The products you submit for certification go through two separate queues. Understanding these queues will help you get the most from CheckMate Certification. See CheckMate Queue Page for a detailed description of all the items on this page.
The inspection process is as follows:
A product submitted for CheckMate Certification goes into your CheckMate Queue. You can submit as many products as you like to your Personal Queue, where products are listed by submission date.
Next, one or more Personal Queue products are moved to the CheckMate Inspections queue. Only products in this queue are looked at by an Inspector.
When you first submit models for certification, you can have just one item in the Inspection Queue, while any others you submit afterward remain in your Personal Queue. The inspector will work with you to get this item through a passing inspection. This period of time is called Education Mode.
Once your first model has passed certification, the maximum number of products you can have in the Inspection Queue is determined by your SquidLevel (see below). Products that are not moved into the Inspection Queue remain in the Personal Queue for the time being.
When a product passes inspection, it is moved out of the Inspection Queue. The next Personal Queue submission (by submission date) is moved into the Inspection Queue.
A product that fails inspection remains in the Inspection Queue, waiting for correction and resubmission. Please see Resubmitting a Failed CheckMate Model for important information on how to keep your place in the Inspection Queue when you resubmit.
If a product stays in the Inspection Queue for more than a month without passing certification, it is automatically removed from all queues. Please note that this is unlikely to happen for products where you are actively working with an inspector to pass certification. You may resubmit such a product if you wish.
Maximums by SquidLevel
While you can have as many products as you like in your Personal Queue, the number of your products that can be in the Inspection Queue at any one time is determined automatically by your SquidLevel.
