There can be several things causing Lychee Slicer to crash at slicing:
- Check that your computer meets the recommended requirements. https://mango3d.io/requirements/
Remember that these recommendations are for 2K and 4K printers and that with higher resolution printers, you will need a more powerful computer.
- Force High GPU Mode to tell Lychee Slicer to use your graphics card in priority https://support.mango3d.io/support/solutions/articles/79000140105-force-high-gpu-mode-performance-
Printer and settings:
- As mentioned previously, the resolution of your 3D printer is important for the slicing stage. Depending on the size of your model/project you can change the settings to optimise slicing depending on the screen resolution.
- The same thing goes with Anti-Aliasing. The higher the AA levels, the more power Lychee Slicer will need. Not all 3D printing projects need Anti-Aliasing and you can slice without it and still get great results if your printer has a high resolution.
- Another reason Lychee Slicer might crash at slicing is if the model needs repairing. You can see a model is broken in Lychee Slicer when it appears red instead of blue. You can use the Repair Tool or a 3D design program to repair the file before slicing.
- If your model has an abnormally high polygon count, Lychee Slicer could struggle at the slicing stage. Try with a lighter file/model to double-check that you are able to slice.
