3D Window Error ?

Recommended Posts

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

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
