Trelis 16.5 User Documentation
The automatic small curve removal command uses composites and collapse curves commands to automatically remove small curves from a volume. This is useful for removing small or unnecessary details from a model to facilitate meshing algorithms. The user enters a small curve size. Any curve smaller than this specified size will be removed. This command is issued from the ITEM toolbar. More information can be found by reading the section entitled Small Details in the Model in the ITEM documentation. This command can also be called from the command line. The syntax of this command is:
To remove small curves from a volume
Auto_clean Volume <id_range> Small_curves Small_curve_size <val>
Note: The automatic curve removal should be used with caution, as the user has little control over how curves are removed.
The cylindrical model has 3 small curves just less than 0.7. The remove small curves command will remove two of the small curves by compositing two neighboring surfaces and the third using the collapse curve functionality.
