About This Version

Version 1.7, 2/22/2017

Upgrading? We’ve made some great updates - but you will no longer be able to view previous Live files after upgrading to the new version.

If that’s okay, go ahead and update. Otherwise, you can continue using the current version and update your app later. The choice is yours.

Autodesk Live 1.7 is more customizable, better aligned with Revit, and easier to use than ever before.

We are excited to announce Revit Live is now available for Revit LT. Improvements have been made so that texture orientation and offsets are now consistent with your Revit settings, and presentations published from scenes prepared from the same Revit file but with different 3D views no longer overwrite each other. In addition, Level of Details geometry generation and material instancing have been added to the Revit Live Service to enhance performance when working with large models and/or virtual reality.

Your virtual reality experience in Live 1.7 will be more natural and instinctive, as you can now use the controller Grip buttons to move, rotate, and scale your Minimap model.

The Live Viewer add-in is brought to you by Autodesk. It's free, but requires a subscription to Autodesk Revit Live to get the full experience.

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014.

There's more information available on the Autodesk App Store.
