Polygon Reducer retains quality of original 3D models.
January 6, 2009 -
VizUp v3.2.5 Ultimate helps balance necessary detail from large 3D models, converted from CAD/CAM/CAE, with file size compact enough to let users download it within reasonable timeframe. Users have option to not set any parameters manually, in which case software automatically picks those that are most suitable. Polygon-reduced models saved in VIZUP file format retain relevant reduction information, allowing users to revisit files later if different reductions are needed.

Compressed 3D Models Still Look Great with VizUp 3!
VizUp unveils a polygon reducer that balances detail and file size to simplify very large 3D models that have been converted from CAD/CAM/CAE.
VANCOUVER, Canada. - December 23, 2008: VizUp Inc. today announces the unveiling of VizUp 3.2.5 Ultimate. VizUp helps you achieve an optimal balance between maintaining the necessary detail in a model and a file size that is sufficiently compact that users can download it in a reasonable amount of time.
You have an option not to set any parameters manually, in which case VizUp will automatically pick the most suitable ones for your particular model. You can save polygon-reduced models in the VIZUP file format, which retains the relevant reduction information so you can revisit the file later if you need a different reduction percentage for another purpose; you don't have to convert the model again unless the original has changed. The process of optimization results in the deletion of some vertices, but it does not change the coordinates of the remaining vertices, resulting in minimal distortions during texture mapping.
