Getting Started

This article will cover Verity reports. Verity reports allow the user to export results from Verity into shareable formats.

Reporting Window

You can locate the reporting section in the top left of the Verity Menu. If nothing is selected in the Verity table it will include all items in the report. Otherwise, only the selected items will be exported in the report.


CSV

Export all Verity Table properties of the selected items to CSV format using the current sorting in the Verity Table. This is extremely useful for utilizing the data from Verity for business or process analytics. This can be loaded into Excel or database applications and used to aggregate data across subcontractors, projects, or even your whole company.


HTML

Export the selected items to several different types of HTML reports that can be opened on any device with an internet browser. None of these reports contain any scripts or other content that would prevent them from running on any particular platform or browser. Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, and Linux are all supported, and they should work on other unlisted systems as long as the browser supports HTML. HMTL reports will automatically open in your default web browser once created. The Items reporta are the only exception since it creates multiple unlinked reports.

Summary

This will generate a single HTML file that contains aggregate data about the analysis as a whole. This includes graphics and metrics. This is identical in form to the autogenerated summary report, but will respect the current selection (as long as more than one object is selected).

Table

This will generate an HTML table of the selected elements, similar in content to the CSV export but in HTML.

Items

This report generates unlinked item reports for each selected item. The reports are identical to the item reports generated by the Table + Items option with the exception of the Previous, Table, and Next buttons. Item reports do not include tables.

Table + Items

This report will generate both the table above and individual item reports for each selected item in the Verity table. The table acts as a table of contents with items hyperlinked to the item reports and sequentially numbered so you can identify an individual HTML item page in the report elements folder. Each individual item report is a self-contained HTML file, and has the split pane view format as images to accompany the metrics associated with the item. The views are generated using the current settings in the Verity viewer for visibility of geometry, heatmaps, etc… The navigation buttons at the top to move between items within the full report. These links will work as long as the report and reportelements folder maintain the same relative file path.

Verity Web Report

Verity Web Reports operate in a similar manner to HTML reports. Each Item report, however, will additionally contain a fully navigable 3D view. Additionally, report, as the name suggests, view-able from any web browser. You can locate the report web link in each item report or the Manage Reports menu. Verity Web Reports are also permanently deletable from the Manage Reports menu as well.

Smart Points

Export the points associated with the selected items to a unified PTS file on the Navisworks project coordinate system. These PTS files are importable into Navisworks or any authoring platform with PTS support. This report also follows WYSIWIG and any points and heatmaps visible on your screen will export to the PTS file.

Merged: Verity will create one point cloud containing all the data for all the selected items.

Per Item: Verity will create separate point cloud files, one for each of the points belonging to the selected items.

OBJ (As-Built)

Export the selected items’ As-Built geometry as an OBJ mesh file. A multiple item selection will export to a single OBJ file. Since OBJ files have no scale header, we are exporting using meters and you’ll need to define that on import.
