What's changing for Alias Automotive customers?
Alias Automotive 2015 was the final release of the Alias Automotive product. Alias AutoStudio 2015 has replaced Alias Automotive software.
When we released Alias AutoStudio 2015, buying a new license or new maintenance plan contract for Alias Automotive was no longer an option. However, maintenance plan renewal for Alias Automotive remains on the price list to support the move from Alias Automotive to AutoStudio.
Why is Autodesk making this change?
Alias AutoStudio software is part of the Digital Prototyping solution for automotive design, styling, and technical surfacing. With extended workflow capabilities, including VRED Design 2015 visualization software, Alias AutoStudio provides sketching, modeling, visualization, and analysis tools for the entire vehicle design process. 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 plan customers will be, or have already been, offered a zero-cost migration to Alias AutoStudio 2015.
For Alias Automotive customers who are currently on subscription, there are still options to buy:
