Apply Merge Distance

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Apply Merge Distance menu item is a form of data reduction, allowing the user to merge geometry points that are too close together into a single point. This action  is supported for meshes, polygons, polylines, regions and scatter data. Using the command on grids has no effect.


This is an in-place operation; existing geometry will be updated and no new geometry will be added.


When applying a merge, a distance value must be supplied. The minimum possible value is 0.001, the smallest resolution supported by SVDESIGNER and SVOFFICE.
