Warning from openscad

Alan Cox
I hit this with a render today. It seems to still produce valid output. I
assume its just a warning because of the rather large numbers of vertices
in the objects and the output should be valid in this case ?

"CGAL Cache insert failed: group(){group(){multmatrix([[1,0,0,0],[0
(180218712 bytes)
CGAL Cache insert failed: group(){group(){group(){multmatrix([[1,0
(180218712 bytes)
WARNING: CGAL Evaluator: Root node didn't fit into
cache"


(it did also take 11 minutes to render but thats ok)

This is just a warning meaning that you exhausted the CGAL cache. It's harmless, but might result in longer subsequent rendering times, since some sub-objects didn't fit into the cache.
You can increase the size of the CGAL cache in the preferences.
