Maya crash edge extrusion, merging vertices, multicut tool?

Hi,

Is anyone still seeing issues with crashes and the aforementioned tools?

If you are, can you please post a video of what you do to provoke the issue and if possible please supply a model, and the usual info (OS, and software versions)?

Thanks
Markus

Hello Markus,

Yes. After installing a SpaceMouse Compact and a CADMouse Pro I am fighting crashes in the Multi-Cut Tool in Maya. Sometimes it crashes on first use, sometimes it only crashes after a couple. I won't be able to post a video, but I do the following:

Set project
New Scene
Load reference image (top view), resize image to about 10x size both direction(25x25), set alpha to 0.2
Put reference image on separate layer, set layer to Reference
Add cube
Resize and Move cube to a point on the ref image
Snap pivot point to the bottom of the cube
Move cube pivot to snap to the grid (so the bottom touches the zero plane)
Extrude a face
Use the Multi-Cut Tool to create an edge loop around the extruded object (holding ctrl) to create another cube sized part on the far end of the elongated box - at this point Maya crashes.

I am using Windows 10 up to date (20H2 - build 19042.746), the newest Maya 2020.4 with Arnold
3DxWare 10.7.1.3280
3DxWareCore 17.7.1.17950
SpaceMouse Compact FW 4.37 / PID: S4319301779
CADMouse Pro FW 1.08 / PID: W1020240160

Looks like this is a duplicate of https://forum.3dconnexion.com/viewtopic ... 621#p78621. Does unchecking 'Use Selected Items' in the 3Dconnexion Properties Advanced Settings panel stop the crashes?
