Smart. Flexible. Powerful. Autodesk Subscriptions.

Discover what Maintenance Subscription, Subscription, and Cloud Service Subscription can do for your budget, your people and your projects.


Autodesk Subscription gives you access to Autodesk software—the same full version you get with a perpetual license—but with a flexible, pay-as-you-go approach for a software budget that’s easier to manage.

  • Pay-as-you-go access
  • Scalable licensing
  • Up-to-date software
  • Additional cloud and software services

Difference between Single-User and Multi-User

Contract administrators grant access to subscription for single-user products and associated services by assigning a named user to a product. Each named user is an individual with a unique Autodesk ID. The number of named users you can assign per product is determined by the total number of licenses available for that product.

Supports a specific maximum number of users on computers connected to a network. Licenses are issued via Network License Manager (NLM) software utility to each user who starts an Autodesk product, up to the number of licenses purchased. Usually returns to NLM when a user closes all Autodesk products, which makes the license available to other users. NLM can be configured to allow a user to borrow a license and disconnect from the network until a specified return date—a borrowed license is only returned to NLM on or before the return date

Cloud Service Subscription

Now you can access your tools via the Internet without tying up your desktop or maintaining software. Get access to select Autodesk cloud services for creating, editing, analysing, and sharing work through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription model.

  • Convenient access
  • Simplified collaboration
  • Secure storage
  • Powerful computing
