In March 2024, Autodesk purchased certain PointFuse IP and commercially available offerings and plans to integrate this technology into the Autodesk portfolio. PointFuse customers with active EULAs can continue to access PointFuse until April 30, 2025, subject to the terms of PointFuse’s EULA.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the future of PointFuse with Autodesk?

PointFuse Technology will be integrated within the Autodesk portfolio, where it will be used to drive forward a future scan-to-BIM workflow. PointFuse software, as a standalone application, will cease to exist on May 1, 2025.  

Given these changes, what alternatives do I have to continue to use my PointFuse software?

PointFuse has extended active subscriptions (as of March 27, 2024) to expire on April 30, 2025, to ensure that users can continue to use PointFuse software. Autodesk will provide additional details on how to change over to their portfolio, once the technology has migrated to Autodesk.  

If I am not a current PointFuse customer, can I purchase PointFuse from Autodesk?

Unfortunately not; the software is no longer for sale through either PointFuse or Autodesk channels, although existing PointFuse customer licenses have been extended until April 30, 2025, subject to PointFuse’s end user license agreement (EULA). At a future date, the technology will be integrated into the Autodesk portfolio.
