diamondx will become famous soon enough
it can be disk space, access right to folder or try to change the name of the mesh.

Try saving the project before creating the mesh file. It gives an error in case it cannot find a path to write the file.

My guess is that it either doesn't have access to the folder (check write permissions) or it doesn't have the room (disk space) to put the file.

To test, create a very small mesh (a few hundred thousand elements) and try to output that.

Thank you all for your advise.

I tried again this time with a bigger harddisc and it worked.
At what phrase do you noticed that the free space is the problem?

I thought so but wasn't really sure that this definitely means "you don't have enough free space" ...

Thank you, again.

We were not sure either. It was just a good likely guess.
