Inspection Geni for SolidWorks gives designers peace of mind

Designers can use Albitech's SolidWorks-Inspection Geni™ to make their lives easier following the release of their drawings

Hertzlia, Israel September 16, 2010 — A new player in the SolidWorks® CAD Solution Partner space, Albitech Ltd, announced that the latest version of Inspection Geni (IG) has shipped today. This powerful release incorporates numerous new features such as the ability to interactively review changes made to every drawing created using SolidWorks.

Today, designers working with SolidWorks frequently lose control of their designs as soon as they release their drawings for review said Doron Sashkis, CEO of Albitech. "Repeated discussions around dimensions, drawings, notes, part lists, BOM and production instructions are frequently aggravating, ineffective and time consuming

"Designers are often forced to rework their projects after they have been submitted for review," said Sashkis, citing reasons as diverse as the need to provide IDs for hundreds of dimensions, and problematic issues such as non-manufacturable design elements, coating considerations and 'tricky' chamfers.

"To top it all, designers also need to deal with revised requirements that create multiple project versions with limited time and resources to track and understand changes," he added.

"Designers can now get their history right - where it matters and when it matters, down to the dimension level, and for every version."

IG for SolidWorks empowers designers by automatically producing the project’s dimension ID’s, which cut across the lifecycle and version changes of the project. With these dimension ID’s and history module, designers are now in the driver seat, armed to respond promptly and accurately to any changes or inquiries.

"IG for SolidWorks is the all-in-one add-in partner solution that has the power and features professionals need to automatically generate inspection sheets, drawings with dimensional IDs and archives," he said, adding that IG for SolidWorks is the fastest, most feature-packed version of the software ever released.

"We invite the design community to experience the power and grace of this technology today," Sashkis concluded.


High-Speed Inspection Process for SolidWorks

Albitech Ltd Brings High-Speed Inspection Process Capabilities to SolidWorks 2010 CAD Software

Inspection Geni enables engineering and QC departments to speed up the inspection preparation, documentation, storage, and archive processes; slash time to market, achieve a rapid ROI and environmentally friendly industry standards.

Hertzlia, Israel April 10, 2010 — Albitech Ltd today announces the availability of Inspection Geni™; a SolidWorks® 2010 3D CAD add-in partner solution that automatically generates inspection sheets, drawings with dimensional IDs and archives available for inspected dimensions and inspection documents.

SolidWorks 2010 is focused on optimizing core design functions so users can more quickly and intelligently achieve their goals. It also includes hundreds of new enhancements specifically requested by customers.

The new version of SolidWorks improves designers’ and engineers’ productivity with new capabilities like rapid dimensions, enhanced mirrored components, and heads-up mouse gesturing. These capabilities let designers and engineers work smarter and faster while minimizing menu navigation.

Designers, engineers and QC department will use Inspection Geni and SolidWorks software to:

  • Automatically sort designs - creating a dimensional database giving you a perfect interface to plan your inspection process.
  • Planning - Plan the inspection of a particular product part by creating a template defining the measuring tools and related tolerances.
  • Inspection - Print blank inspection reports for sorting using a measurement tool with different inspection stations, like high gauge, CMM and manual inspection.
  • Documentation - Automatically print inspection documents and MRB reports.
  • Archive - Save the technical changes history made to any manufactured part and archive all the correspondence with the designer.
  • Environmentally - Friendly - Adopt environmentally friendly industry standards within a completely digital manufacturing environment.

“Engineers don’t have time to worry about software complexity or the problem of integrating data between separate applications,” said Nick Iwaskow, SolidWorks Manager, Alliances. “Combining Inspection Geni’s creation of inspection documents, drawing with dimensional IDs with comprehensive archive capabilities with SolidWorks 2010 3D CAD enables engineers to focus on innovation, quality, and productivity instead of learning how to use the software.”

Tightly integrated with SolidWorks, Inspection Geni enables designers and QC engineers to analyze dimensions and automatically add data into the inspection template. “The dimensions are stored in a database allowing users to immediately view the highlighted connected dimensions,” says Doron Sashkis, CEO, Albitech. “Thanks to this, our customers report that they shave up to 90% off the time they typically spend on the inspection documentation process.”
