needing free mesh cleanup tool


Contributing Artist
I need a straight forward way to load a obj, find and delete extra faces and such, I've been told to that some of the obj's Ive made have had two mtl files.. I'm poor so I need something free and easy to use. a clear set of instructios or tutorial is always nice too.
any suggestions?

Two handy freebies to have in your toolbox are UVMapper Classic and STOMP. UVMapper will clean up many malformed OBJs just by loading it and then re-saving. STOMP has options which ought to help with MTL files and other problems.

I don't know about deleting extra faces since 'extra' is a subjective term - how is the program to know you didn't mean to put that face there? It's hard to be specific without knowing more about the problems you're having, but of course you can always ask here. I can look at an example for you if you like.
