Size limit for converting meshes (Blender crashes)


I’ve attached a zipped blend file. Inside is a mesh that I want to convert to curves. The mesh is quite big, and it seems Blender has problems with handling big meshes. Trying to convert this mesh will cause Blender to freeze.


mesh (1020 KB)

If you want just render wireframe, then dont convert to curves, instead set wire material and dupliverts off. Remove doubles also little bit bigger value than default merge distance.


Not sure I understood everything, but what I would like to do is assign a bevel object, or by some other means set a thickness of the wires.

Remove doubles to get hexagons, select all… make faces (F), Wireframe (Ctrl+F)

Ah, Ok. Perfect.

Thank you
