OpenScad crashes

MKoch
Dear OpenScad list members,

I have a problem with this file:
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:152919/#files
It's a big 9MB file. When I import it into OpenScad, it's shown
correctly in the display. But when I press F6 to compile and render,
OpenScad crashes after 1 or 2 minutes. I get this error message:
"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library: Runtime Error!  Program:
openscad.exe   This application has requested the Runtime to terminate
it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for
more information." I have the same problem on two different computers,
under WinXP and Win7. Any idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks,
Michael

Unfortunately, OpenSCAD isn’t designed to handle such large files. You’ll be able to preview it, but not render it.
This may change in the future, but until then the underlying libraries we use makes this a hard case.

Can you recommend any other software to split such a big *.stl file into
two halves, so that the halves can be printed on a flat bed?

You can try to simplify it with Meshlab. This model seems to have a
very high resolution, so you can not expect to print all the details
anyway. I guess you can reduce the filesize significantly without
losing too much.

Also netfabb basic, http://www.netfabb.com/downloadcenter.php?basic=1, can cut a stl file
into pieces. You could try splitting it into a top and bottom half.

NetFabb Studio will cut up STL files.

Blender can handle pretty big STL files and includes a 3d-printing-toolbox add-on to do model checks (needs to be enabled in the user preferences).

Thank you very much, I was able to split it with this software.
