Rhino 6 keeps hanging when I zoom

Rhino 6 starts up normally. However, when I zoom or move the view port, the whole application hangs.

In addition, it just hangs if I attempt to make any command.

Sounds like a graphic card/driver problem. Can you start Rhino in safe mode without it crashing? Have you tried updating your video drivers?

Hi! Thanks for your reply. I am able to start rhino in safe mode without crashing, and I have already updated my drivers. am running nvidia gtx 1060


this is one of the plug-in load failures when i relaunch rhino 6 normally after a safe launch

Hello - can you please run the SystemInfo command in a Rhino started normally - not Safe Mode - and paste the results here?

Thanks - nothing jumps out at me here - looks good to me.


Thank you! I am launching other graphics intensive programs to see if there are any issues with my graphics card. This computer is almost brand new- a month old, and I replaced my old laptop due to the same exact issue; rhino6 freezing in this manner and my graphics card not running properly.


Please make sure that Windows is fully up to date. It’s possible that it is not, on a new machine.


it definitely is up to date as I have been using rhino very smoothly for almost a month. And I have just updated all my drivers and windows as well.

So Rhino was working OK and then not… I still suspect a Windows thing - there were some tough updates… You might try a clean uninstall and re-install of the GPU driver - I know yours is not old but sometimes a re-install is not a bad thing.
