Can't open a file on rhino 7

I was working a rhino file yesterday and it started crushing. When i forced quit rhino the file was loading for a long time and didn’t open finally. Can anyone help ? I have a macbook pro 2019 and i recently bought it.

Hello - please try typing this command (even though it looks like there is no place to type) while Rhino is trying to open that file:


Does that allow the file to open?

No I typed it and still not opening :confused:

You did press Enter after typing testCloseLoadingWindow?

yes and it looks like it will open but its not

Hi - can you post that file here?

i cant upload it here it says error uploading file

any other way through email or something ? is that possible ?

@fdamianou , you can upload using our uploader: . @wim will get a notification when the upload has completed.

Hi - that file opens fine here on both Windows and Mac. On my old MacBook Air, it takes a bit over 20 minutes to open. On my Windows laptop, it takes a bit under 10 minutes.

The thing with this file is that it is saved with the viewport in a technical display mode. The display meshes for these modes are not saved in the file because it would make files a lot bigger. At any point when you open a file and want to put it in a technical display mode, the display meshes need to be recalculated. You have a few objects in that file that are perforated with lots of holes and it can take a long time to create the display meshes for these.

I have saved the file with all viewports in the wireframe display mode and cleared all display meshes. This should now open fine on your machine. (16.9 MB)

Also, if you ever think a display mode may be the problem you could always _Import the 3dm into an empty, new file. That will skip the technical calculation.

thanks a lot for help
