It is always helpful to post specific error messages, either the code and result if scripting or a screenshot in using the GUI.  That said, ArcGIS for Desktop is a 32-bit application so it has some memory limitations regardless of how much memory the operating system is running.  If you run task manager and watch the memory usage, how high is it getting before getting the error message?

have you installed ArcGIS Pro? and tried it there?

Addendum....

it is 64 bit, ergo...not as limited memory-wise

Also, there are some setting in the AdvancedArcMapSettings utility, found in: C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\Utilities (or similar depending on OS and version):

This thread is old and the Article only goes up to 10.3.1, but I am encountering this issue in 10.5.1.  Has anyone encountered this exporting/printing issue in 10.5.1?

Does anyone know what specifically fixed the issue for them in previous versions of ArcMap?
