Simplygon is one of the most versatile and powerful tools for optimization of polygon based 3d models, including high quality polygon reduction and polygon repair features.
With the help of Simplygon you can greatly enhance the performance of your real-time or off-line 3d applications.
Use Simplygon during computer-game development to automatically create level of details and speed up run-time application, or optimize your 3d models for AI/physics engines.
Use Simplygon to optimize advanced CAD models for simulation or visualization purposes, or use it to speed up your ray tracing, without loss of visual quality.
No matter what your professional cause is, Simplygon helps you to cut production time & cost and to increase the quality of your work.
Polygon Reduction is a major part of LOD and the main purpose of Simplygon. By reducing the amount of polygons in a 3d model, the models wheigh less, thus you save memory while keeping the quality. By adding features like Border Detection and Welding, Simplygon assures you the best reduction possible. Reducing models in Simplygon is done instantly and gives you a very good result.
The Split-Screen feature of Simplygon allows the user to compare the original model with the reduced. In game production this is a very appreciated feature, since after you have reduced an object you can zoom out and see when the object is similar to the original, which gives higher graphics excellence to a game.
Layers displays each independent sub object with a unique color.
Welding prepares models for the best reduction result by merging some polygons. Unless these polygons are welded/merged the quality of the model will decrease, once reduced.
T-junction Removal prepares models for the best reduction result.
Border Detection is used to analyze detected borders in a 3d object. By detecting these borders Simplygon does not reduce away the main features in a model which could otherwise decrease its quality.
