Makerbot software crashed. lesson: dont use it.
Cura froze for a few minutes (running on a just built Intel core I7 desktop PC. Tried it on a Intel core I9 desktop with a GIGABYTE motherboard. crashed)
Slic3r had no problems with it. Tried it on a n IBM ThinkPad T41, did it very quickly. Tried it on a quad XEON E7 SUPERMICRO server, does it instantly.
Going to print it on my I3 if I find some time

Hi, thank you for your review. I tried it on Cura and it has some problems with the minimal distances control but it doen't crash, despite, I will check it again.

It is a torture test for slicers, and it does do its job. I will find some more slicers and see how they survive.
Cura only crashed on a Intel core I9 desktop PC running Win 10 (aha!)
the Core I7 desktop running windows 7 deals with it fine.
I am very surprised with a laptop from the early 2000 running Windows 7 did it pretty quick. This is due to system architecture.
