This paper presents an improved method for optimizing the singularity structure of hexahedral meshes using various dual operations. Our approach aims at reducing element distortion by decomposing complex singular nodes into singular curves using high-quality sheet insertion at proper locations. Then, singular curves that meet the topological parallel requirements are paired to perform the semantic column operation, which eliminates the singular curves. Finally, the topological structure is further optimized by collapsing sheets, resulting in a valid hex-mesh with a simpler structure. Compared to existing hexahedral mesh simplification methods, our approach can generate higher quality meshes. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
