Hello, I am receiving a mesh-export error message when attempting to render a scene from Rhino. Does anybody know how I can fix this?

Thank you.

I've not seen that before, and will not be able to tell you much without seeing the 3DM file, so if you could please upload it to dropbox or similar, then post a download link here, or via email (jeremy at nextlimit dotcom), I'll try to find the reason.

Thanks -- I'm not yet sure about the underlying reason, but it is being caused by a group of spotlights in the scene, which are oriented perfectly upwards. If you rotate them even a thousandth of a degree, the error will no longer occur.
