About the Facets Phase
When you bring a model into the Facets phase, you can remove the internal structures and edit the model with a variety of commands to refine and perfect the faceted surface.
Most of the commands in this phase change the coordinates of the existing points or add new points. Therefore, the faceted geometry differs from the original point set.
If you must retain the original point set, do not use the editing operations in the Facets phase.
