Subscribing to Autodesk products provides a simplified software setup and an improved user management experience so that you can stay focused on designing and making, without worrying about your software.
Easy-to-use administrative tools allow you to simply and effectively manage software licenses, seats, and usage from your Autodesk Account.
Do I need to be connected to the Internet to use my desktop software subscription?
For most of our desktop products on subscription, you don’t need to be online to use your software. The software runs on your computer, not on the web. You do, however, need to connect to the Internet every 30 days, so we can keep your software up to date and verify that your subscription is still current. An Internet connection is needed initially to install and activate your software.
Some of our software products also give you access to certain cloud services that are not installed on your computer. These may include optional services such as cloud rendering, collaboration tools, and secure storage. We also offer certain products that are available only as a cloud service. Cloud-based products require an Internet connection.
Will you email a reminder before my subscription automatically renews?
Yes, for annual and multi-year terms, we send an email reminder before your automatic renewal date. We do not send an email reminder for monthly renewals.
Can I cancel before the end of my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription anytime—or within 30 days of purchase for a full refund— for any product or service purchased through our online store. You can also edit your renewal setting from your Autodesk Account page, so your subscription does not automatically renew. You’ll have full access to your software and services until your subscription expires.
