Can' go on with sculpting on reloaded file

Recommended Posts

I reloaded a file of a detailed character I sculpted in voxel-room yesterday, but when I want to paint holes appear (see attached file). So I can't go on with sculpting!!!

I installed the newest graphic-card drivers for my nvidia quadro FX580 (267.05) and installed the latest version of 3D-Coat (3.5.13A). I run it as CUDA-Version with OpenGL on a Windows 7 64 bit.

Okay, the file is not so small (98 MB) but it worked fine to sculpt the object yesterday. Today is the first time I tried to load it from disk.

Could somebody help me?

Well, I think I fixed it on my own:

I started 3D-Coat, worked on an other model, saved it and opend the 'problem-file' without closing the application. And it worked!

Now I split the area I want to detail into another layer, downgraded the other parts and could work again.

For me it seems to be a graphic-card-driver-problem, because my screen flickers when I activate the brush and the holes appear. When I try to downgrade the model in this status 3D-Coat finally crashes. In my opinion it has to do with high-res-objects (15 000 000 triangles). And I had the impression that the application worked slower with this reloaded object then yesterday with the fresh, non-reloaded object.

Never mind! But maybe somebody else had the same problem and this post could help.

This is a CUDA problem that occasionally pops up. Whenever it does I usually either restart 3DC, which usually fixes it, or under the voxel menu you can find a check box to disable CUDA. As a last resort rebooting your computer should also solve it.

Yes, you're right. With 'Use CUDA' unchecked it works.

Thank you very much.
