Hey,

just wanted to report some crashes, that happens to me in the version from Jan-23-18. I have mid heavy scene with a roboter character  im working on. Crashes happens on different tasks, after 5-10 min randomly , so i cant unfortunately precise the reason why they happens. Sometimes before crash it shows me a warning message( with some information), if i click next it crashes to desktop.
I switched to the previews official version from Dec-21-17, and don't have crashes so far.
thanks

Nvil closes after clicking "next", and im not able to save. So im trying to save very often during work, so i don't lost to much work if it happens.

When it happened, what tool were you using or what tool you had just used?

I will try to remember the last move. I work a lot with hotkeys, sometimes it run so fast between actions so a cant remember,but i will try to do as next.

For the first feel it crashes randomly, one it was when i was using generic tools>> Tweak_Move' or Generic Tools>> Axis_ Move* but not 100 percent sure. By the way i use a lot the Instances( to mirror meshes on other side). Basically most of the meshes have one Instance..( i love this workflow).

It could be also Extrude ( Polygon_Extrude_PolygonNormal*#), i can remember i had one crash on extrude. But again i tried extrude 20 times now and it don't crash.

As soon as i get clear answer i will write back.

A lot of time it crashes/closes without warning too..Its like Russian roulette. :)

Ah and one i had right now. I  was working on a part of the character, i selected one mesh, click
"Common Modeling Shortcut Tools > Hide Unselected" to hide the other meshes. Then i was deleting couple of polygons, then
"Common Modeling Shortcut Tools> Unhide" to unhide everything back >>> Crash.. Nvil was closed, but no warning message...
But the problem i cant reproduce it, even if i do the same it does not crashes.

I suspect it is memory related.
How heavy was your scene? How many undo levels set?

Objects 482
Meshes 481
Polys 133,249
Faces 255,956

Oh yes the undo was set to 500, thats way to much. I never go so far back. Thanks i will decrease it.Maybe that was the reason with hide-unhide crash. But they are really rare.

But what is strange that i don't have crashes with the Dec-21 version. Maybe this is something different.  I will test it further with new undo setting. And report back.

Thanks!

Try hiding all instances and work in this way for a while and see if it still crashes.
