Here is a look at the 6 main inspection options Xometry offers:

Standard Inspection:

QC will verify that the part material, features, and finish are in accordance with the part requirements specified in the quote, CAD file, and/or print. If no dimensional print is provided with a part, QC measures to Xometry's Manufacturing Standards on dimensions they deem critical, such as overall size, holes, and depths. The inspection will be in-process. Documentation will not be shipped with your parts.

Standard Inspection With Dimensional Report:

A quality inspector will perform an inspection using calibrated tools where 100% of all dimensions, attributes, dimensional locations and print notes will be documented for at least 1 piece. A dimensional inspection report with a correlated ballooned print will be shipped with your part(s). A customer-supplied dimensional print is required for this inspection.

CMM Inspection With Dimensional Report:

QC will perform an in-house inspection using a Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) where 100% of all dimensions, attributes, dimensional locations and print notes will be documented for at least 1 piece. A CMM dimensional report with a correlated ballooned print will be shipped with your part(s). A customer-supplied dimensional print is required for this inspection.

Custom Inspection:

Choose this option if your part requires custom inspection requirements such as, but not limited to, the following: First Article Inspections (per AS9102), Non-Destructive Testing, Serialization, Source Inspection, Custom Sampling Plan, or if you would like to provide your own inspection datasheet.

FAQ:

What is included in a Standard Inspection?

Our QC team will measure to Xometry's Manufacturing Standards on dimensions they deem critical, such as overall size, holes, and depths.

Does the Standard Inspection include a dimensional report?

No. The Standard Inspection is a simple dimensional check and no documentation will ship with your parts.

How can I receive a dimensional inspection report?

Upgrade to Standard Inspection with Dimensional Report or CMM Inspection with Dimensional Report to receive a full dimensional inspection report that is correlated to your drawing.

Can you verify GD&T geometric tolerances like position, flatness, surface profile, parallelism, etc...?

Yes. If your part has GD&T requirements, it must be inspected using a Coordinate Measuring Machine. Please choose the CMM Inspection with Dimensional Report option.

Do you offer First Article Inspections?

Yes. This would require a Custom Inspection.

What can I expect to see in a Dimensional Report?

A dimensional inspection report will include a correlated ballooned print. Below is an example of a Xometry dimensional inspection report with a correlated ballooned print.

Where can I learn more about your inspection options?
