CADDManager on February 5th, 2015

From a recent FAQ on the topic… “Autodesk is gradually transitioning new software purchases for our products to subscription options only. In the first phase of this transition, new seats of standalone desktop software products will generally be available only as a Desktop Subscription beginning February 1, 2016.”

This is the next step in ADSK’s slow march toward this licensing model.  This will make a direct connection between you and Autodesk realted to the ongoing use of the software we all love.  But not if you already have a product. Again from the FAQ “Customers who have purchased a perpetual license prior to February 1, 2016, will be able to continue to use those licenses.”

Here are the products effect now:

  • 3ds Max®
  • AutoCAD®
  • AutoCAD LT®
  • AutoCAD for Mac
  • AutoCAD LT for Mac
  • AutoCAD® Architecture
  • AutoCAD® Electrical
  • AutoCAD® Mechanical
