Thanks for the reply, Chris (and David). I will try your suggestions. What is puzzling me is that "AutoSave after each result" function, which is supposed to prevent the front end from using up a lot of memory does not seem to help at all. I see almost no difference in front end memory usage whether I use it or not. Also, I don't understand why the Kernel continually uses more and more memory each time it goes through my loop. I thought that once the Kernal sent the output (a 3-D surface in my case) to the front end that the Kernal was now done with that memory. But, the Kernal AND the front end keep consuming more memory with each iteration. Perhaps I am not understanding something very simple as to how to manage the memory in the Kernal. Do I need to "flush" the Kernal memory somehow at the end of each iteration? Thanks again, Larry Knight
