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?

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
