I see some posts about people having this same rendering issue in Inventor 2010. I have a customer using 2010 experiencing this issue. Rendering seems to go to a particular percentage and then Inventor simply closes with no error. Droping the resolution, or dropping down to single cores allows the rendering to go through, but thats obviously less than ideal. Can you tell me if Autodesk is planning on resolving this issue for 2010 or is ther no new support updates going to be made for that version?
My customer's specs are well above the minimum and we actually replaced his system thinking the system was part of the cause (it needed to be upgraded anyways) but they are very nervous about trying to upgrade to 2011 because of this issue being so common!
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Let me know if you need more specific info.
One of those solutions helped me, I think in the end it was simplifying the assembly I was trying to render.
Possible workflow solutions:
I have just came across this thread after looking for a hot fix for this rendering problem. I was trying to decide if I need to download the hot fix, and have decided to use the work around instead. I never use the rendering tools in Inventor because I use 3Ds Max for all my still and animated renderings, I think It gives a more realistic image then Inventor. I have some down time and decided to try the Inventor rendering tools, it is good to know there is a hot fix and work around though.
I am having a crash issue when trying to render a high res image. The render was working fine until I added more detail. At first inventor was exiting with no crash report.
I have tried several of the fixes listed in this thread. The only difference they made was Inventor actually gave me a crash report instead of just exiting.
I have all the latest drivers & inventor updates
This problem is over a year old and there seems to be no good fix for the issue.

Its been almost a year and still no fix?!? We've tried all the "solutions" here and the only thing that works is setting the inv process to one core. This is NOT a reasonable fix. When can we expect a fix that works? Inventor studio is virtually useless in its current state.
The Studio rendering issue on multi-core CPU's should have been fixed with Inventor 2011 SP1. If that is not the case, please let me know & supply a dataset so that we can do some further testing.
We have service pack 1 installed. We are only able to run renders on 1 core still. It took about 12 hours to run a render an image on 1 core. I can only imagine what an animation would be like.
I would like to send you the files. i have already sent a crash report. I informed the developer who emailed me that I need access to the ftp site and have not heard back.
Please help we have a client waiting for renders and the excuse of our software has a bug is not acceptable.
OK - please email me directly & we can get you set up for ftp'ing the data to us.
I had this same issue and came to the conlcusion that I did not have enough RAM. I have a dual quad core machine with hyperthreading turned on. This acts as 16 processors. You may have problems with less than 2G per core. I updgraded to 36G (seems a ridiculous amount of RAM though) and everything works well now.
As a general comment Inventor does not seem to use RAM well. It does not give it up when it has finished with it and the amount the Inventor process uses to render a 3D image seems excessive.
