TinkerTip: Grouping Errors

TinkerTip: Grouping Error

Sometimes a grouping error can occur with Shape Generators that don’t save correctly.  The cause is usually a rogue object, here’s how to fix it.

  1. my design page can not to work, and page red color, and

    “A problem occurred while trying to combine grouped shapes. Please try to group shapes in different order.
    If the problem persists, let us know and we’ll help you out!”

    help me please

  2. I continue getting the error message even after attempting the fix from the video. I couldn’t get rid of a Cylinder w/parameters by user KingArtX (it wouldn’t delete, it wouldn’t group, it wouldn’t turn into a hole), so I tried setting the parameters to 0. Now it’s supposedly still there but unselectable. Any advice? Thanks.

  3. I am having the same issue. Sometimes its ok other times not. Right now is just is not ok…

    MY model was quite complex I and I would rather not have to start over.

  4. So I too am now a member of the “big red spot” club. I’ve been following the posted ad-removal instructions meticulously, all to no avail. I’ve been at this for about an hour, and this is what I’m seeing:

    I didn’t have the PassShow software specifically, but something similar, so I just followed the instructions as usual. Nothing happening.
    Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

  5. Well, I don’t know exactly what is happening in my model, but this message appears in it. Also, I can’t make a hole in some objects, so this is probably the problem. Whatever it is, I need help…please

  6. We are using the image generator in the tinkercad shape generator and getting “A problem occurred while trying to combine grouped shapes. Please try to group shapes in different order.
    Check out the FAQ for help. If the problem persists, let us know and we’ll help you out!” error. There is nothing being grouped. It is just the image generated. As a result, we cannot download the image to print. Help please!

  7. I spent 2 days using Tnk, fine. But since 1 hour, I can’t work, what ever Iam doing:

    my design page can not to work, and I got

    “A problem occurred while trying to combine grouped shapes. Please try to group shapes in different order.
    If the problem persists, let us know and we’ll help you out!”

    help me please

  8. I, too, have a grouping error, but the error only affects a few of my saved designs. Every time I open one, it not only informs me that I have a grouping error, but it also refuses to load my designs. I can’t deselect individual pieces one by one as the video suggests because they are not even there in the first place. Also, every time I import a file, the piece disappears.

  9. Hello. I am trying to put shapes on top of each other. I came to your article and after its says “here’s how to fix it” there’s nothing after that. Please help me.
