Hello @laveha_lmla,

The DSM generation could fail for various reasons, just to name a few: not enough RAM, not enough disk space, cannot read the input point cloud, etc…

Could you share the project logs of a project after it failed generating the DSM?
This support page explains how to do so:

Best regards,

i have the same processor and tried 3 different motherboads. I can process a project on my slow laptop with no issues. i try to use this computer and Pix4d app just closes out, majority of the time during Initial processing. nothing shows up in the log. I think its a software issue.

if i reduce the CPU threads i can get smaller projects to finish.

Did you turn off overclocking? I have a 13900kf and I had to change the default motherboard overclocking settings. Specifically the power limits. Be sure you set the CPU power limit to Intel default. Otherwise it will overheat, even with a good cooler, and Pix4D will shut down.
