Title: Extrude Crashes Program
Post by: ashmac1016 on November 29, 2017, 03:02:33 PM
I have been working on a project creating 3D models of landscapes using photogrammetry. We want to print the models we make, which means I need to extrude it to a flat base. Meshmixer makes this easy using the Extrude function, but I am unable to use it for my latest model.

I import the model, trim it using Plane Cuts, then select all > edit > extrude, and the second I click "Accept" the program crashes and an Autodesk report window pops up. I have tried reducing the file and scaling it down, but nothing works. Does anyone know why the program keeps crashing? Is there something I can do?

Does ANALYSIS/Inspector detect some mesh errors (except the outer boundary - which should be marked blue)?

Can you close the outer boundary using Inspector. If yes, you could extrude the patch filling the hole...

Does it happen with just one model?

There is one model it happens with consistently, yes. I've tried reducing the size, I even recreated the model from scratch. It still crashes every time. There are no detected mesh errors.

Hi ashmac1016,

Would you be willing to share the model that the crash is happening with? If so, can you please send it to meshmixerbug@autodesk.com?
