Optimizing vertex count

For those using plines to generate contour or other lines with a high vertex count; did you know there is an express tool that will reduce the number of segments/vertexes for you?

Check out the Express Tool "Overkill", available from the pulldown menu Express>>Modify>>Delete duplicate objects, from the command line by typing "Overkill" or from the command line only by typing "-Overkill".

Under the Lines, Arcs and Plines portion of the dialog box you will find several options such as:

PLINES - Optimize segments within plines

OVERLAP - Combine co-linear objects that partially overlap

END to END - Combine co-linear objects when aligned end to end

happy rendering...
