Crash when using push pull

Drawing crashes when employing push pull, sometimes intermittently, sometimes consistently, sometimes not at all.


  • Is this behavior restricted to just one drawing or does it happen in any 3D drawing where you attempt to use PushPull?

  • Chances are you are suffering from a bug in Acis. Try setting DRAGMODEINTERRUPT to 0, that should avoid the crash.
    The upcoming BricsCAD(Linux) V17.2.10 BETA includes a fix for this.

  • In deed this setting made 3D modeling very stable for V17. Is it possible that this setting is still preferred for BricsCAD V18 ? Att Open Studio we will be testing to set all instances of "DRAGMODEINTERRUPT" to "=0" in '~/.bricscad/config' in order to see if we can obtain the same level of stability during 3D modeling for V18.

  • I thought it was just me, I have an open support case on this behaviour, that's a setting I will deffinately have to try ;>) (though I am using V18)

  • I SR'ed a similar problem with BIMDRAG on Mac.

    When I select some Faces of multiple Objects > BIMDRAG
    and drag the cursor back and forth 5-10 times Bricscad or
    Shape will crash and disappear from my screen.

    Did not try on Linux so far.

  • For me it is most often during BIMDRAG, but inconsistent and not repeatable, it only tends to occur after I have been working on a drawing for some time using BIMDRAG but less frequently with push/pull. And then when I reopen the drawing and try the exact same sequence it works just fine.

    I am not able to crash Shape on Windows that way.

    But you can try to select both Faces as shown in the screenshot

    BIMDRAG > drag 5-10 times back and forth over the whole building

    If that doesn't crash you can try to snap to elements in between :)
    For me it crashes reliably.

    We use the "DRAGMODEINTERRUPT=0" setting in '~/.bricscad/config' for v18 too (not just v17) at our office. ....and when you ask a question and someone takes the time to respond I don't understand why you don't try it out and then write if it did/didn't resolve your situation. Not doing so is a bit egoistic; A forum is in deed useful to resolve your own issues, but you miss the whole point if you are not willing to take a few minutes to help others by posting what you (possibly) found out regarding the issue.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
