All new partners will ship work directly to Xometry for additional inspection. There will be cases where partners will be asked to do a remote inspection from time to time. A remote inspection is an inspection done through a complete inspection report as well as photos of certain dimensions supplied by our Virtual Quality Control (VQC) team. The image on the right is a copy of our exact requirements and guidelines for a remote photo inspection. Partners that achieve an excellent track record of producing high-quality, on-time parts will be approved to ship directly to our customers as a direct ship partner, with no inspection from us needed.
