Autodesk Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection

 

One essential BIM package for building, civil infrastructure, and construction

Beginning 1 August, you can get access to a wide collection of the most essential Autodesk software and services in one package—simply, conveniently, and at an attractive price.

Industry collections will provide you access to a wide selection of the essential Autodesk software for your profession. They will offer immediate access to new technology, cloud services, and several licensing options. In short, industry collections will give you the freedom to access the software products you want, when you want them.

An Autodesk industry collection is the most convenient and flexible way to access a wide selection of the most essential Autodesk software used in your industry; subscriptions to these collections will be available for:

  • Architecture, Engineering & Construction
  • Product Design
  • Media & Entertainment

* The composition of industry collections may be subject to change from time to time at the discretion of Autodesk.

Autodesk industry collections provide you with the following benefits:

  • Access to a wide selection of the most essential Autodesk software for your industry in a single collection that will evolve and get better over time
  • Continuous access to the latest software releases and enhancements
  • Flexible term lengths (monthly, quarterly, annual, multi-year)
  • Both single-user (individual) and multi-user (shared) access offered
  • Previous Version Rights
  • Global Travel Rights
  • Access to more cloud services
  • Technical support
  • Administrative tools

The differences between the industry collections and the Design & Creation Suites:

Industry collections provide a superior experience to that of the Design & Creation Suites in the following ways:

Greater Value – Industry collections provide you value that well exceeds the Premium Suites at a very competitive price point.

Continuous Improvement – Industry collections are designed to continuously evolve to provide access to new applications and cloud services to meet your changing business needs with improved workflows. By supporting the demands of your business as it changes, you will receive access to new technology when it becomes available, rather than waiting for a new product release once a year.

Greater Flexibility and Choice – Subscriptions to Industry collections will be available with single user and multi-user access and the choice of different term lengths, giving you greater flexibility to choose the option that fits your business needs. Today, subscriptions to the Design & Creation Suites are available for single-user access only.

More Cloud Services – You will receive access to more cloud services than are currently available in the Design and Creation Suites, giving you more opportunity to leverage the computing power
of the cloud. In addition, when you subscribe to a collection with multi-user access, you will be able to grant shared access to cloud services, whereas with Suites, customers are limited to a single named user per cloud service.

Simplified Packaging – We’ve made it easier for you to determine which offering is right for you. Instead of evaluating a multitude of Suites and then having to select standard, premium, or ultimate tiers – all of your most essential software tools are in one of three industry collections:

  • Architecture, Engineering & Construction
  • Product Design
  • Media & Entertainment

Change is coming, but you have time to explore your options:

If you wish to purchase more Design & Creation Suites before August​ 1​, 2016​, we encourage you to subscribe now and rest assured that Autodesk will provide you with a simple way to switch to an industry collection in the future, if you so choose. If you prefer, you can purchase perpetual licenses of a Design & Creation Suite with a maintenance plan before August​ 1​.
