Too Many Steps : Possible Infinite Loop

luis_truebaluis_trueba Member, Developers Posts: 9 EDU
Hey everyone,

I'm currently trying to run a FeatureScript on a part studio with a large number of parts. Part of its process is generating a tesselation of every part's largest face, but when I try to run it, the part studio fails to regenerate, throwing the "too many steps" exception. This exact feature has been known to work with smaller part studios, but I can't figure out if there's a way to get Onshape to run it on larger studios without breaking. Does anyone know how this can be done?

    Hi @luis_trueba ,

    Could you post a link to your document here? It will be easier to figure out what's going on.

    Could you modify your feature to accept selected parts instead of processing all parts in the part studio? See, if you'd be able to process the parts in smaller increments. If there is an infinite loop in the code, this way you can bisect the parts and identify the culprit, if there is not, you might have to split the part studio for processing.
