Autodesk 2011 Products To Be Downloaded...

So I'm not dead... I'm sorry for the extreme lapse in posting here, I've been busy with new ventures for Mid-West CAD and hopefully will have some things to share concerning that in the coming weeks. I also have a list of things I'd like to cover here and plan to dedicate some time posting, so stay tuned.

Today I'd like to talk to you Autodesk Subscription customers. I hope you've been pounded with this information and already have a plan, if not - listen up.

The 2011 release of Autodesk products won't be shipped to you. You'll get a link to download your products. Now, I can't predict the future, but I think we're going to have a tough time with these downloads. Luckily, Autodesk WILL ship it to you, you just have to ask for it. Some of you may have 4 or 5 products that you're company has on subscription, that's a lot of downloading... that's a lot of bandwith.

Contact Autodesk through the subscription center if you'd like them to ship you DVD's rather than having to download you're products.

This is the first time Autodesk has done this, provided downloads instead of CD's or DVD's. They're trying to be more enviornmentally sound, and I understand that completely. I applaud it. Will it work? Most likely. Will this process get better with time? Most definitely. So good luck to you who opt for only the download. Be sure to post here and let me know if I was wrong...

See ya,
