Clarity runs the following AutoCAD tasks:

  • Opt-in to tracking DWG/DST files
  • PDF 
  • eTransmit

Procore Synch

IMAGINiT Clarity supports the ability to push files to Procore in previous releases and in 2022, Clarity supports the ability to Sync to Procore.

From / To Synchronisation for Non-CAD files

Instead of solely moving, copying and synching Revit and AutoCAD files or tasks, IMAGINiT Clarity can do this on any file that is stored somewhere else, on demand or on schedule sych as SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Google Drive, etc.

Native Revit PDF Export

Autodesk has included native PDF export and IMAGINiT Clarity has fully integrated this feature instead of relying on PDF drivers, and IMAGINiT have added this option inside the PDF task options.

  • BIM Collaborate Pro
  • BIM 360 Upload Post Task: Same File
  • BIM 360 Upload Post Task: Folder Structure – match from/to folder structures
  • BIM 360 Project Backup: More Data – Back up more data and meta data
    • Issues
    • Checklists
    • RFI’s
    • Assets
    • Forms (Unified Platform)
  • BIM 360 Data Connector / Extraction – Extract data from BIM 360 

A new server (not project based) task has been added to Clarity 2022 which downloads Account level data from BIM 360 for Business Intelligence.

Autodesk BIM 360 and Construction Cloud through the Clarity task in 2022, downloads CSV’s of t his data and businesses can use apps like Power BI for business intelligence.

Data Reporting

IMAGINiT Clarity has support for easy data integration into Excel, Power BI, Teams and Tableau, etc.

 

Through one-click, an external link is provide which can then be embedded into external systems where reporting is required by using the ‘GetData’ button in the required systems without having to worry about configuring it to work with SQL and setting permissions.

Cross Project Queries

Clarity 2022 manages an index database with everything in one place where administrators can run cross project queries and visualise and analyse data through Business Intelligence systems like Power BI, Excel and Tableau.

Once an external link is generated, credentials can limit which projects are visible.

These queries can answer such questions such as what was the average size of a specific type of room/s in the last 5 projects
