123D Catch update history

Find the entire 123D Catch release history here. Click an update from the list below to get more info:

v2.2.3.557 / April 3, 2014

Fix to a false “Offline Mode” alert.

v2.2.3.377 / June 12, 2013

This update allows setup to use a proxy server to resolve login and upload issues caused by some network environments.

Also, the new Autodesk 3D Print Utility is now available from the “3D Print” menu item inside 123D Catch. Use the 3D Print Utility to optimize your model for printing; hollow the model to save print time and material, position the model to minimize the support material required (and see a preview of the support material!), and use adaptive thickening to adjust details that are otherwise too small to print.
