    Crash Protection Error...

    I’ve been getting the attached message all day; usually when I try to place a dimension. At first I thought it was because I was trying to dimension from something in a linked Architectural model. But I turned the link off in my view and am trying to dimension to structural items only… I get no other information or opportunity to submit the error to Autodesk.

    Has anyone had any experience clearing this annoying error? I've tried auditing my model with no (visible) clues as to what the problem may be. :banghead:

    I've gotten that error message a couple of times in RAC 2011 and have always selected choice #1, STC, then create a new local and have yet to see any consequences to that course of action. Scares the you know what out of you though, eh?

      Just as Dave, got it a few times with RST 2011, often when creating parameters in a family and testing.
      Sometimes, when clicking on choice 2, nothing happens!! It may deal with memory or ?????
      Did you had an update recently? A Windows one maybe?

      good luck

        Happened to me tonight a few times... For me, the problem was trying to apply a parameter to a dimension in a detail component group. Always thought this could be done, but apparently not (not in this particular family anyway). But, on occasion, this also happens when I'm working on some complex massing or anything else that would drive the software to the limit. But, like jbenoit, most of the time while dimensioning. Maybe you could check if they're any dimensions locked or something. Unlock those and then try again.

        Problem with this message is, you can't figure out what's wrong...

        EDIT:
        I've been working on a set of construction drawings the last few hours. I just got another warning like yours. Could it be that the view isn't exactly perpendicular or that the structural elements have a very small divergion between them (not exactly the same direction). This is what caused my latest crash warning.

          Has anyone looked at the log file to see if there is a major flux in RAM or CPU usage at those points?

          I have had the same issue when just copying and pasting, when it started to do that I used group then it started when I was placing groups, so when back and forth. Every day it seemed to work fine in the morning, but get bad as the day progressed...

            i would get the same message, so i began watching my system performane on the work sharing monitor and noticed it was when my virtual memory got to be less than 40 megs. you will get a warning when it gets below 200 megs. so ithink it is a ram issue.

              That would make a lot of sense. Come to think of it, I only get this on my 32bit laptop, not on my 64-bit 12GIG RAM PC...

                Thank you for all of your suggestions.
                As best as I can tell (from your suggestions,) this error probably comes from the section cut not being exactly perpendicular to the model. The model/building I'm working on has two wings that come off the core at ~50%%D angles. Because of your suggestions, I've tried to make darned certain that all my (new) sections are cut absolutely perpendicular to the model. When doing this, I haven't had any more errors. But, if for some reason, I need to adjust my model, it will throw all my dimensions into no-man's land. LOL.
                Thanks again for your suggestions!!! I really appreciate it!

                  A tip to make your sections perpendicular:
                  draw a refplane first. This snaps on whatever model element you wish to cut using shortcut SP. After that, you can draw your section because it snaps to the refplane quite easily.

                    I followed your tip; RefPlane> SP to gridline. View> Section> draw along RefPlane. Go into section and try to pull a dimension from grid line. Sometimes I get the error, sometimes I don't. It's the sometimes that I DO get the error that is going to push me over a ledge! LOL! Grrrrrr!

                    How do we "Audit" our projects, again??? I'm feeling like I just want to start this one all over again... and tell the architects they need to have square buildings, with flat roofs, ALWAYS!!!
