SU 2017 runaway memory use

Postby chrisjk » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:39 pm

I just installed SU 2017 Pro on my iMac 5k. Simply opening the app with a few of the plugins I used in 2016 and the memory use is 7.5GB. Trying to do something like putting materials on a test cube and memory use climbs to 21 GB.

The app is basically unusable at present. I'd be grateful for any ideas!

Answering my own problem here. It seems that Sketchucation tools is the culprit. I transferred the version I was using with SU 2016 and used it alongside the plugins that the Trimble extension manager had installed. Having removed the SU Tools extension, memory requirements dropped dramatically to something reasonable.

Doing a bit of research, I found SU tools v. 3.1.3 but could not get them to install in SU2017 Pro 17.3.116 - I unzipped the rbz and put them in the plugins folder then relaunched SO but to no avail.

It seems that Trimble are determined that one should use their extensions manager.
