Download and Install Revit 2016 Release 2

Autodesk has rolled out the Revit 2016 Release 2 to all Subscription Customers. Last year we saw a great deal of confusion around the naming convention for Update Releases and Releases of Revit causing installation issues.

As anticipated the midyear Revit 2016 Release 2 brings many New Enhancements and Tools to the software... but where do we go to get the Installation?    

There are Two (2) primary places to get your Revit 2016 R2:

1. Sign in to your Autodesk Account Manage

2. Launch the Autodesk Application Manager

Please see the following Screencast of these two processes:

After the installation the changed build should be reflected in the About drop down of Revit. For my Revit install from the Building Design Suite my build now shows 16.0.1063.0 20151007_0715(x64) R2.

Hope this helps get the new Revit Release 2 installed. Look for a further list of what’s new at the following link:
