Hi,
Balancer helps me to reduct the model from file size 42M to 150k.
Now, it remains 2885 faces. The file can be download from https://app.box.com/s/4wstptq2p40t3lc0s6j165e63w3ewz8q
But it seems more reduction can be done without lose the quality.
I have tried to adjust the Torlance but seemed not work, any advice?

Thanks.

Hi,
Thank you for your question and for providing us with your simplified model.
Most (but not all) of the boundary vertices that prevent further simplification can be fixed with 'Eliminate T-Junction' tool. Apply Tool | Eliminate T-Junction in Balancer or use '-Tj' option in decimon. Use this tool after 'Join Vertices'.
I hope that using 'Join vertices' and 'Join Normals' on the original model can improve simplification.

In decimon, you can also use '-f' option, which applies all the available fixes.
In Balancer in the log window, you can see how much vertices are affected by a specific tool. If the number is not zero, you can try to apply the same or other tool again. Typically, there is no need to run the same tool more than once, but for some models it might be necessary.

Best regards Smile

"Eliminate T-Junction' really works. The faces count is reduced to 1641 with the same tolerance.

Smile Thanks.
