Revit 2013 Update Release 2

Recently, one my client's computers did not have the latest update of Revit and was experiencing crashes when using a workshared project. It is optimal that people use the same version of software when working on the same projects.

To check one’s Revit version, click the little down-arrow next to the question mark in the upper-right corner of Revit:

Click “About…”

The dialog should look say “Update Release 2” like this:

If you need to download the update for Revit MEP, its URL is then select the appropriate download e.g., “Revit MEP 2013 UR2 (64-bit) (exe - 83079Kb)”

Cleaning Up The Disks

Just found an open-source utility that maps out disk usage: WinDirStat <>

You let it run and it shows an overview of all of your disk usage. It also lets you delete selected files -- nice!
The largest rectangles in the drive map are the largest files, click on one and it shows you its info and lets you manipulate it.
I have been working with laser scan point clouds recently. We fill up disk space very quickly; I think this will come in handy.
