New Autodesk Software Collections Available 8.1.16

Product News
Autodesk AEC industry collection. New Autodesk software bundle.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one … As of August 1, you can subscribe to three new Autodesk software collections organized by industry: Architecture, Engineering & Construction; Product Design; and Media & Entertainment. AutoCAD is a key player in the first two (AEC and PD). See more information below.

Not coincidentally, also as August 1, you will no longer be able to purchase Autodesk design and creation suites.

If you’re a current suite customer, or you purchase before August 1, you can easily switch to a new industry collection at any time. No worries if you choose to keep your design or creation suite: Autodesk will support your software for as long as you renew your suite subscription or maintenance plan.

Check out the new Autodesk software collections.

The case for the new Autodesk software collections

Why opt for a new industry collection? Compared to a design or creation suite, you get more …

  • Value—More software and services at a pretty cool price.
  • Simplicity—Three industry collections, rather than six suites with multiple editions. Enjoy the latest software, a unified procurement cycle, and easier license management.
  • Flexibility—Single- or multi-user access (suites are single-user only) and monthly, quarterly, yearly, and multi-year licenses.
  • Cloud services—More cloud services than available with suites.

Sales of design and creation suites end July 31.

Leslie Feldman

Leslie is fanning the glowing embers of the AutoCAD Blog into a raging (yet carefully managed!) bonfire, bringing light and warmth to AutoCAD customers wherever they're huddled. He has been writing, editing, helping design, and managing the production of high-tech marketing communications—everything from party invitations, web banners, and tweets to annual reports, white papers, and animated videos—for longer than he cares to admit. So don't ask. Leslie is thrilled to be back in the Autodesk saddle after 14 years spent wandering the desolate, non-Autodesk high-tech landscape.
