Best way to clean op imported 3D Objects?

Recommended Posts

I've imported some 3D Objects that are set to be used in a project.


However, these objects are made off of 23'000 3D Polys, which makes them impossible to use in a VW file.



Is there a way you can recommend me in order to clean the geometry up and import a clean volume into the project?

I imported the object into a separate blank file to avoid lags.

@Phileas You may be able to select the connected 3D polygons and convert them to a Mesh. Once you have a Mesh object, you can use the Simplify Mesh command to clean it up and make it less complex.

This doesn't really "clean up" anything, but you can turn it into a hybrid symbol so that you only see 2D linework in top/plan, front, side or rear view (and a "cut view" as well) if you have 2019, but the full 3D object in any other view.
