reduceGeometry operation

Syntax

reduceGeometry(tolerance)

Parameters

Description

The reduceGeometry operation simplifies the geometry by applying a series of edge collapses.

This operation changes the appearance of the model. The algorithm tries to reduce the complexity of the mesh by introducing the least possible delta to the appearance of the existing model.

The operation removes all component tags from the geometry.
