Getting Started

This article will cover the process of importing data into Verity. This will include importing both geometry items and scan data into Verity. This article will also share some tips and tricks for analysis times and ease of quality checking.


Select the items in NavisWorks and import them using the Add To Verity (Search Tree) or (Selected node) options. The Search Tree option will try to identify the individual items from the search tree. The Selected Node options will bring in the items however the user has it selected.

Tip: The majority of the time the Search Tree option is what should be used.

Select the scan data that is going to be analysed in Verity from the selection tree. Once selected, click on either the Add To Verity (Search Tree) or (Selected node) options. This will import the selected scans into Verity.

Tips for Verity Analysis

Prioritize coverage over density when working with point cloud data for Verity.

Verity only needs roughly about a thousand points to identify an element. A denser point cloud can slow down Verity’s performance. Use a decimation filter or choose every other scan when using denser data to ensure faster analysis times.

When items are imported, sort by the geometry surface area and remove smaller elements like nuts, bolts, inserts, smaller plates ect. These elements usually are small enough where there isn’t enough point cloud coverage and can slow down the analysis.

After you have completed importing your data into Verity, you can continue on to Analyze in Verity. Refer to this article for more information.
