Repetier Host Crashes When Viewing 3D Mode and Print Preview
A couple of months ago, I updated my graphics card driver, and from that point, the software has become slower and laggy when showing the sliced print or the filament printing. It will often crash during prints and ruin the print. The first sign of this problem came when suddenly, it stopped showing the object printing. After some research, I found that this was done to speed the software up due to graphics issues. I managed to re-enable the filament view, but I still have to deal with the risk of slowness and crashing. In addition, I recently checked my log on start-up and found this written:
20:34:39.539 : OpenGL version:1.1.0
20:34:39.541 : OpenGL extensions:GL_WIN_swap_hint GL_EXT_bgra GL_EXT_paletted_texture
20:34:39.541 : OpenGL renderer:GDI Generic
20:34:39.541 : Fast VBOs for rendering not supported. Using slower default method.
After some research, I am only able to work out that it is an OpenGL issue. However, I am unsure of how to fix this problem. My PC specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 Bit
AMD Athlon II x4 CPU
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Graphics Card, using most recent driver version (I just updated it)
All of the things I have found while researching the problem offer no solution, so perhaps someone here could offer a solution that doesn't mean just disabling filament view and reducing graphics quality.
P.S. My 3D printer is a Colido DIY 3D Printer.
