What’s New 2018 – Smart Extract in SOLIDWORKS Inspection

SOLIDWORKS have made Inspection even more accessible to those using different software. DWGs are now fully supported in the standalone application. Essentially, Inspection documentation is now a 3 step process:

1. Import a DWG, TIFF, or PDF file.
2. Simply click the characteristics to capture them using the new to 2018 Smart Capture tool.
3. Export to create a ballooned drawing and an Inspection Report.


Using the new Smart Capture Capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018, make capturing each characteristic quick, accurate, and easy, just one click for each characteristic. As the Limits and all the dimension type information is grabbed automatically, one click creates a fully propagated characteristic which is ready for your Inspection Report.


Well, now you can create zero error documentation in just a few clicks of the mouse, from any DWG Drawing, as well as the PDF and TIFF functionality that SOLIDWORKS Inspection already uses. You can even update revisions quickly and easily! Watch the below video:
