    • Probe Configurations. You can now use more than one CheckMate probe in a single segment.
    • Created an new Probe builder application that supports multiple configuration to support probe changers.

    • Collision Detection. Ability add to generate a "CheckMate Fixture" for collision detection.
    • Automated program generation from PMI. Identical workflows to process MBD annotations from both DimXpert (AutoMBD) or QIF (QIF2Segment), including support to use SOLIDWORKS Inspection balloons as characteristic labels.


    • Digital Twin enhancement. CheckMate changes the face color of the CAD geometry based on tolerance condition, i.e. In or Out.
    • Bonus tolerance enhancement. Now, add actual diameters to virtual feature(s) so that even virtual features are included in GD&T analysis of bonus tolerance.
    • PDF Reports. Complete width from the Reporting Browser fields is now included in PDF reports.
    • Layout Names. Width of the field has been increased.
