Pricing and Licensing Changes in the New Features of AutoCAD 2014

The 2014 version of AutoCAD has already been presented, with its significant news. As is tradition, next week we will review what this change implies. However before we want to focus on some aspects that have preceded the release of this version, which are basically a new corporate design and licensing model based on specialized suites. Logo AutoDeskAt the end we include a price list according to your online store; Clarifying that they do not include VAT.

The renewal of the corporate image that AutoDesk has had, which comes with a fresh tone to the traditional black that had prevailed in recent years, has been discussed in the user forums. The change has gradually been implemented in the different platforms of services and products, which incidentally comes at a time when browsing from mobile devices was almost unbearable. His approach is clear, the creative design that comes to know the niche that have positioned with products that go beyond the infrastructures to the animation for movies and electronic games.

Autocad 2014

The licensing model

AutoDesk has done a regrouping of applications in what has been called Suits, so that users can have different programs under a thematic orientation.

So far, the main applications have been:

AutoCAD
AutoCAD Architecture
AutoCAD Civil 3D
AutoCAD LT
AutoCAD Map 3D
Max 3ds
3ds Max Design
Inventor Family
Maya
Revit Products

Although in all 100 programs are different, they have been grouped in the following 7 Suits scalable in Standard, Premium and Ultimate models.

It can be observed that in most Suites in the Standard level, AutoCAD is included, Raster Design that allows to convert raster to Vector (initially called Overlay) and now positioning much ReCap that is for the optimized handling of points clouds. At the Premium level, 3ds Max Design is often included and in Ultimate it depends on the specialty but generally NavisWork that is oriented to the collaborative assembly of objects in three-dimensional spaces of assembly type.

In general we find the model interesting, although we are aware that the dispersion of products that has AutoDesk has been forcing this, which places combos species that in practice have products that duplicate many features. The reason is that being products purchased and had existing customers, it has not been easy to consolidate products and it has been necessary to sustain them with life -What I imagine must be complex-.

The design of the interface of AutoDesk products remains stable after the integrated changes since the 2009 version; So the above-mentioned changes in image do not have an impact on the interface appearance from the gray-black tone built into AutoCAD 2009. And as for the conformation of portfolio in the form of Suites, time will tell the necessary changes. The 2015 version will surely include product-based readaptations that users suggest within Standard Suites.
