Complicated model causing an error message
January 23, 2018 01:10AM
I'm trying to design an object, and it's getting quite complicated. Now, when I add an extra detail and press F5 for preview, I get the following message:
WARNING: Normalized tree is growing past 4000 elements. Aborting normalization. 
WARNING: Normalized tree is growing past 4000 elements. Aborting normalization. 
Normalized CSG tree has 101 elements
I guess that I've gone over some OpenSCAD limit, but is there anything I can do about it?

You can go to the "Edit/Preferences/Advanced" menu and increased the maximum allowed number of elements (and probably the cache sizes as well).

Thanks very much! I thought it might be a simple answer, even though I didn't spot it for myself... smiling smiley

Increasing the max allowed number of elements did the trick - I'll keep the cache sizes as they are, unless I get problems in the future.
