6. Why is my machine getting an “Out of Memory” Error?

Posted on: November 22nd, 2017 by admin
  1. This is not due to the computer hardware
  2. This is a regulation created by the Laser Control hardware and monitored by the software—previous data is retained for the usage of the “Undo” feature
  3. This error can be eliminated or reduced by increasing the frequency of closing and re-opening the software (refreshes the memory usage value being tracked)
  4. Less data is accumulated if object X and Y positions are modified before a hatch is applied (I.E. objects with multiple hatches, arrayed objects, or ornate files with many data points)
