Autodesk has just rolled out its new software rental program where you can rent popular Autodesk software on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Unlike how Adobe converted to a subscription only model for its software, Autodesk also still offers the usual perpetual licenses. I’ve been asking for this type licensing model for years. This allows for small companies to affordable access the software they need, allows for short term projects to be completed and allows larger companies to scale up licenses when required.
Rental plans are offered in addition to our traditional perpetual software licenses, providing benefits similar to a perpetual license with Autodesk® Subscription, including basic support and, for most products, access to select Autodesk® 360 cloud services.
