Rhino 7 Crash with Climate Studio GH simulation


I have a problem induced by Climate Studio simulations. Each time I try a simulation, even a ‘light’ one with very low resolution, Rhino crashes. Yes my units are in m and not mm, and my resolution of my analysis grid is set to 2m. This is likely an issue with Climate Studio GH plugin specifically, since I can use it in Rhino and the crash ONLY occurs when I run a simulation from GH.

Please help!

Here’s my SystemInfo from Rhino post-crash:

Hello - I would contact the developer of that plug-in directly. In the meantime, your video drivers are quite old, I would update those to the latest available from the AMD website.


Trying to contact them, unfortunately they’re not the most responsive. I’ll try the driver update for AMD, thanks!

Also update your Rhino version. You’re still on Rhino 7.1, current service release is Rhino 7.6 (fixes made: Rhino 7 Service Release Available - #10 by brian, see the entire thread for all changes since your service release ).
