Reduce Mesh cannot work on this object- any ideas?

Recommended Posts

HI ,

 

I'd like to see if I can lighten this object up in Mesh reduce, but although it is a single object (separate toll does nothing), i get a message saying,

 

"One or more objects selected for Reduce Mesh operation are surface solids, or partial surface solids. these objects need to be converted to single sided first."

 

But I don't know how. The convert tool is operational on this object.

 

Thanks for any ideas-

 

Peter

I assume that you have used the object doctor on it.  I would also try the unmesh tool first and then I would try slicing the object into parts and then trying to reduce the mesh.  If that works you could then stitch it back together. Just an idea.  In my studio I keep around an old copy of 3ds Max 2012 and that program can usually reduce meshes that Form.z chokes on.
