ReduceMesh command now supports mesh point locking. This allows you to select portions of the mesh that you want to keep intact. If you for example need to keep the boundary edge of the mesh untouched then what you need to do is just to lock all the points along the boundary edges - in fact there is an automated option to lock naked edges.
How to get started:
- Start ReduceMesh command and select your mesh
- Set reduction percentage, 80 is usually a good starting point if you’re unsure how much is needed.
- Click Preview to see what the result would look like.
- Click Add in Locked mesh points section and select the points you would like to keep untouched.
- Click Preview again to see the impact of locking.
- Click Remove to unlock some of the locked points and then Preview again.
- Click OK if you are happy with the result or make further adjustments.
