High QA’s ballooning software is a key part of the quality management process. One-click auto ballooning using optical character recognition (OCR) takes out the manual process for ballooning and GD&T extraction saving you time and money. You really can automatically balloon drawings for your quality process.
How Do You Balloon Drawings and Extract GD&T/PMI Data?
Hundreds of balloons need to be hand-drawn. Dimensions and notes need to be manually entered into a spreadsheet. Interpretation and data entry errors lead to inaccuracies in quality.
High QA software is an efficient, automated digitized solution to automate ballooning drawings and extracting GD&T/PMI data into a useable dynamic bill of characteristics.
Auto ballooning software lets you balloon drawings and create bill of characteristics in minutes, not hours or days
Automatically balloon and extract GD&T/PMI data using sophisticated OCR technology
No Cut and Paste
Prevents data entry and human interpretation errors

Take advantage of 3D MBD in your manufacturing quality workflow
Manufacturing quality engineers have traditionally used 2D drawings throughout the planning and inspection process. With the rise of Quality 4.0, many companies now expect their suppliers to use a 3D Model-Based Definition (3D MBD) workflow.
That’s why High QA has made it simple to incorporate 3D models in your quality process. PMI data is automatically extracted and ballooned when the 3D MBD file is opened in the ballooning software.
- Automatically and intelligently extract GD&T and PMI from 3D MBD models
- Easily modify and manage extracted GD&T and PMI data
- Use 3D MBD data throughout your manufacturing quality process
Speed Up Ballooning of Tabulated Drawings with High QA Ballooning Software
You don’t have to manually create inspection plans for every individual part instance in a tabulated or parametric drawing.
High QA ballooning software enables you to create a tabulated master part record, define tabulated dimensions and automatically extract tabulated parameter tables from the drawing.
Then with one-click, the ballooning software will generate part records for any or all tabulated instances with specific inspection plans for each part.
