Trelis 16.4 User Documentation
This auto clean command will attempt to remove small and narrow surfaces from the model by compositing them with neighboring surfaces. The user specifies a small curve size value. This value is used in two different ways. First, a small area is calculated as the small curve size squared. This value is used to compare against when looking for small surfaces. The small curve size is also used to identify surfaces that are narrower than the small curve size.

The cylindrical model has 2 small surfaces and a few narrow surfaces. The surfaces are composited to remove these.
