Products | Atangeo Balancer and Balancer nPro

The best polygon reduction technology is now available as an efficient, easy to use and highly affordable tool.

ROBUST and ACCURATE

Atangeo Balancer features high quality, high fidelity mesh simplification (aka polygon reduction or mesh decimation). It accurately preserves the model visual appearance, features, normals, texture coordinates, materials and layer boundaries.

PERFECT BALANCE

Quickly and easily find your perfect balance between visual appearance and the number of polygons. Instantly pick an optimized model with required face count or use accurate tolerance-based simplification to obtain desired visual quality just in one click.

ULTRA FAST and EFFICIENT

Balancer is extremely fast and efficient. Very small memory footprint and high speed performance allow Balancer to quickly and easily simplify models with millions of faces.

Balancer nPro is designed to optimize 3D models for

  • 3D printing
  • CAD / CAM
  • architecture
  • any other use that requires metric specified accuracy

Free Versions

In addition to the main version, Balancer has these two variations.

  • Balancer Demo
    is an evaluation version. It is fully functional except for saving.
  • Balancer Lite
    is a free version. It is fully functional but works with small meshes only.
    The limit for a single mesh is 15000 triangles.

    If your entire model is large but has many small independent meshes or layers, you can still use Balancer Lite. Before loading your model, enable Balancer to split the model into independent meshes in Tools | Options | Importers | Wavefront .obj.

    Balancer Lite can be used for non-commercial purposes in non-business, non-commercial environment only.
    Commercially, 30 days evaluation period applies.
