Hello Barend,

Thank you for your reply.

What we noticed is that, if a point exceeds the max_distance in Z direction, but within the max_distance in x and y, it is still removing that point.

Do you have a example where it works in the z direction too?

Thank you for your help,

Yes, the simplify algorithm can also simplify a 3D line.
