Hi,
The model can be decimated to a small number of faces, but the normals may be adjusted to get a better vision.
The original model file:https://app.box.com/s/2ycf7j6uc5lzlqtj4rj0acvhuhdvzwyl
The full resolution picture after join vertex and normals:https://app.box.com/s/9fx76l2r9bw4tbm8tw8i4nhg4tua4e37
The reduction result:https://app.box.com/s/7p73g8wf2sw2xdueuvi0mxx9kikjb35t

Of course, I can get a better vision to select a high resolution.
But I am just wondering is there a way(eg. adjust some params) to get a better vision with lower resolution.

Thanks Smile

Hi Wangyang,

Thanks for the model and the screen captures.

You can set visualization to 'Flat Shading' (Menu | View | Flat Shading'). But this only changes the visual appearance in Balancer. This does actually introduce any new normal and won't affect how the model is saved.
It depends on how you will use your saved model.

Balancer cannot introduce any new normal boundaries. It can only preserve the existing ones.

Best regards!
