I want to upload an STL-model with 860.000 triangles and 46M file size. I keep getting this message:
Unfortunately, we were unable to convert your model, because there is not enough memory available for this process right now.
This usually means that your model is too complex or has too many triangles or shells our system can handle right now. Please adjust your model.


Can I just try again later or do I really have to rebuild my model?

Try reducing the number of polys: http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/polygon_reduction_with_me shlab


Pssst! I wrote a book to help you quickly get your Sketchup models ready for printing. Click here to get it on Amazon

Hey Shim,

We have some problems with the memory consumption of high poly models. A work around is in place as of tomorrow.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best.

Robert
