I am sent an igs file, 127,042Kb I launch Rhino, go new file, file import, in it comes…command line above there says importing iges entity and the number is increasing with an apparent target of 21363…that stops, it now says
imported 650 entities, nothing on screen as yet, Rhino simply vanishes. try again and get Window is out of memory and Rhino will close after you click OK. You should restart your computer after Rhino exits. I Reboot PC and same issue.
I visit McNeel website, run the task manager, though the instruction on how to do it misses out one vital step, making me think my task manager has lost its options (should say click processes tab, then go view Select Columns ! if you dont do this the view option is missing) and watch as the memory reaches 1,800,000k and bang rhino vanishes. McNeel article says when it approaches 1,800,000K you know that there’s not much virtual memory left.
Windows XP 32bit has a 2gb limit. I have a purpose built PC for Rhino and cant open this file. Now what ?
As this is my first job for my new employer and venture in life, its embarrasing ! Last time I used Rhino for a paid job (1st and last time in fact) the iges file they wanted lost the dimensions data, a weakness of rhino I was told and iges apparently. Just not sure what I have bought at times. Use it in a serious job and get issues.
What is the solution to opening this file ?
I also have a wrp. file 898,966Kb is that something I open separately or does it get used with an .igs file
With it near 1Gb file size I can imagine what will happen !!!
