VW 2020 crashes randomly


This file keeps randomly crashing

I think it's mostly happening when working on a sheet layer.

I think also the service pack was recently updated - possibly SP3?


I've got a pretty powerful PC so not sure why i am having this problem

I've attached my PC info and the file itself in case anyone can find anything obviously wrong with it!

Your file is suffering from having geometry too far away from the Internal Origin. (Distinct from the User Origin). Use the script I posted to remedy this, here:

Your main drawing is over the Internal Origin, but there are over 10,000 objects 340 km south and 152 km west of your main drawing. The recommended max distance for objects beyond the Internal Origin is 8 km. This will create instability due to the insane calculations this scenario creates for your computer. This phenomenon affects all CAD programs.
