I am new to sketchup. Last 30 days it worked perfectly, but today suddenly i am not able to import furniture to my architectural project. I have tried everything - restart, unistallation and reinstallation etc, but nothing works. When importing, then it downloads the item, but then crashes.
I tried to purge unused components, but even then sketchup crashed. Is there anything else i can do? Any suggestions?
If SketchUp was crashing with Bug Splats you would be asked to send in the report and could add your name and/or e-mail address. If you aren’t getting splats, you would have the option to send in a report.
Looks like you are using a lot of content from the 3D Warehouse and much of it looks like it could stand to be cleaned before being added to your project. It’s always a good idea to download components from the 3DWH to a separate file, clean them up and then add them to your project.
I cannot thank you enough! Spent almost half of my day to find out, what the hell is going on there :'D
Still funny that i wasn’t able to purge the file. Now i am going to do it once in a while just in case.
Thank you for the recommendations about reversed faces and ungrouped geometry - will read more about it right away! Also I didn’t know about the need of cleaning the content, but will do it in the future and saving components to a separate files
I got your model. It is already quite “heavy”, Model Info->statistics shows almost a million edges. About 2/3 of those come from just four things you no doubt downloaded from the 3D Warehouse:
Group#1348 (curtains) contains 196,934 edges
Group#990 (grill, sink, and counter) contains 142,175 edges
Vase_Flowers_22 contains 115,325 edges
Extemporare standard table… contains 104,003 edges
This is why we always advise that you download from the warehouse into a separate model and examine the download for issues such as size and excessive detail, and either editto simplify or choose some other model, before placing it in your production model.
As @DaveR found, I also had no problem purging unused item from your model though it took a long time. I agree that likely you have simply overwhelmed your computer with this model.
Edit: I also noticed that you are not using tags appropriately in your model. All edges and faces should remain untagged; only groups and components should use tags. Tags do not prevent edges and faces from interacting with each other, even when set non-visible, and that can lead to strange and frustrating errors.
In your cleaned file all the materials are gone or invisible. Should i add materials separately or is there any easier option for that? Are materials/ colors gone or somehow hidden?
I understand that I will need to see plenty of tutorials about how to avoid making my file as big as it was before and probably i will get my answer from there, but if not then asking just in case
