3 major upgrades in AutoDesk Licensing models post-2017

Software collections:

AutoDesk no longer provides individual software modules. Instead, one has to opt for a collection of multiple applications based on their business needs. Currently, AutoDesk offers the following collections:

Name of the collection
Apps you get under this collection

1. Product, Design & and Manufacturing Collection (PDMC)

Inventor, AutoCAD, Fusion 360, 3ds Max and more

2. Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection (AECC)

Revit, InfraWorks, Civil 3D, Advance Steel and more
3. Media & Entertainment Collection (MEC)

Maya, 3ds Max, ReCap Pro, Arnold and more

Note that a single software application can feature in multiple collections. For example, you will get 3ds Max with both PDMC and MEC.

Change in license types:

AutoDesk gradually stopped giving floating and perpetual licenses after 2017. For using AutoDesk licenses, now you have to opt for either Single-user subscriptions (cloud-based named-user licenses) or Token-Flex.

Introduction of subscription plans:

When it comes to reporting, AutoDesk has introduced subscription plans: Standard, Premium, and Enterprise.

Now enjoy premium AutoDesk benefits with just a Standard annual subscription
