Recreating 3dm file from dmp file


I just had a freeze of the Rhino.exe task which I killed after initiating an image through task manager options. Now I have a 2.3gb big dmp file and no other backups or crash files although rhino file saving options are set to saving every 20min.
Does anybody know or have a script, routine, software that can allow the recovery of the 3dm file from a windows dmp file?

Lower the amount of edit/control points and line segments in text curves.

How do I lower the amount of edit/control points in a drawing with lots of curved text lines ?

In the original, made as "ai" file, there appear less edit points when only opened in Rhino 5.0

The laser cutter used for metal sheet, reads an awful lot of small curves after saving the original drawing as a DXF laser file.

I would like to know what causes the increase of line segments and how to simply control this.

Rotating .IES file

Hey guys.

I'm trying to rotate an asymmetric IES file within rhino! But it seems to treat it as a cone light, and can not rotate it. I can pan and tilt no problem but not rotate.

Any one got any recommendations..

Appreciate any help - thanks

All the best
