more)
