Latest Autodesk 2012 Service Packs

By Anna Liza Montenegro | IT

In case you aren’t paying attention, Autodesk has released Service Packs (SP) for quite a few of the 2012 products in recent weeks.  Yesterday (September 8, 2011) a SP was released for all the Navisworks products:

This patch will update the entire Navis family in one swoop…Freedom, Manage, and Simulate.  Interestingly, the Autodesk website lists 2011 as the product this SP is for, but I assure you it is not.  I’m sure it won’t be long before someone at Autodesk figures it out and updates the error.

Meanwhile, the AutoCAD 2012 SP1 was published on September 1, 2011 and can be found here:

Note the AutoCAD-based vertical products (AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, AutoCAD Map 3D, and AutoCAD Civil 3D) are not yet available, but I’ll be waiting/watching and update you when they are out.

For the BIM folks, the entire suite of Revit products were updated in June 2011.  See below for a link to each flavor:

Revit Architecture 2012

Revit MEP 2012

Revit Structure 2012

Once you install these updates, your Build should be listed as:

Update Release 1

Obviously your Build listing will be slightly different if you don’t have a 64-bit Operating System, but who in their right mind is using Revit 2012 on an old 32-bit machine anyway, right?
