Recommended Posts

Posted · 3D Window Error ?

Hi Everyone

For the first time tonight, I am receiving this error whilst trying to load a model into Cura. It`s a large .stl file.

cure window error

Is there anything I can do to conquer this?

Is there are maximum stl file size that cura accepts?

Maybe I need more RAM lol

I think he means megabytes in triple digits, so maybe a few hundred. :arrow:

Hey guys, the .STL was sent to me by somebody else...it is 190Mb :eek: !

I have emailed asking to send me a step file so I can convert to .STL myself.

My laptop runs CREO, KEYSHOT and CURA pretty well... its a dell XPS 17 with dedicated graphics and 8GB RAM ( I sinstalled 16GB, but it didn't like it ) lol.

Okay, 190 MB is huge. I guess that's the problem here ;)

It's definetly not a hardware issue, but I doubt Cura even uses hardware acceleration (or does it?)

It does, but, the implementation is not perfect. Which is why it crashes at a certain amount of polygons.

I have received the step file of the part, so I will try again when I am back home later and see if a smaller .stl does the trick.
