    This error occurs due to something else in your compilelog. I found 'BaseWindingForPlane: no axis found'. I don't know how this is fixed though

    Interlopers didn't recognize the error, but if I had to guess, I'd say you have an invalid solid. Use alt-p to see if you have any.

    This fixes a similar error, might fix this one?: Open up the VMF in notepad or another text editor, then find and replace all instances of 'nan' with some random number like 3000

    I had this issue in one of my maps a while back, and the cause of the porblem was a game_text entity. I found it by using the cordon bounds until I could pinpoint the entity. Maybe give that a go and see if you have any luck.
