File with blocks is freezing/sticking

Hi there.

I’m running Rhino 7 (7.9.21222.15002) on my Macbok Pro - M1 16MB Big Sur.

I have a drawing that contains 300 blocks and the overall file size is currently 140mb. It is constantly sticking and/or running very slow in either wire frame or rendered.

Is there anything I can or should be doing to get this to run better?

Thank you.

Hi Chris - the first thing to do is update to the current service release, sr-11 and see if that makes any difference.

Hi Pascal.

Thank you for the link for the new release. I’ve downloaded and keep receiving this message: “the operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access “Rhino 7”.”

It also appears to have deleted my current version of Rhino 7.

Any idea why I am getting this message?

Hello - please reainstall the previous version and run the SystemInfo command and copy/paste the entire output here.

I’m not able to download a previous version as Rhino 6 is not supported. I am however able to open Rhino 7 by over riding my system security. However I can not save the application to my hard drive.

Below the system info requested. I look forward to your help with a solution.

@John_Brock - any idea about why this might be failing?

-Pascal

Maybe this is the same problem:

Yep, looks like that…

-Pascal

Sadly, it looks like a rights issue and Apple is recommending reimaging the system.
I thought this sort of thing never happened on Macs…

I would recommend doing two things first:

If those two things do not work, please attempt to copy the Rhino 7.app to your Desktop (drag it to your Desktop instead of the Applications folder) and see if it is allowed to be copied there.

Hi Dan.

Appreciate the help and ideas. I have tried all three in order and unfortunately I’m still having the same error message.

“the operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access “Rhino 7”

I’m now starting to think this has something to do with the fact I have not been able to upgrade my version. Every time I tried I got an error message after the upgrade downloaded. That is in line to the protocol here.

Anyone have any other suggestions to get the latest Rhino 7 for mac to work?

Thank you.

Chris
