IP Planner used SolidWork's GD&T capabilities to develop and embed this electronic inspection plan in the CAD model.


The package consists of IP Planner (resident in CAD) and IP Measure (resident in PC-DMIS measurement software). IP Planner, an add-on module, uses the GD&T capabilities in CAD systems to create virtual, marked-up part blueprints that define each feature to inspect and the inspection method. IP Measure then creates a predefined pattern of hits on each feature and an optimized probe path among them.
