Reducing model complexity?

Post by labman » Fri Sep 04, 2020 2:53 pm

Hi, we're using composer to preview complex CAD of our products to show customers. We import solidworks files directly, and then display them on either a HTC Vive or an Oculus quest. The issue we have is the models are causing the frame rate to drop appreciably in composer and on the vive, while the quest struggles to even open the files. Is there anywhere in composer where we could reduce the poly count of models? or possibly hide ones which are a certain distance from the user etc?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi.. Try Merge on Materials.. Right mouse on the Parent.. It will dramatically reduce the file size..

There are other ways to reduce the file size but this is by far the quickest.

Tesselaar.
