Are you looking for the cleanupGeometry operation ? It is in the CGA Shape Grammar Reference section of the help document.

Thanks but not exactly Im looking for documentation on how the Distance and Angle threshholds are used by each of the tools included in cleanup shapes and how one is supposed to determine the appriate values for a give dataset. cureently it just tells you what the tools do and that the user input values are for not how to choose them or best practices for choosing them.

Do you know if the operator works on dae only or will it also run on multipatches. I cant bring in my COLLADA model due to some sort of Operating System error, I have a ticket open for it so hopefully soon.
