CuraEngine.exe has stopped working

Recommended Posts

Well - not what you asked - but you could reduce the polygons by a factor of 2X or 100X potentially without any reduction in resolution (resolution after printed). I love using meshlab:

Click on menu item: "filters" "remeshing..." "quadratic edge collapse decimation". I set quality to 1 as recommended in a shapeways article about this subject.

I had a model of a human with over 10 million polygons but I wanted to print it only .5 inches high. I reduced the polygon count to 10K polygons and it was still more than I needed. After reduction Cura handled it nicely (before reduction Cura had issues).

Most likely it's a memory related issue, the released version abuses memory a bit. Can you see if the version from the new support material test also gives you this problem with the same models&settings?
