I know ACM can generate inspection sheets based upon the dimensioning (you mark if a dimension needs to be part of the sheet, it gets a letter etc.), however the following has now come up:
On first production we have a longer Intial Quality Inspection Sheet (longer meaning that basically _all_ dimensions need to be checked - and as such need to be on the sheet) and then on proceding productions only a selection of the dimensions will need to be inspected.
Can we make ACM generate those two inpection sheets in 1 go without having to double-dimension the drawing or having to generate 1, edit the drawing, and then generate the other?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Another suggestion is to use Autodesk Design Review, it's free and you can download from our website:http://usa.autodesk.com/.
You can export your ACM files to dxf format, then you can compare sheet in ADR.
Yes, but that does not actually generate a list.
Basically the workflow is as follows:
- dimension (and ACM allows me to mark "inspection" dimensions, which get a letter added)
- set up inspection list: the letters, with dimensions and tollerances in a list, not a drawing.
- inspect the production by measuring it and marking/checking off on the list.
I was expecting ACM to output to a list, because it supports the inspection letters, tollerances etc AND because this is a very common workflow in mechanical production. A bit like the BOM functionality.
Currently our draughtsmen now need to type over the dimensions, letters etc to either Excel or a ACM table.
