Latest Rhino 6 crashes every time I open the Named Views panel

Hello, after updating Rhino 6 to the latest version, the program now freezes whenever I open the Named Views panel. I’ve tried disabling V-Ray, which is also up to date. Any help or a fix would be appreciated.

Hello - can you please try disabling VRay in Options > Plug-ins page and then restart Rhino - does it behave better?


Thanks Pascal. That helped me get to the solution. I had a Named View that was saved with the “Rendered” view style active. I guess it was trying to render the thumbnail and just hung instead. I’ve re-saved the view with the “Shaded” style activated.

Hm… obviously that should not happen… I’ll try to reproduce this. You were using the built-in ‘Rendered’ display mode, correct?


I’m having the same issue , Rhino just cannot open the named views panel. Any help will be appreciated.

Hello - please run SystemInfo in Rhino and post the results here.


I am having the same issue. I disabled V-ray and it still crushes every time I try to use named view. I tried to use the wire frame vie and it still crushes.

Hi - please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and post the results here.
