Suggestions on decreasing offset point count

Is there a way/setting that I could use to decrease the overall point count of an offset I make.

Hi, you could try SimplifyCrv to reduce the point count on the original curve before offsetting.

The number of points are required to meet the file tolerance at the time of the Offset.

  • You can make the file tolerance more forgiving before the Offset.
  • If you don’t care how closely it fits the original curve, you can use the Simple option in the command so the new curve has the same number of control points as the original.
  • Use the SimplifyCrv command as suggested above to find middle ground.

All options involve compromise.
You get to choose.

Hello - use the Loose option and see if that is accurate enough, otherwise, increase the tolerance until you find the right balance.
