Hey! I already have PDMs of my shapes available with very nice correspondences, but they contain a lot (20000+) of particles which can be a problem for future use because calculation can become heavy. I can only use for example 1/10 of this amount to represent the shape, but then the distribution over the surfaces is less good, as it is hard to say which of the original particles I should keep for usage. Hence, I was wondering if there is a way of doing only the optimization step without running the initizalitation step? In this way I can use the original PDMs and take for example 1/10 of the original particles to initialize them, but then optimize it so that the distribution is improved.

I hope this question is clear. Thanks in advance!
