    Default Free AutoDesk software?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Source: October 2006 issue of cadalyst magazine (pg. 54).

    Start quote:

    Classroom Copies

    AutoDesk launched a Student Engineering and Design Community Website. Stduents now have free access to downloads of AutoDesk software at

    http://students.autodesk.com

    End of quote.

    According to the website:

    You need to have a school-issued email address from a college or university to join and take advantage of the free downloads and other site resources.

    Registration is free but required as well.

    All you students out there should check this out.

    I've been meaning to check that out and your post jogged my memory. I just registered as a faculty member and have access to free software and various teaching materials. There is a surprising range of free software on offer. I haven't checked those out yet but I will. Naturally, Autodesk are pushing Inventor and Revit, both of which are available. However, Autodesk Civil 3D and Autodesk Electrical (both AutoCAD based products) are also available. If you are a students or faculty member, I recommend you check it out.

    Currently, there is very little content of any worth but it is early days and although there isn't a forum as such, there is the facility to ask and answer questions. (not a patch on CADTutor though )
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.

    Although it isn't AutoCAD related, UGS is offering free software too. It's called Solid Edge 2D Drafting and it is available for download at:

    http://www.solidedge.com/free2d/

    For what it's worth.

    It's official, AutoCAD is now available FREE to university students and faculty. Signing up at http://students.autodesk.com with an authentic university email address will provide access to a download area that includes a number of Autodesk products.

    I just downloaded, installed and successfully activated Autodesk Civil 3D. It's a big download, just over 2GB but it all worked without a hitch and I now have the product to use for educational purposes for 2 years.

    As far as I am aware, this is the first time Autodesk have made educational software available to students for free. Up until now, AutoCAD student edition has cost just over £100 here in the UK ($200 US). Meantime, I have been able to distribute SketchUp pro to my students for free. Looks like Autodesk are learning some important lessons.

    This is really good news for the education community.

    I tried it seconds ago and it worked perfectly fine. Give it another shot.

    Still doesn't work? Then go to the AutoDesk website, click on the Community button at the top of the page and from the drop-down list select Students and Educators. It will bring you directly there.
