    I have a 3D scan (.stl file) of an object and I want to built a case around it, now if I reduce the number of faces of an STL file (using MeshLab) so as to open it in SolidWorks, will it affect the model's original dimensions?

      I have to scan an object using Blue Light Scanning technology, and I want to create a case around it using SolidWorks (in my college computer), the file which I will receive will be in STL format, I researched about stl files and found a way of reducing the number of faces using MeshLab so as to open it in SolidWorks as a part, now I am worried if reducing the number of faces will affect the original dimension of the object
