I’ve been having problems with editing this SketchUp file. It crasshes when I try to explode, scale or draw within it’s grouped content. I intend to use the CurviLoft extension to fold this pattern into a cylinder shape.
Work has set me up with a new pc so I have no idea where exactly the problem is.
I’ll update my pc specs on my profile but here’s a list for now:
HP Z Workstation
Windows 10 Pro (Version 21H2)
Sketchup 2022 Pro (latest version, 64-bit)
Intel i7-10700 2.90GHz CPU
Nvidea T1000 (4GB, up to date drivers)
I’ll also attach the file I’m trying to work with.
Does anyone have any idea why Sketchup keeps crashing when I touch the group?
I am trying to use this plugin but it renders my pc almost non-responsive, it doesn’t crash though… Yet I don’t think this is the solution I’m looking for, I suspect it’s hardware related?
EDIT: it seems your solution works but I still find it strange I have to use these steps in order to work with the file at all… I doubt things will go smoothly when I try to bend this shape around a cylinder…
That is not a lot of memory by contemporary standards. You might run Task Manager and monitor how much memory is free while running this operation in SketchUp. If memory becomes mostly full, try exiting out of other applications in order to allow SketchUp to access more memory.
Program is slow, takes a while to see the red shape you mentioned. When I press enter or left click > commit it takes a second to crash the program. About half of the attempts resulted in a bugsplat, otherwise just a crash to desktop.
I wonder if some other extension is monitoring the editing session within SketchUp (via observers, for example) and is causing the crash. You might try using the Extension Manager window to disable all extensions (or all except the one or two you are using during the action in question), exit and restart SketchUp, and try the operation again.
