3do file size?
Posted 27 August 2020 - 10:00 AM
The .3dp file is about 7kb, and the 3do is about 58kb.
Previous 3dos I've made have file sizes slightly larger -- maybe 30% to 50% larger -- than the 3dp file. It just seems strange that this one is so much bigger. (And I'm going to have 4 similar stands, so I'd rather not have the file sizes keep balooning).
I have removed duplicate vertices and have only 4 or 5 textures.
Let me know if there are any tips for reducing this bloat.

12kb 3dp - 109kb 3do
10kb 3dp - 26kb 3do
8kb 3dp - 16kb 3do

Would there be any difference between one polygon that crosses another, and splitting a polygon into two -- one on either side?
There's a lot of polygon crossing in this stand. I could build it with polygons that don't cross, but worry that it might end up being almost as large.
The grandstand is a repeating structure, 10 identical sections (well, nearly identical.) A 3do of just the first section is 5.69kb; so 10 of those would be the same size as my 3do now... the middle 8 sections would be a little bit smaller, so it might not be 10x as large, but it would get pretty close. I'll experiment a little.

The 3dp is now something like 36kb, a huge increase. But the 3do is down to about 45kb, which is pretty good. There are one or 2 changes I want to make, but that's an improvement.
