As an interior designer and interior design visualizer, I import a lot of “heavy” furniture models from the 3D Warehouse to fill a model of a house or apartment. I need to choose furniture based on style and often nicely styled furniture models have a lot of polygons. My computer is 8 years old and sometimes my models get so slow they are unusable. Skimp helps to keep my model size down and my models usable. I also appreciate that Skimp is intuitive and that there is a simple user interface. It is actually enjoyable to use. I need to work quickly and the simplicity of the user interface helps! Thank you for this useful plugin. (Sue Miller Interior Designer)
