3D File Support

You can open and import 3D files from other CAD systems directly into an inspection project.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018 supports these formats:
  • 3D XML files
  • PTC® and Creo Parametric files
  • CATIA® V5 CATPart and CATProduct files
You can navigate between the different views of the 3D file using the navigation tree in the top right corner.

The characteristics are ballooned and added to the Bill of Characteristics.

After completing the inspection project, you can generate a Microsoft Excel file, a 2D PDF, or a 3D PDF.
