We are excited to introduce the latest product to join the Alias industrial design software family: Alias® AutoStudio 2015. The following FAQs will answer questions about Alias AutoStudio software and its replacement of Alias Automotive.
For Alias Automotive customers who are currently on Autodesk Subscription, there are still options to buy.
What's changing for Alias Automotive customers?
We've introduced a new upper-tier product to the Alias product line called Alias AutoStudio 2015. Alias AutoStudio 2015 will eventually replace the current Alias Automotive offering, as outlined below.
Upon release of Alias AutoStudio 2015, purchase of a new license seat or new Maintenance Subscription contract for Alias Automotive will no longer be available. However, Maintenance Subscription renewal for Alias Automotive will remain on the price list for another 12 months to support the Alias Automotive to AutoStudio migration process, as further described below.
Alias Automotive 2015 is the final release of the Alias Automotive product.
Why is Autodesk making this change?
Alias AutoStudio software, part of the Digital Prototyping solution, is the next-generation, premium solution for automotive design, styling, and technical surfacing. With further extended workflow capabilities, including VRED Design 2015 visualization software, Alias AutoStudio provides an extensive set of sketching, modeling, visualization, and analysis tools for the entire vehicle design process. By providing a continuous workflow, from concept generation through Class-A surfacing, the software helps automotive companies produce design iterations quicker, reduce rework, and bring innovative vehicles to market faster.
What is the migration strategy?
Alias Automotive Maintenance Subscription customers will be, or have already been, offered a zero-cost migration to Alias AutoStudio 2015 upon release of the 2015 software.
