Polyreduce & multi million poly CAD files


Tasked with working with some VERY high poly count CAD files, several million polys easily. heard great things about the updated poly reduce node in H16.

Should I even attempt to reduce poly count in Houdini, or is another tool better suited to this?

Go ahead and give it a try. I did not realize poly reduce had been revised. The previous version seemed to be a single-core process and ran slow. If you have groups, in your CAD file you may want to isolate them into vertical paths in the Houdini network view. Then you can apply a poly reduce on only a portion of the model to see how effective it is.
