If you've tried to move a complex 3D model into a form for virtual reality use or for real-time visualization applications on the Web, your efforts probably resulted in a file that was really too big and too detailed for the repurposing you had in mind. The complex operation of polygon reduction may feel daunting, but VizUp simplifies and speeds up the process with aplomb.

The VizUp polygon reducer 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.  Read more >>p>
