Inspection Documentation Requirements
For all inspections, Xometry requires the use of calibrated tools.
For a Standard Inspection, the part material, features, and finish must be verified in accordance with the supplied CAD model or print and the requirements specified in the order, which will be clearly noted on the Purchase Order provided with each job. If no print is provided with the job, all dimensions will be measured at +/- 0.005”. Inspection results may be recorded in the Partner standard inspection report format unless otherwise stated.
We require new Xometry Partners to use the Partner Inspection Form QA2F04 when performing inspections for their first three (3) jobs.
Note: A CMM report can be used in lieu of the Xometry Standard Inspection Report.
Once complete, the standard inspection documentation should be uploaded to the Partner Portal only and NOT included in the box with the parts.
Note: Required only for new partners during the first three (3) jobs probationary period. For Standard Inspection requirements after the three jobs probationary period, see below.
Additive Inspection Requirements
Unless specifically requested by us, additive part inspection is not required. The only exception is DMLS parts, for which we require photographs to be uploaded prior to shipping.
Check out each additive processes inspection and quality standards in more depth.
