Why we made these changes

The way we design and build is changing quickly, which also changes the tools we use and the ways companies and individuals buy and access software. By subscribing, you receive a simplified customer experience, enjoy lower upfront cost and have the ability to pay for Autodesk products and cloud services for the amount of time that is right for you: monthly, quarterly, annual and multi-year term lengths (availability may vary depending on region or access type).

Your subscription makes it easier to access your software and stay up-to-date. You will be able to subscribe to an individual product or a collection of products that can be used by a single-user or shared by multiple users. Providing subscription offerings with flexible packaging and licensing options protects the value of your existing investment in our technologies.

Do you have any questions about subscription options?

You will find more detailed information on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

In addition to our FAQs, please visit our Perpetual Licence Changes Forum to see if your question has been asked and answered or to submit a question.
