Command: smoothlines

smoothlines  model-spec  [ stepFactor  fraction ] [ iterations  N ] [ replace  true | false ]

The smoothlines command smooths jagged paths within line-segment models (such as from VTK input) by iteratively moving each vertex a  fraction (default 0.1) of the distance toward the average position of itself and its connected neighbors. A single pass through all of the vertices is one iteration, and the default number of iterations N is 10. Overwriting the original model instead of creating a new model is indicated with replace true (default false)
