Autodesk, like many other software companies, has transitioned to a subscription-based model for all of their products, including popular software like AutoCAD, Revit, and 3ds Max. This means that instead of buying a permanent license, users pay a recurring fee to use the software for a set period, typically monthly or annually.
This shift away from permanent (or perpetual) licenses aligns with broader industry trends in software distribution. Subscription models offer several advantages to users, such as regular updates, ongoing support, and more flexible pricing structures.
