I am experiencing issues while following an introduction to fluid simulation. When I try to bake my simulation, either Blender crashes with the error "Error: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION" after a few frames (21), either the baking continues after the frame 21 but the top surface of the mesh disappears (photo).

Do you have an idea to fix it ?

I already tried to uninstall Blender 2.79 and install other versions instead but it didn't help.

Config : - i5 7400 - Gtx 1060 6GB - driver 391.1 - Windows 10

  • That sounds like a Blender bug. Can you share the Blender file so I can take a look at it? – Mike Pan Mar 13 at 0:27
  • Sure, here is the file : beach.blend . Baking the simulation should be enough to reproduce the bug. – Valerian G Mar 14 at 18:55
