Not enough memory error or crash on startup of SYNCHRO 4D Pro (November 16, 2022)
Edit as Assigned, 3D Path, 3D Subdivision and Growth Simulation of Appearance Profile may not work on specific geometry
Working on SYNCHRO Control project with 4D Pro is slow, but working on private project (.sp) is ok
This issue only occurs on some geometry imported to SYNCHRO 4D Pro from .spx exported via the Revit plugin; it does not happen to all geometry exported from the Revit plugin.
For the geometry or models that have the first three issues (a, b, & c), the workaround is to separate those models and geometry and then import into 4D Pro using another format such as dwfx , skp, or fbx instead of spx through the Revit plugin. Unfortunately, some rework is required after those geometry and models are imported into 4D Pro in a different format if previously Edit as Assigned, 3D Path, and 3D Subdivision were used.
For the Growth Simulation issue (d), you can try using a Custom type, with coordinates defining the direction of growth -
For custom directions, you can also create a Cutting Plane, orient it to match the growth direction, and use those coordinates in Appearance Profiles -
If you have a copy of .sp file saved in 6.4, and all the above workaround does not work for you, please continue your work in 6.4 until a fix is available.
The development has identified the root cause and has started working on a fix. We will make an announcement as soon as the fix is available to users.
Strange UI behavior with menu fading in slowly and overall slow performance while working on SYNCHRO Control project was reported by a few users. To solve this problem, go to Virus & threat protection settings, select Manage settings, and then under Exclusions, select Add or remove exclusions. List of processes/path to include in the anti-virus exclusion list:
If real time protection is enabled in Microsoft Windows Defender, MSMpEng.exe takes much CPU usage. MsMpEng.exe is an important part of Windows Security, formerly known as Windows Defender.
Temporarily disable the Real-time protection of Windows Defender and see if this impacts this issue. If disabling it eliminates the issue, follow the link for Windows Defender customization that may help.
