I stopped using it because of that. I found it only crashed when I was making models, but when using it to modify other models it was fine. I’m sure posting your system specs would help some people. But I don’t think it matters, from reading the forums to find out why my system crashed so much I think it’s that random people suffer and others are fine LOL.
what Jimmy posted is the same advice I found and it didn’t do anything for me. Won’t make things worse so worth a try. I am on Win7 64bit, and thought that was the issue but have read people with the same OS didn’t have any issues. For some people it only crashes a few times a week.
It never crashes for me either , same version, using Win 7 64 bit.
I used XP for years as well, and Hex seldom crashed with me then either, just the odd time when I was doing something really complex I don’t know why some people have so many problems with it, but there must be a reason.
A piece of advice I picked up here some years ago was to set your graphics card to “let application decide” or words to that effect. Since then, Hex has always been rock-solid for me through all its various incarnations. Must say, it is very intolerant of pilot error - when something does go wrong, it’s usually me being too impatient.
I seemed to have fixed the issue… not really sure how. All I did was reinstall the program…. thing is this is like the 50+ time i have reinstalled it. Over the years I have reinstalled it on 3 different computers with 3 different flavors of Windows OS and always had the same issue. But this time for some completely unknown reason it seems to be working
That could be the clue right there -“unraveling the mess” - if the seams and pins are correctly placed, there shouldn’t be a mess:)
lol I won’t disagree with you there - but even on a model with three basic parts, Hexagon crashes…most of the time…sometimes it likes me….I just tried the options listed above (I turned off OpenG) so we’ll see how it goes.
Blender?...well, its Blender…in a category all on its own. Really great application…and it helps if you have 5 years to study it, ambidextrous with ten fingers on each hand and twice the memory of an elephant:)
I have a go at it whenever I’m feeling really brave - there are a massive number of tutorials freely available, so i’m slowly making some progress. My problem is when I look at the forums, I don’t even understand the questions, let alone the answers.
Really worthwhile giving it a try, who knows, you might catch on - many thousands of people do:)
