Help asked for heavy IGES file from laser scanner


New member
I am looking for some help with some IGES files that contain objects from a laserscanner.

The objects refined in geomagic and then exported to IGES. Unfortunately the files are 150-200 MB each and way too heavy to control them in Rhino.

The objects are scanned Bamboo brenches that I have to model into a fence.

Does anybody know how to get the files smaller without losing too much detail!?

thnx in advance!
