Software Development Manager, Pawel Kociolek, gave Scott Sheppard an updated installer which he has made available for download. Pawel also noted what's in this update of the technology preview:
  • Capability to generate trusses
  • Capability to generate secondary beams
  • Capability to assign default sections for secondary beams and diagrids
  • Enhanced capabilities (i.e., different settings for X and Y directions) during grid definition
  • Enhanced error reporting
  • Corrections of reported problems
Autodesk conduct technology previews to get Revit User feedback. The technology preview is active until April 1, 2012. At that time, Autodesk need to take the feedback they have received and decide what to do next. Your can help them with that decision by sharing your thoughts at or the discussion forum.

Help Autodesk to develop these items and you might just end up with what you want....

That is so true. As an author and business man, I can relate to how you said "At that time, Autodesk need to take the feedback they have received and decide what to do next". I hope more people discover your blog because you really know what you're talking about. Can't wait to read more from you!
