It's not shown in the video, but there is an option in the Poly Reduce node to keep Quads and it does a marvelous job keeping intact the original shape decreasing geometry in the areas whereis not needed. Unfortunately the Poly Reduce node only keeps quads if the input mesh is already quad based. In order to get quads from non quad geometries you need to try the Voxel node.

can stop posting this kind of low-quality 'showcase' articles? If I wanna find showcase/reel, I can find them easily on Viemo, cgsociety. Everyone know houdini can be used to do destruction, simulation, etc. there is no need to show another destruction unless posting a helpful 'tutorial'. However, this is not.

Can it produce quads, too?

Sketchfab Announces MASSIVE
14 August, 2018

August 14th, 2018 SIGGRAPH 2018, Vancouver, Canada: In its ongoing initiative to bring any and all 3D content to the web, Sketchfab, in collaboration with Iconem and CNRS, has unveiled a brand new approach to supporting much larger datasets in its embeddable 3D viewer. The new product, MASSIVE by Sketchfab, is an alpha version for now, with many improvements in progress.

MASSIVE uses a combination of data streaming and automated Level of Detail (LOD) mesh processing to make it possible to browse much larger 3D models in a browser. The technology currently supports OBJ and PLY datasets and – within reasonable storage limitations – there is no size limit on the data set that can be displayed.

Sketchfab unveiled MASSIVE by sharing examples of aerial scanned data and archaeological dig sites from Sketchfab community members Gerpho, Pix4d, and the DigiArt consortium. Initial examples show datasets of over 80 million triangles effortlessly streamed into a browser window.

The current version of MASSIVE also supports vertex color with optimized streaming texture support coming soon along with further optimization for low-powered devices and slower connection speeds.

MASSIVE is currently scheduled for a full release in 2019 and organizations that can both benefit from the technology and inform its feature set are encouraged to contact the team at
