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

8.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (October 5, 2011)
