I’ve been desperately trying to solve a problem that is perplexing; Blender has been crashing every time I try to bake a fluid simulation which is just a fluid object, 2 obstacles and a domain box. For some reason when I remove the container the fluid is to sit in, the bake completes… But I have re-made the container (obstacle) three times thinking there was a problem with the normals, overlapping vertices or any number of other mistakes, there is no obvious reason to me why this is happening. At this point I am desperate to solve this issue, so below is the error message from the failed bakes. I’ll bold the thread that crashed and bold my computer specs at the bottom. Thank you to all who can provide some insight.
