Formal Additive Inspection is Now Supported

You can now request a formal inspection with a dimensional report for your additive manufacturing projects! This new offering, similar to inspection options for CNC and sheet metal parts, will produce a formal report that will ship with your order. This report will showcase measurement data on critical features defined by your provided drawing.

 This new inspection option pairs perfectly with 3D-printed end-use parts and parts with quality management system requirements such as ISO 9001, AS9100D, and ISO 13485.

At Xometry, all parts receive a standard inspection at no additional charge. The table below shows the differences between selecting Standard Inspection or Formal Inspection with Dimensional Report.
