Reduce the number of triangles in a mesh.

  1. On the ribbon, click the PolyNURBS tab.
  2. Click the Simplify tool.
  3. Select a polymesh. Hold Ctrl or use box selection to select multiple objects.

  4. Choose from the following options:
    • Weld Vertices: Automatically weld coincident vertices to clean up the mesh before performing the Simplify operation.
    • Smooth: Enter a value from 0 to 180 degrees.
    • The following reduction methods are available:
      • Reduce by %: A lower value corresponds to a greater reduction.
      • Reduce Faces: Define the final number of faces, which must be fewer than the number of input faces.
      • Reduce Vertices: Define the final number of edges, which must be fewer than number of input edges.
  5. Click the Simplify button.
  6. Right-click and mouse through the check mark to exit, or double-right-click.
