I cut all my windows and doors out after removing the smoothing
from both parts before doing the boolen with cut and refine. Then converted
to an edible mesh. Welded any uncommon points to ones that were proper for my
cutter then detached the window polys from the fuselage. Granted, it is not
perfect but there was very little cleanup work afterwards. Also I cut each opening
one at a time. rather than creating one large part as a cutter. My poly count
for the exterior right now is at 26393 and 10029 for the interior model which
are modeled in 2 completely separate gWax files then combined at compile time.
It compiles to a file size just under 2 megs. I still am getting decent frame
