I have purchased a 3DS spray bottle and imported into Swift 3D ver 5. The problem is it takes ages to move or edit, when I go into advance edit the vertices are in the thousands. How do I reduce the 'quality' of the image to make it usable.

Just learning so be gentle with me.

Cheers

You can do this by doing a controlled smart weld. Set the smart weld tolerance value to something like 2 or 3 (Under selection in the properties panel), right click on your model and then select smart weld. It will reduce the number of polygons for sure but the results may be undesireable. Good luck.
