Autodesk upgrade changes

Autodesk (AutoCAD etc) has 3 purchasing strategies to get latest releases.

  1. Buy a new license each time you want a new version,
  2. have an annual maintenance plan (which is pretty good value) or
  3. pay to upgrade an existing license to a new release.

With option 3 the more recent the existing license, the cheaper the upgrade - but this will now change.

From February 1, 2013, Autodesk will consolidate its upgrade pricing model into a single upgrade valid for up to six releases immediately prior to the current release.

This upgrade option will cost of approximately 70% of the current new License cost.

If you have recent AutoCAD licenses you are considering upgrading to the 2013 release get in touch with your sales Rep as it will be cheaper to upgrade recent licences now than after the end of January.
