of vertex positions and colors.
• Door Family Type and Instance parameters and associated data.
• Wall parameter subsets and associated data for walls containing door openings.
• Project Name information for the analyzed model.
• Shared coordinates from Linked Models (if applicable).
• Location/Bounds/Name/Number for rooms.
• 2D geometry for Floor Plans, as selected by User for analysis.
• Images (PNG) of sheet views, as selected by User for analysis.
• Text contents of Schedules, as selected by User for analysis.
• Other files, as uploaded by User during analysis.
• Assigned User profile of the person conducting analysis.
