IMPORTANT: Maintenance Subscription Renewal Changes

It is now more important than ever to renew your Maintenance Subscription on time. Effective February 1, 2016, Autodesk will no longer allow for the renewal of Maintenance Subscription contracts after expiration. Take advantage of the ability to renew as early as 90 days prior to expiration so that you don’t accidentally allow your Maintenance Subscription to lapse.

This change does not impact your perpetual license to access and use your Autodesk software.

Daniel J. Counts, CEO of U.S. CAD, explains the changes in this 15-minute video: 

New Civil 3D reporting and productivity tools just released!

The AutoCAD® Civil 3D 2016 Transportation Extension, a Civil 3D Subscription entitlement, is now ready for download through your Autodesk account.

The Transportation Extension offers specific reporting and productivity tools to address the unique needs of civil engineers working on road and highway projects. The reports are built for the specific purpose of calculating model output, and they display results based on multiple model elements and user controls. More details on the Transportation Extension on Dave Simeone’s blog.
