Oconv: system - out of object space: Not enough space error

8GB?! Uhm, yeah. =) Mesh is efficient, but an 8GB one will definitely give you headaches. If you can break that thing down to a smaller module and array it using xform you will be happier...

Hi Radiance community,

I'm trying to generate a BSDF file from a very dense mesh.

The Radiance file is around 8 GB and when I try to generate the .xml file using gebBSDF it gives me the "out of object space error"

Oconv: system - out of object space: Not enough space error
Could not compile scene

I found an old discussion about the same warning which suggests some changes to source code (http://radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/digests_html/v1n1.html). I wonder if there is an easier way to address this issue?

A smarter solution is probably to create a smaller part of the panel and copy it around (which is what I'm going to do next) but I wanted to make sure that I need to do so.

Thanks,
Mostapha

Thanks Rob and Greg,

I use a triangulated mesh which is not generated by Radiance. Is this
something special about Radiance's triangle mesh?

I will try to break down the geometry. I was trying to avoid the edge
effect by modeling it all at once.

Great! I have it as an .obj file. I will give it a try then.

Just to let you guys know, I faced a similar issue a few days ago, in a
very small project. Not sure how I solved it, though. I work on OSX
Yosemite.

It.is all I can say right now... hope it helps!

maybe a silly thing but sometimes the issue is that every polygon is a separate mesh into the same obj file (I think rhino does that with some export settings).
try exporting a small portion and see if this is the case (open the file with a text editor and see), if so then the memory is taken by several repetition of the same lines and it is easy to fix.
anyway good luck, 8GB is quite a record for sure… you may need to break it in pieces or reduce mesh resolution...

Thank you all. I created a smaller unit (OBJ file is ~84 MB). obj2mesh
generates a light mesh ~16 MB and genBSDF runs fine.
