I think it's amazing to input 3D PMI for Inspection 2018. But our SOLIDWORKS MBD need to creat drawings for Inspection to use. So that I thinks it's superfluous . Why CATIA & ProE files can input, but SOLIDWORKS MBD can't?
Hi John, Thank you for getting back to me. That is not the case because I'm working in the standalone version - and only with .pdf documents. I can't figure out what is triggering this. Sometimes I can start all over with the same pdf and no problems.
Hi everyone, Maybe this is a stupid questions, but does anyone know whether you can fix the positions of the inspection balloons after generating them? Of course I use the coordinate system to initially place them, but there are always some balloons that need to be repositioned manually due to overlap with other lines/dimensions/whatnot. When…(Show moreShow less)
Hi Jeff, Thanks for your message, but unfortunately there's nothing new there for me. As you say, it's not always possible to place the dimensions so no overlap occurs. Ideally, once the dimensions are dragged somewhere they would stay there when something is updated. I'll put in an ER. Marc
I've recently begun using SolidWorks Inspection--both the extension and the standalone program--at work. I've become familiar enough with the program to do what I need to do, but there is one thing that's beginning to get to me: I have to change my balloon appearance every single time I use this program! I have tried changing the balloon…(Show moreShow less)
Hi Noah, SOLIDWORKS Inspection puts all the balloons on a new layer called Balloons in red color. In order to change the color of the balloons you have to change the color of the layer. If you want to set the default color of the balloons you can create a drawing template with a layer named Balloons with desired color. Any new drawing made…
I have issues with Solidworks Inspection standalone 2019 crashing when "validating license". It happens when I start a new project or randomly. When I start a new project, the "validating license" dialog box comes up with 50%, then the program crashes. I can try 2-3 times before it works. Then I can be working on a project, and then the…(Show moreShow less)
I have been attempting to customise our inspection report templates, both for Standalone and Add-in Some of the intended functionality was to: Have the report auto-expand length-wise (rows) as needed - Utilise IXFooterRow Functionality, Should be easy enough Make the Characteristics extracted display their number and whether or not they are…(Show moreShow less)
I am trying to make my inspection reports be able to automatically add extra "results/measurement" Columns as desired. Question applies to both Add-in or standalone For example 1 piece inspected will have 1 column 3 pieces inspected would automatically add 2 more columns in the report to bring it to a total of 3 so each characteristic can…(Show moreShow less)
Ok, So just to clarify , this would mean adding an extra step. As I understand it, SW Inspection does not recognise Macro-enabled templates (.xltm), only 97-2003 Templates (.xlt) for report exports This would mean: Generate your inspection report as usual via inspection Standalone or Add-in Save the generated report as macro enabled excel…
Quand j'extrais le sous type de SolidWorks Inspection, celui ci sort en anglais sur mon document. J'utilise le code "SubType". J'aurais besoin de sortir cette information en français. Si quelqu'un a le code qui permet d'extraire cette info? EDITED BY MODERATOR: Moved to Inspection space. Please post to the appropriate space when there is one.…(Show moreShow less)
