DoubleCAD User Manual : TC Mesh Simplification

Available in TurboCAD Pro and Platinum only

Simplifies meshes by reducing the total polygon count. For example you can use it for reducing the number of the polygons in the laser scanned model (e.g. from 400000 to 4000 triangles).

  1. Select a mesh or TC Surface.

  2. Select the Percent to Keep.

  3. Click the Finish button or select Finish from the local menu.

    Ignore Boundaries, Contract Boundaries at end, Fix Boundaries: this switch tells the simplifier how should it process the models boundaries (boundary = set of the edges where each edge belongs to the one triangle only)
    Do Full Update before simplification: you should use this setting if the simplifier fails or its result is incorrect. Usually it means that the simplifier's input model was incorrect. You may try to heal the model by using "Do Full Update" in this case.
