    Revit 2012 - first crash - spacemouse maybe?

    Just sent my first crash report to Autodesk from Revit 2012.

    In a standard 3D View, oriented it to a Section View, rotated the view using my spaceexplorer (spacemouse) and the screen went black, then came back minus Revit.

    Nvidia message appeared saying driver had recovered and then the Autodesk crash report form came up.

    I have an Nvidia FX3800 with the driver listed on the Autodesk site for Revit 2012 running under Windows 7 64.

    Just wondered if anyone else had any similar experiences with Revit 2012 yet?

    Yep, it happened to me on my laptop 2 days ago. I'm running the 3800M video card. I don't have the spacemouse, though.
    Unfortunately, Adesk has never tested Revit with my video card, so I can't update the drivers since I don't know what to update to! lol

      Maybe it's nothing to do with the spacemouse then...

      I've installed the latest Nvidia driver just to see how it goes - that's 270.61 whereas the Autodesk site has 265.70 listed.

      I'm not sure if the Autodesk site updates but it's nice that they have a link to download the driver now.

      I've noticed that twizzling the model around is much smoother with ghost surfaces enabled globally in a View - presumably doesn't need those hidden line calculations?

        Doesn't seem as stable with driver 270.61

        not surprisingly Revit 2012 with the Nvidia FX3800 seems to work better with the driver listed on the Autodesk site, which at the moment, is 265.70

          Thanks for the link! Last year they didn't even have my card listed (since I have the M). Hell, even Revit 2012 says my card was not tested.
          It's there now with a recommended driver. Release 261.27. I'm going to update it when I get home tonight.

            I love the fact that the "new" hardware list doesn't show a single Fermi based GeForce for Windows 7 x64, even tho they are by FAR the best bang for the buck. But a [email protected]%#$ Quardo FX1700 is listed, which was a joke of a card three years ago. I am beginning to think that Nvidia actually pays Autodesk to promote their most expensive stuff, and as usually autodesk will sell out their customers at the drop of a hat. So much effort, and utterly wasted given that mostly incomplete information is just as bad as wrong information, and much worse than no information.

            EDIT: For reference, we have been using the 258.96 driver with GeForce 8600 GTs, 9800 GTs, GTS 250s and GTX 470s with great results, no stability problems, and in the latter cases great performance with shadows & ambient occlusion on in detailed models of 150-200 MB size (a 60,000 SF middle school in CA). Testing now in 2012, and no problems so far, but not enough testing to make any statements about stability yet.

              The (few) crashes I've had so far have all seemed to be graphics related.

              Got one when switching to Realistic with Lines mode, and another when in the new Material Editor.

              Spacemouse has been solid so far.
