I am trying to open a 34m STEP file and after around 5 minutes Viacad gets to 100 percent and then crashes with an error report. I am suspecting that 2gigs of ram may be the problem. I am running the latest of drivers for this system and it has opened several other STEP files just fine but after looking through my files I find that this one is the biggest one of them all and the next biggest one is 7m. Anything else I should check?

AMD X2 6000
2gigs ddr2 800
hd 2900xt 512m cat 7.5

Can you zip the step file (it should compress well as step is ascii) and send me the file to try?
