Freezing at 'Looking for overhangs '

Wed Feb 27, 2019 10:52 am

We have been using S3D for years now, and are now having issues when trying to slice.
It keeps freezing or goes extremely slowly when in the bottom left corner it says looking for overhangs. Sometimes it could take an hour, sometimes it could take 12+.

The main problem is that it only happens on 'simple' parts. Believe me, this is simple and small for us - no overhangs
Our setting has worked well for ages, and generally only change the infill

I have reinstalled the software, cleaned and scanned the computer, installed on another computer..... It is becoming annoying

Annoyingly, I can't upload the factory file because it is 'too large' (3.2mb)

I just had this problem with a particular model I'm trying to slice. Seems like it is a bug? I have only had this happen with this file so far, everything else I've tried slices just fine.
