QA-CAD is an essential tool in the engineering design process. If you are still plotting drawings and adding numbered stamps and revisions by hand, then QA-CAD is for you! Save your valuable time and resources with our QA stamping software that overlays drawings with auto-numbered stamps and markup notes and corrections (text, sketches, boxes, lines and arrows). With just a press of a button the drawing, along with the revision stamps and markup notes/corrections, can be saved to a PDF and sent in an email. The source drawing remains untouched by the stamping and markup operations.
(QA-CAD also includes all the features and functions of CAD Viewer, CAD Markup, SymbolCAD, and also includes the valuable add-on extension CAD Viewer Batch Command.)
Export embedded data to EXCEL/CSV: • Export embedded data to EXCEL forms for First Article Inspection, AS9102/EN 9102 and PPAP • Export embedded data to a spreadsheet (EXCEL/ CSV) for revision management or inspection • Export ballooned drawing to PDF • Export bills of characters to customisable EXCEL reports.
Balloons (bubbles) drawing feature: • You can choose to draw balloons (bubbles) or QA Stamps on AutoCAD / PDF drawing • Overlay drawings with unlimited no. of balloons or QA stamps and Markup annotations. • Field-based data or attributes may be embedded into balloons or QA stamps.
Support multiple formats: • Vector (DWG, DXF, HPGL/2, DWF), pixel (TIFF, JPG, BMP) and PDF formats can be opened and stamped. • All AutoCAD DWG/DXF versions/ formats support including AutoCAD 2019. • Inventor DWG format support including Inventor 2019. • Save the drawing with bubbles and markup overlays to PDF, DWG, DXF, TIFF ...
Auto-numbered Balloons: • Stamps are automatically numbered and easily configured. • Alter numbering system of balloons (QA Stamps) anytime during stamping process.
Balloon size, color and numbers: • Color changer - Choose from 20 different ballooning ink (stamping inks). • Alter each stamp to any size. • Rotate stamps in any direction. • Add leaders to stamps.
Capture data from CAD drawing: • Automatically pick up dimension values from drawings. • Automatically pick up GD&T symbols from drawings. (plan to support in near future)
Save balloon edits: • Save balloons (QA stamps) and markup annotations separate to the drawing.
Integration with your email software: • Send ballooned PDF by email with just the process of a button.
User-defined Stamp: • User-defined Time / Date / 'Checked by' stamp.
Field entry control: • Option to configure field entry controls as a dropdown list of user defined values.
