The following will crash my Mathematica every time:

Export["cellular.pdf", 
 Graphics3D[
  Sphere /@ 
   Position[CellularAutomaton[{10, {2, 1}, {1, 1}}, {{{1}}, 0}, 20], 
    1], ViewVertical -> {-1, 0, 0}], "PDF"]

However, if I  replace Sphere by Cuboid,i.e. 

Export["cellular.pdf", 
 Graphics3D[
  Cuboid /@ 
   Position[CellularAutomaton[{10, {2, 1}, {1, 1}}, {{{1}}, 0}, 20], 
    1], ViewVertical -> {-1, 0, 0}], "PDF"]

I get no crash. 

$Version
