That will equalize edges but destroy the sharp edges you get in CAD data
- its great for organic stuff but not so good for girders!

Simon Barrick showed me this trick: Ignore the UI and turn up Equalize
Edges to 100 or higher.
Also, try Prevent Mesh Inversion OFF, make sure Prevent Cracking and Use
Original Points are turned ON
I get very good results, always using the above.
The Equalize Edges slider having 0-1 range tricked me for years until
Simon showed me "oh, just make it really high" and suddenly, Polyreduce
became very very good.
SESI: RFE: Get that slider a 0-500 range :)
