Recently some users are reporting that the Release 2 (R2) installer for Revit 2016 (included in the Building Design Suites) are not in the Product Updates section of Manage.Autodesk.com, but the Revit Architecture (and Structure and MEP) one is.
It also does not show up if you filter for it under the Building Design Suite in Products and Services.
The fix for this issue is to search for it by going through the following process:
Once logged into Autodesk Account, search for the Design Suite which you have a subscription contract. ie: Building Design Suite Premium
Select the Downloads link for the desired Design Suite.
This enhancement falls under small but powerful (and frequently requested from customers).
Previously multiple object style subcategories could be selected, but not deleted. You still had to delete them one by one (which could be problematic if you had hundreds or thousands you wanted to cleanup).
With the release of Revit 2016 R2 it is now possible to both select multiple object style subcategories and delete them:
It is important to keep in mind the underlying logic has not changed (for example you still can’t delete hard-coded object style subcategories). If you select some subcategories you can delete and some you cannot - the option to delete will still be unavailable. Revit will still warn on attempted deletion - now giving a total count for multiple subcategories.
But for user or family created object styles, or for all of those imported object subcategories you want to quickly cleanup - this could save some serious clicks. This functionality is available in both the project and family environment.
If you have used A360 Collaboration for Revit 2015, when you install and open A360 Collaboration for Revit 2016, your 2015 projects and their associated Revit models will not be visible. To access 2015 project data in A360 Collaboration for Revit 2016, you will need to create a new project and upgrade the data.
Follow these steps to upgrade your projects and Revit models before you start working in A360 Collaboration for Revit 2016.
1. Open Revit 2015.
2. Browse to the A360 project that you want to upgrade.
3. Open each Revit model and save it to your local workstation.
4. Create a new project to be used with A360 Collaboration for Revit 2016 in your A360 team hub.
5. Open Revit 2016.
6. Open each Revit model that was saved to your local workstation in step 3 and save it.
A 2016 version of the model is created.
7. Initiate collaboration on each model and specify the 2016 project name that was created on A360 in step 4.
When you initiate collaboration, the model is associated with the new A360 Collaboration for Revit 2016 project.
8. Re-link the Revit models as needed.
9. Communicate to project team members that they should use the 2016 project.
There are now two separate and distinct projects (2015 format and 2016 format). Project team members must use the upgraded project and models when collaborating.
10. On A360, rename the 2015 version of the project or deactivate it.
