I am getting an out of memory error on SRP Player what can I do to fix it?
Last Updated: 09/17/2020

Check what setting you have SRP Player set to for the Tool Path Precision

File->Preferences->Advanced Tab->

Change to coarse. If you can see a noticeable difference in quality of models drop to Standard.

When you make this change the software will generate about 10 times more toolpaths between each setting. Which requires more memory and time.

If you find that you still want to use Fine (Note Recommended) then you will need to upgrade your computer.

I personally cannot see a difference on a model between the 2 settings.

Other things to try

  1. What size is your STL file if it is over 25mb then it is too big a typical STL file is only about 5mb. Save the STL file back out of the software you created it in using less resolution. See Knowledge Base Article for STL file creation.
  2. On the finishing pass choose Contours Include Slopes not Include Planes (this requires a lot more computing power.
  3. Upgrade the software to the latest version

Check the Include Slopes as another option to try to reduce the computing requirement.
