Customers can save up to 15% when trading-in qualifying perpetual licenses for subscriptions to the latest Autodesk industry collections or on most individual products — including AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, Revit, Inventor, 3ds Max and more.
Are you an LT user?
Don’t worry, you can trade in your old Autodesk LT Family products for a subscription to the latest version – or you can trade up to AutoCAD, other eligible products, or even industry collections.
No risk guarantee
If you’re not satisfied with your move to subscription, you’re eligible to switch back.
If you decide to trade-in your perpetual license for a 1- or 3-year subscription to an industry collection, not only will you save up to 25%, you’ll also benefit from access to a number of other Autodesk software solutions that can help improve business outcomes and digital transformation, enabling you to meet your objectives.
There are three types of collections to choose from.
To see a complete list of products in the above collection please visit our Autodesk software pages.
What if I do not want to update immediately when updates are available?
Customers who subscribe get access to the most up-to-date Autodesk design and creation tools as they are released. They have control over when they update. Additionally, customers who subscribe get Previous Version Rights access to select previous versions of the software they subscribe to (where available).
How does the GFP trade-in offer differ from the Maintenance to Subscription offer?
The Q1 GFP Trade-in offer is a limited-time opportunity for customers who have old perpetual licenses without active maintenance plans to trade-in and save up to 15% on qualifying new subscriptions to Autodesk products. The Maintenance to Subscription offer is an ongoing opportunity for customers whose maintenance plans are up for renewal to switch to subscription and secure discounted pricing going forward.
What if I have trouble using software subscription?
Subscribers have access to a range of Technical Support options to minimise delays and downtime.
What does “Switch-back option” mean?
If you’re not satisfied with your move to subscription for any reason you are eligible to switch back to your perpetual license at the end of either the 3-year term, or the end of the second year of an annual term.
I work from home, the office, and on the road and need my software in all three places. What can I do?
An advantage of subscribing is that customers have Home Use and Global Travel Rights — allowing the use of the software virtually anywhere, anytime.
What else do I get with my subscription that I don’t get with my perpetual license?
In addition to the benefits described above, subscribers also have access to collaboration tools, secure storage, faster rendering, and visualisation capabilities. They also have access to Administrative Tools, like contract reports, usage reports and more help you keep track of your benefits.
I am not always connected to the internet. Will I lose access to my software?
No! An internet connection is needed to activate software when using a new subscription for the first time. It is then possible to work offline for up to 30 days, at which point it will be necessary to connect to the internet to keep using the software.
AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, Suites or other eligible products from 1998 -2018 may be traded in to save on 1-or 3-year subscriptions to Autodesk industry collections and many more.
