Simplified Truss Symbols

Alex Bridge

Recommended Posts

Just wanting to go through our companies symbol file and simplify  all of our truss symbols to reduce the polygons on the file. Does anyone have any trick for this? I've attempted to redraw the 3D model with extruding circles and hexagons, But It seems to have more lines in the symbol then what the original did.

Extrudes should be fairly light weight, and unlike meshes, render with surfaces instead of polygons. Converting to generic solids also greatly speeds up rendering of curved surfaces. 

You may be seeing creases and not polygons. Increasing your smoothing angle in both OpenGL and hidden line settings will help this.
