Do you ever need to perform mathematical calculations while inspecting or reporting?

Particularly inspectors performing Energy Audits or Pest Inspectors frequently need to make certain calculations while inspecting. So it's handy for them to have quick access to a calculator. Of course, other types of inspectors may also find it handy as well- A building inspector might need to calculate a code requirement or something similar for instance. If you are using a regular edition of the 3D Inspection System software, you may add an Action to launch an application like the Windows calculator program. Here's how:

  1. Click Customize My Actions at the bottom of the Actions pane.
  2. Click Add Action. Enter a name for your action, perhaps "Calculate", and click Next
  3. Click next on category and then choose the Misc- Launch an application type of action, click Next.
  4. For the application to launch line type calc.exe
  5. Click Next, and then click Finish.
  6. Click Save to save your new action.

Now you can use the new action to launch the windows calculator any time on demand while inspecting. Of course if you have another calculator program you prefer using instead, you could browse and select that program instead as the application to launch. Other outside programs can also be set up as actions the same way.
