Mesh simplification become an interesting research within last twenty decades. There are new methodologies and also some modification or improvements that have been introduced by some researchers. However, there are three major problems that exist after the mesh simplification is applied on the model. The model has tendency to loss some of information, shape and also its features. In this study, we present an algorithm of triangular mesh simplification. In our algorithm we proposed a new decimation metrics which is ratio to select elements as the candidate to be removed. The experiment results show our proposed algorithm can preserve the shape of the mesh.
