Autodesk has announced the discontinuation of maintenance plans on the 7th of May, 2021. It will not be possible to renew a maintenance plan after this date, and customers will have the opportunity to switch their licenses to subscriptions before then.
A maintenance plan is the only way to maintain and maximize your investment in Autodesk perpetual software licenses. With maintenance plans, you’re delivered the tools you need to support your business. You’ll always have access to the latest software and product enhancements, flexible licensing rights that allow you to use current and previous versions of your software at home or abroad*, simplified collaboration via Autodesk cloud services, and the support you need to keep things running smoothly. A maintenance plan is the smart choice to ensure you get the most from your perpetual license software.
After July 31, 2016, new perpetual licenses with maintenance plans will not be available for purchase, with some exceptions.
