i have a mesh scan of the front of a house imported into rhino 7, it is 289mb and 8,114,715 polygons…
it has the colors mapped on it so it looks like the front of the house in rhino 7.
i want to design some new features to the house with the scan in the background however it seems slow in rhino 7 even though I got a high-specked laptop running: 11th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i9-11950H @ 2.60GHz 2.61 GHz with 128 GB of ram…
what is the best way to design like this?
- do I just put up with any lag
- do I try to resize the mesh and if so can I keep the colour map still looking like the actual house? (like the iPhone scans they look great until you look at the mesh )
or is there any other techniques?
Basically, once I have sized the scan and created some datums / working planes then the mesh can be reduced to whatever as long as the image of the house still looks original as once I start working of the new datum points and planes then the house will only be there for visual reference and also for the client to see the finished work in a realistic way.
