Help crashing Silo already

Freeby version.
Installed it Friday and have got it to malfunction 3 or 4 times today.
The object I'm trying to construct is like a bone. I made it from a cube and raised one end, flared it then bevelled so it's kinda like a socket. The other end is slightly balled and every time I select the balled face and try and work on it the application crashes.
I have subdivided 3 times coz I need to work on the curvey bits and I like to see how it is.
Any advice on avoiding this and perhaps more importantly will this prob persist if I buy?

Will say this is soooo much easier than Hexagon.

Me too!! All I'm doing is creating a square using the edge tool and pressing P to turn in into a polygon. Crashes EVERY time...

Time to move on to the next bit of software I think...

Cant post on the actual SILO forum as registration is closed.

There maybe an issue...
I have a Samsung HD204UI ADA hard drive and this began flashing up the Hard disk failing message not long after I tried out Silo. Several Scandisks have reported no problem and the message has gone away after not using Silo for a week or so.
Silo was the only new software and the only suspect if... Software can cause Windows to flash up terrifying messages without any actual problems.

Sigh totally out of my league on this perhaps somebody who knows what they're talking about could comment.

still crashing!

SILO really does look like it'll meet my needs perfectly but if it can't make a simple polygon without crashing then I'm forked from the outset.

With ZERO support I guess I'll just have to go elsewhere.

Why won't these guys just make it open source or at least start developing it again.

When Silo 2.2 crashes there is usually a problem with a mesh like stray vertices or
faces that cross each other.
Voidworld is currently in open beta and is being tipped as a new Silo it is well worth
a look IMHO.
