Creating wall freezes 3D view

Postby Dgingrey » Wed Apr 04, 2018 5:16 pm

OS: Windows 10
Word size of OS: 32-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 32-bit
Version: 0.17.13488 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 2891173923bcecaace64e0544f5773facbdef436
Python version: 2.7.14
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.0.0
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)

When I try and make a wall using the FreeCad version listed above the 3D viewing pane freezes up, that is I cannot manipulate the 3D view in any way. I draw a rectangle

and after selecting it, press the Wall button. The wall shows up in the combo view but not in the 3D view.

The 3D view cannot be manipulated until I delete the wall from the combo view. Then the 3D view can again be changed.
I saved the file and opened it using FreeCad v17.7745
OS: Windows 10
Word size of OS: 32-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 32-bit
Version: 0.17.7745 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 79dcdfbc782e24bb34db882143af7ce8ebd237bd
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 6.8.0.oce-0.17

As you can see the wall was formed and the 3D view is manipulated.

I have tried installing v17.13488 on four different computers running Windows 10 32 bit and I get the same results on each machine.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I also tried it on a machine running windows 7 32 bit and it worked fine.
It seems the problem occurs under windows 10 32 bit.
I tried replacing the file "ArchWall.PY" from v17.13488 with the file from v17.7745. This fixed the 3D viewing problem but
unfortunately caused other problems so it looks like something in the file "ArchWall.PY" is causing the problem.

I was incorrect when I said it looks like the problem only occurs on Windows 32bit machines. I upgrade from Windows 32 bit to Windows 64 bit
and experienced the same error. I observed that on every machine where the error occurs I get "Mod\Measure\Initgui.py not found" during
initialization of the program.

I just tried the latest versions of FreeCad v17 and V18 and got the same results.

It looks like your graphic driver is the culprit. Do you have enabled the experimental VBO rendering in the preferences? If yes, then switch it off.
