So I just installed the latest build 2714 on my Mac and I get an error window when I load modeler that says this:

I have a 3D printer and when I try to load any stl files lightwave just hangs indefinitely. Worse than that is when I load up 11.5 now, my STL saver plug is has gone missing.

I am hoping this is just some mess up in file locations or something but I am not good with this stuff.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

OK, so I deleted the whole 11.6 directory and re-installed. Now I don't get the little error window when it loads up but it still hangs on STL load, even simple box will cause it.

OK a bit more info.

It seems it will load some .stl files. It won't load any from the old stl exporter plug in. And it won't load about half of the files I tested from Thingiverse. It seems to be about the size or something as the files do look different when viewed in a text editor, see examples below (it's only a short portion of the top of the file).

**Example of stl that will load **
solid Junk.stl
facet normal 0.000000e+00 0.000000e+00 -1.000000e+00
outer loop
vertex -1.450000e+01 -1.300000e+01 0.000000e+00
vertex -1.450000e+01 1.750000e+01 0.000000e+00
vertex 1.600000e+01 -1.300000e+01 0.000000e+00
endloop
endfacet
facet normal 0.000000e+00 0.000000e+00 -1.000000e+00
outer loop
vertex 1.600000e+01 -1.300000e+01 0.000000e+00
vertex -1.450000e+01 1.750000e+01 0.000000e+00
vertex 1.600000e+01 1.750000e+01 0.000000e+00
endloop


** Example of stl that will NOT load **

solid Box.stl
facet normal 0 -6.12323e-17 -1
outer loop
vertex 5200 0 2.2656e-13
vertex 0 3700 1.98523e-20
vertex 5200 3700 1.98523e-20
endloop
endfacet
facet normal 0 -6.12323e-17 -1
outer loop
vertex 0 0 2.2656e-13
vertex 0 3700 1.98523e-20
vertex 5200 0 2.2656e-13
endloop

Another example of the same exact item. A 1mm cube, one saved in 11.5.1 using the old STL plug in the other saved from 11.6 (latest build). Now both files will slice and print exactly but the 11.5.1 version cannot be loaded into 11.6.1 without hanging endlessly.


from 11.6


solid 11.6-1mm.stl
facet normal 0.000000e+00 0.000000e+00 -1.000000e+00
outer loop
vertex -5.000000e-01 -5.000000e-01 0.000000e+00
vertex -5.000000e-01 5.000000e-01 0.000000e+00
vertex 5.000000e-01 -5.000000e-01 0.000000e+00
endloop


From 11.5.1


solid 11 created by Export STL and LightWave3D. Original file is Unknown
facet normal 0 -6.12323e-17 -1
outer loop
vertex 1 0 6.12324e-17
vertex 0 1 2.90806e-23
vertex 1 1 2.90806e-23
endloop

OK, submitted to Fog Buzz, they say it's repeatable and is assigned to a programmer to fix.

Any word on when it will be fixed? I too am interested in creating STL files using Modeler.

Not sure what the problem is.
I have tried exporting to .stl and re-importing with no problem. I have also tried to import .stl generated with 3D-Coat, with no problem also.
I guess the issue may be fixed in the latest build. Or is it random ?

Have you tried importing an STL (in 11.6/11.6.1) exported from 11.5.x? That's where the problem manifested, at least with 11.6.

Nope, sorry, I haven't 11.5 installed, so I couldn't even check. My bad if I have misunderstood the first post.
