advanced rendering for AutoCAD
It seems to be isolated to a single drawing model. I have tried copying the whole model to a fresh drawing to no avail.
It gives you a message from the walkabout window that you are trying to access protected memory. Sometimes you can close the dialog box sometimes not. If you do get it to close and exit the walkabout back to the Acad window it will crash in about ten to fifteen seconds.
Windows says files that relate to the problem are WERB48F.tmp, WEFInternalMetdata.xml, WERECFD.tmp, WERF1BO.tmp. (All French to me)
When I go and look at the file in the explorer it seems to be very bloated by the file size. (49Meg)
You can try all of the standard stuff, such as audit, to see if that makes a difference.
Send it to me otherwise, I'll take a look. It's possible that it's failing in AutoCAD which might make it challenging to fix.
it has been discussed elsewhere - it is usually caused by 3DOrbit command that sort of hangs...
try CMDACTIVE to find, if a command is active (=1)
try CMDNAMES to find what command is it.
try to SAVE from command prompt, then QUIT
...from what I read elsewhere this error is not drawing specific
Tried your suggestion. The command line just keeps returning to "F&B Base.dwg has a command in progress."
Hit enter to cancel or [retry]
It is just one drawing giving me fits.
I was able to get it to render directly from the acad window with no difficulty.
This is a model I generated about five years ago and another designer has updated the model since and turned it back over to me for this project. It's got two major elements in it (kiosk models). I am going to try and delete one of them and see if I can find an offending acad entity.
Not causing me any grief right now but I'm going to want to solve it so I can continue to use this model in other projects.
I forwarded a copy of the model.
I deleted everything from the model except the smaller kiosk and it still hangs and crashes.
No problems so far. I did the following:
Everything is proceeded normally. Is there something else I should try?
