Key Features

...

B-Rep simplification

  • Invisible elements removal
  • Small body removal
  • Shrink wrapping
  • Defeaturing: holes, fillets, chamfers and others
...

NURBS geometry simplification

  • NURBS degree reduction
  • NURBS-to-elementary curves and surfaces recognition
...

Mesh decimation

  • Up to 99% mesh size reduction
  • Preserves attributes (normals, colors, UV coordinates)
  • User-controlled process: Target polygon count vs deflection

Develop Faster

Easy to integrate with CAD Exchanger SDK.

ModelData_Model aModel;

... // import from the file

// Set up mesh simplifier
ModelSimplifier_MeshSimplifierParameters aParams;
aParams.SetDegreeOfSimplification (ModelSimplifier_MeshSimplifierParameters::High);

// Running the simplifier
ModelSimplifier_MeshSimplifier aSimplifier;
aSimplifier.SetParameters (aParams);
ModelData_Model aNewModel = aSimplifier.Perform (aModel);
