Other Defect Inspections provide the ability to mark up locations  up on an image of defects and track the life cycle of defect in a similar way to cracks, see Guide to Structural Inspections for more info. Defects don't have any measurement recording requirements therefore no conditional limits can be set.

This guide provides the key steps in setting up the first limit for managing defect inspections.

1. Add the file (Photo or 3D Model) to OnPlan. See Adding a 2D (Photo) or 3D Model for more info.

2. Create Inspection - Other Defect Limit.

3. The limit can now be added to a job step. See article Adding Limits to Job Steps for more info.

1. ADD FILE (Adding a 2D (Photo) or 3D Model)

See Adding a 2D (Photo) or 3D Model for more info.

  2. Limit Category - Select Inspection - Other Defect, the screen will update to the fields required. 
  3. Name - Enter a name for the limit
  4. Description - Enter a name for the limit
