Simplifying Mesh or Point Cloud Files

To simplify the file:

  1. Set a value for Reduction amount (%) or for Target mesh size or point cloud size.
    The PropertyManager reports the Original and the Final Mesh Size or Point Cloud Size. The model updates dynamically.
  2. To simplify only a part of a mesh-based model, under Local Simplification, select a tool, select the area to simplify, and move the slider to adjust the simplification.
  3. Click PM_next.gif.
    For point clouds, ScanTo3D constructs a mesh from the point cloud data.
