Well, this sentence above was probably the most unpopular on the net in the past. But even today have also many user not the fastest Internet connection too, even if there’s a radiate 5G network coming soon, that will probably goes more to the people’s heads than in there hardware.

It is therefore certainly a good thing to keep data for Images, Video and also 3D-Models as small as possible in order to keep loading times short. Less than 10 MB is here a good value, but some 3D-Models are so complex that they can have more than 100 MB, which is really “heavy” and can also not be processed by every browser.

So, let’s make the Models a little “lighter”

Many complex 3D-Models can be reduced in their data volume without compromising the optical quality and the free 3D program Blender has an ingenious function for this, the “Decimate Modifier”. How to work with it, show we in this little tutorial:

The result: Lighter, Smaller, Faster

With that decimate modifier tool from Blender have we for the canvasio3d pro example the Model: “Duesen Bayern Mystar 190 SL” made by desmonster from 90.8 MB (obj file format) to little 27.5 MB (glb file format) diminished.
