box creator - "couldn't arrange quick enough"

Post by »

I started having a problem with the box creator, where after I enter the info and press enter, a box pops up saying "Couldn't arrange quick enough". The result is that only 2 or 3 of the sides of the box and bottom are on the screen. I've tried restarting Vcarve Pro, running Ccleaner, and restarting the computer. Once I even reinstalled the gadget. Anyone had this problem? Thanks.

It's to do with the vectors in your design. The gadget will display that error when it's gone through a certain loop too many times and then assumes (probably correctly) that something is up with the vectors.

I'd take a guess that you've got overlaps or something. Ideally you need to attach the actual file so it can be looked at to see the actual issue but you could try running the Vector Validator (the blue tick icon) to see what the errors are.
