3D Palette: Crash after model import

IssueI import a model into Simplebim and the progress reporting of the import completes. Then the model trimmer workspace opens and you see the Objects and Properties palettes normally, but the 3D palette says ‘Loading 3D’. At this point the application crashes.
SolutionThe problem is the registration of the 3D palette. This can happen when you install a new version of Simplebim side-by-side with an older version of Simplebim, and then later uninstall the older version and start the newer version. The solution is to re-install the new version Simplebim, which registers the 3D palette.

NOTE: If you are using the latest version of Simplebim you need to un-install Simplebim first and then install again. Don’t worry, this does not affect your Simplebim license or user settings. If you are not using the latest version of Simplebim, then you can get the latest installer here and simply install with the latest installer.
