Can't load a new project, network errors


#1

Been trying to work with a PDF file that is 264k.
Every time I try to load the file I get to the “Rendering design” page and then nothing happens.

On the network tab I see an endless series of failed requests. Tried reloading the page and going through all the steps more than once. Loading other design files still works.

I don’t see that you’re going to get a lot of help from the network statistics page. A lot of things can kill the file upload. The quickest way (to get help) is to upload the file if you can (to the forum for someone to check out).

And by upload the file, he means upload it here so that forum members can determine if the problem is with the file.

File size has very little to do with whether it will upload. It’s the amount of time to execute the cut/engrave that is often the issue. Then there are little quirks within a file that can stop the processing.

:blush: exactly what I meant

Since I posted I have reworked and regenerated the files but still had problems. Is there something I can investigate about the file on my own?

Yes, the things you need to look for are listed in the tutorial below, along with a few other things that didn’t make it into that one, but are scattered among the other tutorials below it.

That should get you started. If you created the PDF file, it should be fairly quick to spot the potential problem areas from what you did to create it.

If you didn’t create the PDF, good luck. Hardest thing to do is try to fix someone else’s work when you have no idea how they created it, or what program they used. You’re likely better off just recreating it yourself. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for the suggestions, @jbmanning5, @rpegg, and @Jules.

@AeroF Thanks for reaching out. I’m so sorry you’ve had trouble uploading your file.

If it’s more comfortable for you, you can email your file to me privately at support@glowforge.com, and I can take a look. Unfortunately, I’m not able to help much without seeing the file.

It’s been a little while since I’ve seen any replies on this thread so I’m going to close it. If you still need help with this please either start a new thread or email support@glowforge.com.
