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. 
InspectionXpert for AutoCAD customers who are current on maintenance can download the new release from the Customer PortalRead the press release here or visit the InspectionXpert for AutoCAD product page for updated screenshots.
