Getting Started

This article will cover the three QA tools inside of Verity. These QA tools can be located in the bottom left of the Verity menu.

Measure

Measure tool

The Measure tool will allow you to measure the distance in screen space from two clicked points. Measure does not snap to points or geometry. Therefore, use the Measure tool as a means of understanding the size of elements in Verity, or the distance between elements, points, or geometry in the plane of the view. This tool will only work in the projected plan views within split view.


Measure Scan Point Distance

Measure scan point distance

Measure Scan Point Distance will take a clicked point on the As-Built surface and measure the average distance from that point to the points used to fit the As-Built geometry to the point cloud. This provides a spot measurement tool that is repeatable and doesn’t rely on a single point as the basis of measurement. Error ranges and number of points provide the variance within the point data at that location. When active this mode will highlight the As-Built geometry, and the cursor will change to a cross hair when hovering over the As-Built geometry and taking a measurement is possible.


Distance between As-Built geometry and As-Designed Geometry

distance between as built geometry and as designed geometry

This tool will take a clicked point on the As-Built surface and measure the distance from that point to the same point on the As-Designed surface. This provides a spot-measurement tool between the two identical geometries. The tool reports the linear distance as well as the X, Y, and Z components in project coordinates. When active this mode will highlight the As-Built geometry. Additionally, the cursor will change to a cross hair when hovering over the As-Built geometry and taking a measurement is possible.
