I’ve been running Simplify3D on my Mid-2013 MacBook Pro for a week or so and running prints successfully on the Flashforge Creator Pro I bought at the same time. However, recently the software has begun to act rather strangely, become increasingly unstable and finally, quit altogether.
Initially, it started to hang on the build preview - usually while "Detecting overhangs" - but, now, it will open, but if I go to import a valid STL file, it just dies and I get the “report an error” window. This doesn’t seem to be file-dependent.
I’ve tried uninstalling - both before and after a complete restart - and reinstalling, to no avail.
A couple of clues that might help:
* When the software starts, the main view pane looks like an old TV with the antenna unplugged for a second before the build plate comes up. I don’t remember this having happened when I first got it.
* Before it quit altogether, I noticed that, when I imported a file, there was an animation of the previous file falling down onto the build plate before the new model was displayed.
I’d appreciate any help the community can give as I'm desperate to get this problem sorted out as quickly as possible.
