We have project templates and excel templates saved in a network location. Instead of manually navigating to the file each time, is there a way to set a default file location like we can with drawing templates? This is for 2017 SP 3.0 with the SW Inspection add-in.

Hello,   I have a few questions in regards to adding multipliers to various drawing attributes. I've had some difficulty getting the following to work and would be interested to know if there are solutions:   1) Multipliers on Dimensions and Corresponding GD&T - When I link a GD&T control frame to a dimension that has a multiplier, the… (Show more)

It looks as though SolidWorks Inspection will truncate any leading or trailing whitespace in a note string. I am looking for a way to force Inspection to balloon a note if it doesn't match any of the existing criteria, but without changing it's appearance (while using the auto-balloon feature). A leading or trailing whitespace character could… (Show more)

Hello,   I have experienced a bug in the rounding behavior between SolidWorks and Inspection Add-In. When a limit tolerance is applied to three places, with the last digit being a 5 (ex: +.025), and the precision is only displayed to two places, SolidWorks rounds the number UP on the drawing, but rounds DOWN inside Inspection. I attached a photo… (Show more)

Since updating to 2018, SW Inspection returns 0 value when tolerance is a +0 or -0. If a value is there, it is handled correctly.      Ex 1:  2.000 +.000/-.005 returns values of Upper Limit = 0.000, Lower Limit = 1.995      Ex 2:   Ø1.750 drawn and the tolerance as 'LIMIT' with +.000 and -.000 returns Upper Limit = 0.000 and Lower Limit = 1.745… (Show more)

We evaluated the add-in but so far decided it is not worth it. Here is a list of frustrations that we faced. I'm putting these here in hopes of SW fixing these issues in later versions and we might reconsider:   Overall: Documentation is poor. Had to search the web and forums to find answers. The SW Add-in software code is not very stable and… (Show more)

We are looking to purchase and implement Inspection but one of our problems is that it does not seem to have the ability to use a CTQ callout instead of the inspection balloon.   CTQ's are one of those grey/gray area's in the standards but are required by our parent company.   Is this something SolidWorks is working on implementing?   Also would… (Show more)

Let's say I only want to have 15 dims on each tab of excel and one part I am measuring now have 45 dimensions.   In my template I only have one tab there, is it possible to let solidworks inspection automatically export three tabs based on that one-tab template I have now?   I have tried the IXFooterRow001 in the template but it only expands the… (Show more)
