How it works
InspectionXpert First-Article reads in your PDF and TIFF inspection drawings. As you capture each dimension, InspectionXpert First Article automatically adds a uniquely numbered balloon and captures the data so you can review it for accuracy before exporting to a ballooned PDF drawing or to an inspection report form. However, if make use of CAD drawing, the capturing of individual dimension will be done automatically with a single click button.

Just click and drag to capture each inspection dimension and InspectionXpert First-Article uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to ready the quantity, nominal dimension, plus and minus tolerances and type. InspectionXpert captures horizontal and vertical dimensions, split dimensions, notes, hole callouts, finish symbols, and GD&T feature control frames.



Powerful features to handle drawing revision
InspectionXpert First-Article’s Drawing Compare feature lets you compare a newly revised drawing to an already ballooned drawing to see what’s changed.New items show up in green, items to be deleted show as red. Print or save a PDF of the comparison for reference, then accept the changes and easily insert or delete data from your original drawing without having to start over from scratch.
