Thank you for asking for permission to use Autodesk’s materials! We appreciate your help in protecting Autodesk’s copyrights and want to make it easy for you to figure out when you can use our images and written information, so we have created this Permission Policy.
Why does getting permission matter? Autodesk’s products, services, and website content (“Autodesk Content”) are owned by Autodesk, Inc., and its licensors and may not be used without a license (our permission). How you get our permission depends on the type of Autodesk Content:
Note that permission to use Autodesk Content does not include permission to use third-party materials that Autodesk might have incorporated in the Autodesk Content.

What is this?
Pre-approved Use: You can use the above-mentioned Autodesk Content only according to the agreements that apply to them:
For any other uses of these types of Autodesk Content, see Other Content and Other Uses.
For any other Autodesk Content or for uses that are not pre-approved, please submit your request through our automated workflow.
Some examples (without limitation) requiring separate approval by Autodesk:
Screen shots are the individual screen displays contained within Autodesk® software applications.
Other than screen shots that appear upon booting up a product, or on opening screens, or “splash screens,” or screen shots taken from products or applications that Autodesk has not yet commercially released (including technology previews and beta-version software), you may make a fair use of screen shots for purely educational or illustrative purposes (such educational guides, tutorials, how-to books, training presentations, product reviews, video demonstrations of the software, Websites, etc.) provided you adhere to the following guidelines:
1. You may not use screen shots that contain third-party content unless you separately seek and obtain permission from such third party to display its content.
2. Your use may not directly or indirectly state or imply sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your product or service by or with Autodesk.
3. You may highlight or label a portion of a screen shot to call attention to a specific instruction or to explain a function of the software from which the screen shot is taken. You may crop or cut a portion of a screen shot to direct a learner’s attention to the function illustrated in that portion. You may not otherwise alter the screen shot in any way except to resize the screen shot in direct proportion to the original.
4. You may add commentary or other text analysis as long as it is very clearly attributable to you, and not to Autodesk.
5. As stated above, you may not use screen shots from Autodesk beta products or other products that are subject to non-disclosure obligations and/or that have not yet been commercially released by Autodesk.
6. You must include the following attribution statement on all materials containing Autodesk screen shots: "Autodesk screen shots reprinted courtesy of Autodesk, Inc."
7. If your materials include references to an Autodesk product, show in plain text the full name of the product with corresponding trademark symbol at the first and/or most prominent mention (e.g., Autodesk®, AutoCAD®, Civil 3D®, DWG™, Inventor®, Revit®, etc.) in such materials. Your use of or reference to any Autodesk trademarks should comply with Autodesk Trademark Guidelines for Use, and should include a trademark attribution paragraph that correctly lists all Autodesk trademarks referenced in your materials, such as, “Autodesk, AutoCAD, DWG, the DWG logo, and Inventor are registered trademarks or trademarks of Autodesk, Inc., and/or its subsidiaries and/or affiliates in the USA and other countries.”
8. Your use of Autodesk's screen shots may not be incorporated into obscene or pornographic material, and may not, in Autodesk's sole opinion, be disparaging, defamatory, or libelous to Autodesk, any of its products, or any other person or entity.
9. Your materials should not be solely composed of Autodesk screen shots or other Autodesk intellectual property. Instead your materials should add substantial commentary, critique, or value to the Autodesk screen shots or other Autodesk intellectual property.
