Hi all,

I'm modelling two 35-story towers in the same model. eQuest has become
very slow and tends to crash whenever I make any changes, even minor
ones. When I try to exit the Wizard to save those changes eQuest crashes
and this msg pops up.

Does anyone know what's causing this problem and how it can be fixed?

I still have about 4 floors to model and the building envelop to finish
before I can switch to Detailed Mode.

I was wondering if it's possible to model the 2 towers as two separate
buildings then combine into one at the end by importing the .INP files.
Would this work?

Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Sounds like you "hitting the centerfield wall."

I was using eQuest 3.61e and 1 gB memory in modeling a 31 story condo, with about 8 shells. That also wanted to freeze upi.
What version are you using? How many gB do you have in memory?
The two building .INP file to combine is a question for the people.
