I have an enormous .stl file (3GB, 7.7 million polygons, 23 million vertices) of a sculpture that was 3d scanned.
I would like to reduce the number of surfaces so that I can manipulate it in Rhino and prepare it for CNC milling.
What would be the best software/technique for making the file usable?
Techniques tried so far:
- Importing to MeshLab (gives option to simplify vertices, pressing OK causes crash)
- Importing to Rhino and splitting mesh (Windows runs out of memory)
- Importing to ZBrush (error)
Any advice appreciated!
