Adding multiple instances to your inspection report where one feature is identified or duplicated on a given part is a snap. Let’s look at the example.
In this example, a 10mm radius is called out in one location and by default will only show up as one item on the inspection report. However, the dimension is typical and somewhat critical to our specific application.
To add line items to the inspection report, simply change the quantity in the Properties tab (in this example, it was changed to 2). Then right-select the specific dimension in the Characteristic tree above. Here you can specify to “Make characteristic for each instance.”
This will create an indexed item on the inspection report for multiple instances. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Remember, it’s the little things!
