Revit 2013 Update Release 3

Just in case you missed it, Update Release 3 is available for all 4 Revit flavours (links below).

Key fixes (as per documentation):

  • Improves stability when using Hardware Acceleration, Graphics Mode.   
  • Improves stability when opening projects which utilize Extensible Storage.
  • Improves visual fidelity between canvas and printed output.   
  • Improves visual fidelity of hidden lines, MEP pipe centerlines and haloed gaps when not using Hardware Acceleration, Graphics Mode.   
  • Improves Structural family data integrity during upgrade of project.
  • Improves data integrity when canceling Save As operation.
  • Improves interaction between Revit Server 2013 and Riverbed compression.
  • Enables users to browse Revit Server Networks when a bound workstation cannot contact the Domain Controller.  

 Dave Baldacchino informs us that this update includes the Hotfix that fixes some nasty non-WYSIWYG bugs (when printing in vector):
Anyway, I also checked that the recent Update 3 (for OneBox)incorporates this hotfix as well, so just skip it altogether and install Update 3 as fast as you can. There are separate downloads for the stand-alone packages.

I guess the fact that we are receiving a significant update to 2013 after getting 2014 will be a further warning to some users to delay the 2014 rollout…
