I’m just pushing the limits. I’ve got 8 GB of memory on a system at least three years old. And I generally push the limits of my system let alone blender and your addon. I understand that a consequence of that is that my system will lock up, shut down and reduce me to “xkill” the offending program (Linux).
Using mesh torus’ I tend to have more success.
Also, I’m messing with largely untouched polyhedral waters. Polyhedronisme / JSModeler and Curves - Torus Knots Plus just makes
it easier to visit the nearest Torus Atlas for more largely untouched examples to play with.
So, it wasn’t as much a complaint as an observation. I don’t put the onus on you or your addon.
I just wanted to get it up and running. That much - done.
Heck I get the same thing everytime I push the subsurf modifier above 3. That’s not the addons fault or the authors
as much as the fact that the subsurf modifier just get’s REALLY complex REALLY quick. Throw that at an already complex
model and the inevitable happens.
So this one’s largely - don’t sweat it.
I get used to my system crashing simply because of what I have open at any given moment.
It’s the George Carlin rule of technology - “If you make room for more stuff. You’ll get more stuff.”
Likewise, even if I had a 32 or 64GB megamachine, I’d still have problems. I’m old enough to remember
56k dialup, then ISDN, then Digital. Moore’s law aside, it’ll never be enough.
When people could download images, they wanted audio/video, then streaming, then movies, downloadable CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray.
“Enough is never enough”.
nuff said - I think.
Again - thanx.
