A few days ago I was talking about Educational versions of AutoDesk, in this case we will see the trial versions, which can be downloaded for testing purposes. These have all the functionalities of commercial versions, but they can only be used for 30 days from the date of installation.
According to the AutoDesk page, it only applies to users who live in the United States, Canada, and Spain. But in practice it is possible to do it from any other country, at least here I tell you how I have done it:
1 That can be downloaded
| AutoCAD |
In case of Spain you can download from here.
| AutoCAD Civil 3D |
|Autodesk Max 3ds|
| Autodesk Inventor 2010 |
|Autodesk Maya 2010|| Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 |
2 What brings back AutoCAD 2010
In the download pages there are additional links to the most frequently asked questions and brochure with which you can know the improvements of the version.
And it is not bad to register in the podcast, which for this 27 of August will teach Lynn Allen.
3 How to download it
I used an address of a United States Mail box, in this case, to pass the filter, using Mail Boxes that has the following address:
2227 NW 79TH Ave
DORAL, FL. 331 × 2
Immediately I have enabled the download option. In some cases it does not allow it because it associates the Internet service provider and detects if you are in another country, but I suppose that because my provider is an American franchise there has been no problem.
In a few days they will also send the CD, original, with its case, which will arrive at the box in Florida (as it was last year with AutoCAD 2009). Then I will only have to pay the shipping cost that could be for $ 10, subject can be negotiated with the local provider of these services or a friend who has one of these boxes.
4. How long does it take to download
That depends on the connection, it is preferable to use a program that facilitates Download control, Because the files are large and if the download is stopped you have to re-register it:
To give you an idea, AutoCAD Civil 3D weighs 4 GB the first part and 330 MB the second.
It can easily take a whole day with a regular connection.
Once downloaded just run the file with extension .exe
I insist, these are versions of 30 days, to buy it there are distributors in each country, here is a price list approximate It is also possible to use Educational versions Which are much more comfortable.
