Thank You, Arianna,. . . 32GB should be more than enough.
I haven’t seen a lot of out of memory topics on this forum… I was worried that maybe you were trying to run Rhino on an older budget model computer that had minimal resources built into it.
As it stands now, My best guess is to take this error message at face value… and assume it’s about what it says its about… BUT, I think I’d add in an extra bit of interpretation to it…
While Rhino might be saying it has no memory… It’s worth considering the role Windows plays here too… because Windows is in charge of ‘allocating’ how much memory each program gets to use. And maybe, something happened that caused Windows to bump Rhino into a value that it shouldn’t be running in… hence the error message.
To check if this line of reasoning is going along the right path… I think it would be good to see what the Task Manager has to report.
Try Shutting Down Rhino, then Open up the windows task manager, and restart Rhino.
And let’s copy the process in Method One on this webpage that discusses how to allocate RAM to Windows programs.
The whole point of this check is to see if you can notice an obvious bottleneck… where the values and priority are set really Low. And you don’t need to get into methods 2 and 3. Method One should be good enough to indicate if things are off track in the memory allocation idea.
