What does "Mesh Optimization" feature do?

Unlike other post-process functions which only do a single operation, “Mesh Optimization” smoothens and sharpens the results, eliminating surface noise while keeping sharp details. You can choose the operation intensity from 0 to 100%. And you can do multiple iterations if you are not satisfied with the current outcome.


This function performs well when the original data has a small point distance. For example, here’s a part of the tires scanned with 0.2mm resolution.


From left to right are original data / 20% / 50%/ 100% optimization.



You can see that surface noise was well removed under 100% optimization while keeping the edges of the letters sharp.


However, the details are already blurred on a large point distance model. Using high optimization intensity will cause detail loss. Here is an example:

Same intensity from left to right while the resolution is 1mm. You can tell that the details on feathers are hard to recognize with 100% optimization.

This function will make it possible to achieve improved results in a simpler way, we suggest using higher intensities for high-resolution scans and lower intensities when scanning in low resolution. We do not recommend applying mesh optimization in cases where the resolution is over 1mm.
