Mesh decompression is a simple process. Simply choose this option
from the menu. The program will then prompt for the name of the compressed
file. You must enter the full name
of the compressed file (including the .com extension). Once entered, it decompresses the named file, and then it asks what you would like the result to be saved as. It should be noted
that after decompression, the current file is then thrown away, and the decompressed result is shown, which replaces any original file. Also, during decompression, one must
have the original model which was compressed as the current model, so that the error measurements come out correct. An example of a decompression process is shown below, with
the original file called compressed_model.com, and the result saved as fan1.dat.
