I have imported large model from Revit - actually exported it from Revit as SKP using Simlab exporter.
Model looks really fine in SU (no missing faces, textures in place etc.) but - every single group and component has all of its edges: smooth/softened and duplicated. Each face has got its own boundary edges. There are literally 2 edges on every edge (on top of each other).
CleanUp3 can’t deal with it as it only deletes duplicate faces and not duplicate edges.
Only solution I’ve found so fsr is to get down to raw geometry of each group / component, unsmooth all edges, then group raw geometry and explode it - this causes duplicate edges to merge/glue and as this model is otherwise very clean - this produces solid group/component in 99 percent of cases.
Please help - as i need to make such modification to every single group and component in model (4 levels of nested objects) and literally thousands of groups/components.
Even getting to inside all groups/components would be tiresome, no to mention above modifications.
Is there a tool that would go through all groups/components and unsmooth all edges? This is vital as when you group and explode unsmoothed geometry, you end up with smooth object, and you have to unsmooth it otherwise (model is very angular - i don’t mind smoothing all curves afterwards by hand). Of course a tool that can add specific smoothing angle value (slider) would be most welcome.
Is there a tool that can go through all model and weld/glue all duplicated edges?
I have spent full day on forums and found nothing.
Thank You all for a method of automating this chore.
