Print Problem Rhino 6

Hi everyone,

I have recently been having problems trying to print my layouts. Every time I try to print the layout Rhino crashes. I had reinstalled Rhino and Adobe PDF (which I use as my printer) and it worked for a short time, but now Rhino is crashing again when I try to print. I have tried other PDF printers as well, but currently none of them work, Rhino crashes every time. Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance!
Best regards,
Julius

Hi Julius -

Ideally, you’d be using the Rhino PDF printer.
At any rate, crashes related to printing most likely boil down to issues with the GPU drivers. You might have updated Windows recently and that can have done something with those drivers.
Please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here.

Thanks for the quick reply! That makes sense, I’ll try it again with Rhino PDF printer.
