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)

The SW Add-in software code is not very stable and… (Show more)

I have MS Office 365 installed but the SW Inspection installer cannot find MS Excel. How do I point SW Inspection to the Excel application?

I'm using Solidworks Inspection Add-in and when it auto balloons, it wont balloon values with words before the dimension.   For example, it will auto balloon dimensions such as: 6.97 ± .06 2x 2.00 ± .06 Distance from the compressor to centerline.   HOWEVER, It will not auto balloon dimensions such as: Process Connector .256 +.005/-.003  … (Show more)

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.
