Are you having trouble reading some of the characters in your inspection reports generated by SOLIDWORKS Inspection? The inspection reports often include characters that are not supported by the regular Windows fonts installed on your machine; in this article we will provide a quick and easy solution for that problem.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection uses a specific font called “SolidWorks Inspection GDT ” to communicate the geometric characteristics and tolerance zones. If you have installed SOLIDWORKS Inspection on your machine, the font is used every time you export an Excel report to show the feature control frames and the characteristics they include.
