Helium rough reports
Customizing printing and viewing Helium Rough reports

All available reports for rough diamonds are listed in the "View", "Print" and "Export" menus of the "Report preview" window.

The content of these menus is updated dynamically. It depends on available report templates. The "Report preview" window is invoked by the "Rough report" command from the system menu of the "Marking-out" window. Make sure to select one of the solutions in the list on the "Marking" tab before opening the "Report preview" window.

Helium software searches the "Report" subfolder for the initialization (*.ini) files and looks through all such files. Initialization files related to viewing and printing reports for rough diamonds should have the following format.

Keys of the [General] and [FileNames] sections

These sections are mandatory.

ReportType: This key is mandatory. It should have the "RoughRTFView" or "RoughRTFPrint" string for this type of report. Depending on this type there will be added and item to the "View" or "Print" menu of the "Report preview" window. The "Print" command generates the report using the selected template, fills it with report parameters and picture and sends it to the default printer immediately. The generated report will not be shown on screen. The "View" command fills the report template and opens it in the MS Word. It is possible to print the document or save it to file. Both of these commands require MS Word installed.

VisibleName: This key is mandatory. The value of this key will be shown in the "Print" or "View" menu.

TemplateRTF: This key is mandatory. It should have the name of the source template file in the RTF format.

Keys of the [DefaultPictureParameters] section

This section is optional. It contains default values of picture parameters for all pictures. Each picture may redefine any parameter in its own section. If the picture's section doesn't have some parameter, its value is taken from this section. For the detailed description of parameters see the [Picture] section.

[Picture] sections

These sections are optional and specify the attributes of report pictures that require additional attributes. The number in the section name does not have a special meaning. It just enumerates sections. Helium software supports up to 100 sections of this type.

PictureID: This key is mandatory. It should contain the tag of the picture ROUGH_REPORT_MODEL or PIECE_REPORT_MODEL or DIAMOND_REPORT_MODEL or DIAMOND_PIECE_REPORT_MODEL written in capital letters.
The picture with the ROUGH_REPORT_MODEL tag contains a model of the rough diamond with all inscribed diamonds in it and all sawing planes and all inclusions.
The picture with the PIECE_REPORT_MODEL tag contains a model of a piece of the rough diamond cut by the sawing plane with diamonds that were inscribed in that piece and inclusions that are located within that piece if any. Helium software sorts rough pieces by the weight of the diamonds inscribed into the piece. At first goes the piece with the largest inscribed diamond.
The picture with the DIAMOND_PIECE_REPORT_MODEL tag contains a model of a piece of the rough diamond cut by the sawing plane with diamonds that were inscribed in that piece and inclusions that are located within that piece if any. But in this case rough pieces are sorted in the same order as diamonds.
The picture with the DIAMOND_REPORT_MODEL tag contains a model of the inscribed diamond and inclusions that are located within that diamond if any.

Bookmark: This key is mandatory. It should contain the name of the MS Word bookmark in the RTF template for the picture. All bookmarks should be written in capital letters. During the report generation this bookmark will be replaced with the picture.

PieceNumber: This key is mandatory if the PictureID key is equal to PIECE_REPORT_MODEL. It specifies the number of the piece of the rough diamond to be drawn on the picture.

DiamondNumber: This key is mandatory if the PictureID key is equal to DIAMOND_REPORT_MODEL or DIAMOND_PIECE_REPORT_MODEL. It specifies the number of the diamond to be drawn on the picture. If the PictureID=DIAMOND_PIECE_REPORT_MODEL the program searches for the rough piece that has the given diamond inside and draws the found rough piece with the given diamond inside.

X, Y, Z: These keys are optional. If the key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. It is the angle of rotation of the 3D model around X, Y, Z axis in degrees before making the final image. This attribute allows to create various views of the same model.

RoughVisibleEdgesColorR, RoughVisibleEdgesColorG, RoughVisibleEdgesColorB: These keys are optional. If the key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. They specify the RGB color for drawing visible edges of the 3D model of the rough diamond.

ModelVisibleEdgesColorR, ModelVisibleEdgesColorG, ModelVisibleEdgesColorB: These keys are optional. If the key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. They specify the RGB color for drawing visible edges of 3D models of diamonds inscribed into the rough diamond.

SawColorR, SawColorG, SawColorB: These keys are optional. If the key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. They specify the RGB color for drawing the sawing plane over the 3D model of the rough diamond.

InclusionColorR, InclusionColorG, InclusionColorB: These keys are optional. If the key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. They specify the RGB color for drawing inclusions on pictures.

RoughOutline: This key is optional. If this key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. It specifies the way of drawing rough models. If this key is zero, all visible edges of the model will be drawn, if this key is not zero, only the outline of the model will be drawn.

ReflectionCount: This key is optional. If this key is not specified it is assumed to be zero. It specified the way of drawing inclusions on pictures. If this key is equal to -1, inclusions are not drawn. If this key is equal to 0, inclusions will be drawn without any distortions caused by light refraction or reflection. If this key is equal to 1, each inclusion is drawn taking refraction of the light into account. If this key is equal to 2 or more, each inclusion is drawn taking into account light refraction and light reflections (1 or more accordingly).

InclusionSize: This key is optional. If this key is not specified it is assumed to be equal to 100. It specified the scale for drawing inclusions. The default value of 100 (percents) may be increased or decreased to produce the most appropriate size of inclusions on the picture. For example, the value 200 will make inclusions drawn two times larger than default.

ModelIncrease: This key is optional. If this key is specified it defines the scale for drawing diamonds inside the rough model. All diamonds are magnified according to this setting and intersected with the rough model. It allows to highlight areas on the diamond that come close to the rough model surface. For example, if ModelIncrease=102, diamonds are magnified in 1.02 times.
