Although, I'm very happy with the service that Novedge has provided me over the past several years, unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the present and upcoming changes that are occurring with the AutoCAD program. I've used this program since it's early beginnings back in 1995 and all I can say is that it is a shame that Autodesk like many other software developers have fallen into a realm of greed with the continual upcharges and now a "rental-type" agreement that only furthers the companies emphasis on a continual cash-flow driven product. It's a shame for users that have been loyal to the product and kept up on yearly upgrade and maintenance fees, that now we won't even own the product for which we pay such a high price.
Sorry for the rant, but I'm sure others feel the same!
always easy to deal with
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.
