I often use grabcad etc to get some great free models but sometimes the models are too detailed performancewise, ie if I download too high detail into a big scene everything becomes slow. I was wondering, does anyone know a good method to take a complex model and simplify it? Sometimes it works fine with just make2d, delete a bunch of lines then extract some stuff but I was hoping there could be an easier way. For example, opened this crane, it has 8373 meshes, 90,6k curves and it looks great, but for me it doesnt need to show the bolts, the screws etc, it just to resemble a crane.
Anyone know a good way to do this?
