I am having an issue with a file regularly freezing, it seems partly tied to graphics issues and usually hangs in a perspective view in either a modified arctic view or shaded. The obvious sign that something is not right is that at times the wireframe view shows several objects as shaded, see below. It says it is wireframe, but half of the objects are shaded. Admittedly this particular issue is rare, most of the time it just maxes out my RAM and freezes, but this is the best lead I have towards finding the culprit. The file is about 105mb, I’ve got 16gb of RAM, 4-core 8ghz drive, GTX 1070 GPU.
When this happens it doesn’t use more than 20-30% of either CPU or GPU, but uses about 96% of the RAM. At this point I’m not sure if its a corrupted file, software compatibility issue, or hardware problems. So that narrows it down…
Things I have tried:
Rescue3dmfile: no errors
Audit: some block table errors but otherwise no problem
Export the model to a new file: I’ve exported everything out and re-brought in my levels, detail views, etc. Still having the issues.
Device Manager: Checked the Drives and GPU, everything seems to be working properly.
Hard Drive Space: I made sure there is plenty of space.
Dusted the inside of the machine: I figured a little cleanliness couldn’t hurt.
Plugins: Actively using Visualarq, Twinmotion is installed but not actively being used. Vray was installed a week or so ago but I uninstalled it for the time being.
Any insight would be appreciated.
