Among other things, the collapseEdges utility removes faces with area < areaFactor * maxFaceArea, where maxFaceArea is the area of the largest face of the model, and areaFactor is hard-coded to 1e-9.
I happen to run cases where there is a very large difference in size between smallest and largest cells. When working with 2D wedge geometries, I need collapseEdges to clean up after Bernhard's excellent makeAxialMesh utility. In some cases the hard-coded value for areaFactor is to large, and thousands of perfectly healthy faces are marked for removal...
I here humbly contribute a modified version, collapseEdgesBetter, in which the option -areaFactor can be used to set a sound value. If missing, the hard-coded value 1e-9 is used as default.
