We've released the new InspectionXpert for AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 which includes an redesigned and updated interface and tighter, single-window integration with AutoCAD Mechanical.

The single window integration shows users all of the dimensions and notes that are instantly extracted from their drawing file within a characteristic tree. This makes it easy to make changes on the fly and see the results in your AutoCAD drawing immediately. Another key improvement is the ability to save the inspection project data in the AutoCAD drawing file so inspectors can easily make changes, or quickly handle drawing revisions.  The "refresh project" feature shows the inspector in red or green what dimensions have been deleted or added to the drawing since the last inspection project was created.

We are excited to announce the release of CMMXpert, a new add-on for InspectionXpert for PDF and InspectionXpert OnDemand. CMMXpert streamlines quality inspection processes by importing results from CMM routines directly into InspectionXpert for quick, and customizable, reporting and increased accuracy.

Once CMMXpert merges results data with ballooned characteristics in InspectionXpert, results are color-coded both on the drawing and in the measurement interface to show in tolerance, out of tolerance, or marginal conditions.  Users can also control settings to show the color-coded results in their inspection reports.

InspectionXpert's new CMM Import add-on is unique in that we can import results from almost any CMM program, saving inspectors hours of frustration. This new product is a natural progression for InspectionXpert towards providing capabilities for managing the inspection process from beginning to end. 

Current customers of InspectionXpert for PDF can download the 2012 sp 3.0 release from the Customer Portal and try out the new CMMXpert add-on.  InspectionXpert OnDemand customers already have access to the latest version. Click here for the knowledgebase article on How to Turn on CMMXpert.

For years we’ve heard from clients, especially those employed by large organizations, complain about the time it takes to load and deploy new software on their desktop computers. Though our users are quite aware of the time and cost benefits associated with automated inspection tools, overwhelmed IT departments or time-consuming installation processes can easily create bottlenecks to deployment of new technology. Over the past year, we’ve put our developers to work on finding a way to deploy our leading automated quality inspection tools that reduce or eliminate the need to involve IT resources.
