FastNest Crashing

Kieran Sproule shared this question 16 months ago

FastNest is crashing unexpectedly when nesting parts. Initially gave an 'out of memory' error, but now closes without warning. Haven't had this problem previously and have tried across two different computers and with different parts. Any advice/troubleshooting would be appreciated!

Hi Kieran

Are you able to follow this pdf guide on sending a serivce email?

Setup your nest with the nest parameters and parts you are nesting for this. If you can pause the nest before the crash occurs, then proceed to generate a service email.

If you're not able to generate a service email,

You can instead try to collate the the parts files you're working with, and email through:

your set of parts uses,

screenshots of your nest parameters,

your FastNEST version number,

and your FastCAM dongle number.

my email address is:

How'd you go with this Kieran?
