Article by Sam Sharkawi updated October 28, 2017


I’m sure you know SOLIDWORKS Inspection can open SOLIDWORKS Drawing files as well as PDFs and TIFFs, but did you know that SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018 can work with other CAD drawing files such as:

  • AutoCAD DWG files
  • PTC Drawing files
  • CATIA V5 CATDrawing files

Smart Extract is a new feature inside SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018, that is used to pull one or more characteristics based on the predefined settings in the file!
