So worth it to keep your AutoCAD up to date. The best way to not have to spend 3500 every other year.
The renewal was simple and very quick. Loading AutoCAD 2014 however didn't go very smoothly.
Although I had trouble getting the program to load, once I figured out out how to access the Autodesk Technical Assistance, the problems were resolved. The techician was professional and very helpful. All in all Autodesk did a good job. I haven't had much time to work with version 2014, but it seems to be what I expect from AutoCAD, a very good program.
