The factory has been working overtime

The crew over at the factory has been working overtime it seems. Everytime I think I have it all caught up, they go and release another build or additional content. If you have subscription, log in and download the latest content release for structure. There are some new columns including 7 light guage steel, a Double C-Channel steel, and 3 new concrete ones. There are also connections like base plates and gusset plates YEAH!!

Here is the information on the latest build as posted on BIM AND BEAM (

New Build 20080101_2345 to address the Y2K8 issue
We just posted a new build (20080101_2345) of Revit Architecture 2008, Revit Structure 2008 and Revit MEP 2008 that fixes this problem:
It is still considered Web Update #3 because replacing the existing file was the fastest method of delivering it to the public. Therefore, the executable file names are the same as the previous SP3 builds (20071109_2345 or 20071209_1300).
We have updated the Web Update Enhancement Lists to add the following items:
· Improves stability when editing groups, saving views/groups to the library or creating a new project with template set to “None”.
· Improves stability when upgrading or linking a project from Autodesk Revit Building 8.1/Revit Structure 2 or older.
I would also like to inform everyone that we are only releasing this fix in the English version. Because of the time necessary to localize the update for the other languages, it would not be ready before February 1st, 2008 when the problem will go away.
The Web Updates can be downloaded by going to:
