More about Simplification

The following section aims at describing simplification operation in more details:

Simplification functionalityTop

  • Lets simplify a part or an assembly using an additional tessellation to generate a coarser mesh.
  • Provides a selectable tessellation which lets you manage the file size against precision of the representation.
  • Lets you drastically reduce the size of your assembly. 

How is the Simplification Representation Calculated?Top

You generate a simplification representation by:

  • computing a new mesh of the original geometry using an approximation error
    (= accuracy parameter)
  • removing and/or merging the existing triangles of this geometry

The following example aims at illustrating these two steps as well as the impact of accuracy parameter on the final result.
