Did you KNOW : We are about to hit 1000 NUMBER

It is not too long when we started this group with mere 18 people, and I feel so proud today that we are about to hit 1000 members very soon. While countdown has started for 1000, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you particularly those who contribute to help others for making this group a great success. On the behalf of entire Autodesk India team, I wanted to thank our technical team from our Authorized partners to be a great resource of help in this forum. I am sure this group is going to touch great heights and is going to be a key resource for BIM in Architecture going forward.
I think now time has come to bring some more action here, following are some ideas from our side, however please don’t not hesitate to share with us any addition or modifications

· Unofficial list of “Wishlist” items for Revit Architecture future releases
· User Group Meeting (I mean meeting each other at some common location and share some high-end technology stuff, invite some key professionals from industry to share wisdom)
· Design Competitions J
· Any other welcome

I am sure we all would be excited to add and support these new adventures, I am going to send separate emails for each of them please reply to the respective emails

Once again thank you so much on the behalf of entire Autodesk India AEC Team and Authorized Partner technical team.

Revit 2009 products Web Update #2 is now Live!

We are pleased to announce that the Revit product teams have just released the English version of Web Update 2 for Revit Architecture 2009, Revit Structure 2009 and Revit MEP 2009 (Build 20080915_2100) and it is now LIVE.

For the first time in the Revit product line history, we have implemented Service Pack technology similar to the AutoCAD based products. This will greatly reduce the effort needed to update the Revit products to the newest build by allowing our users to update their existing installations without having to reinstall Revit

The Web Update 2 can be found under the Revit Architecture/Structure/MEP 2009 product download pages:
