Revit 2015 Update R2

This is just a re-post and links to some of the blogs discussing the latest Revit 2015 R2 Update. 

I downloaded the update last week and so far I am liking some of the improvements I have come across, particularly the search function now available when placing components. The ability to 'load families and close' is also a welcome feature. 

Here is a re-post Autodesk 'In the Fold' on what it is all about.  

Steve Stafford is also posting reguarly on Revit Oped at the moment on these new features. Here is a link to some of the above mentioned features.

Revit Extension Tools

I like my add-ins! They can be hugely productive when you find the right ones. 
I posted earlier in the year about some of my favourites.  

As part of our Autodesk subscription service, we actually have access to some very useful extension tools. Log in to the subscription Centre. Under downloads, you will see 'Product Enhancements'. This will take you to a list of extensions. 

Rather than re-typing it, here is a link to the Cadline Community with a blog outlining available extensions. 

My recommendation is the Revit 2015 extension package which provides tools for bulk uploading of shared parameters into families. I have mentioned E-transmit in the past too if you spend time before issuing models,  purging and deleting views / sheets. 

So take a look at your subscription centre if you haven't already, we pay enough for it!!
