I want to reduce the file size of a OBJ or STL file that is exported from the David scanner. I know you can reduce the file size on export by using the percentage reduction but you lose the detail of the scan.
I have tried meshmixer to reduce size but no real success.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

OBJ file also have a texture as information, so removing a texture will reduce a file size. That will probably be a tiny difference. both formats OBJ and STL are having a vertex coordinates so you can´t reduce a size while not changing geometry. Only way to do that is reverse engineering to CAD format.
Here you can check reducing process with Meshmixer: https://i.materialise.com/blog/reduce-the-file-size-of-stl-and-obj-3d-models/
