Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
What is CADPRO Technical Services (CTS)?
CTS is an exclusive CADPRO program that allows clients to access any CADPRO support or services (as noted above) on an ad hoc casual basis. CTS is paid in advance, is time tracked and reduces as the time is used.
Do I need to pre book?
No, however it is recommended otherwise you may need to wait until a technical specialist is next available.
Do I need to be an existing client in order to purchase CTS?
No. However, there are other benefits by having your Autodesk business with CADPRO.
Do I get a discount if I’m an existing customer?
Do I still get free licensing and Autodesk Account support from CADPRO?

Yes. CADPRO offers 4 pre purchased time based options – currently 1, 4, 8 and 40 hours are available.
Do I get priority support?
All CADPRO clients get priority support if they are unable to use their software because of a licensing issue. CTS clients will get priority support over those that do not have CTS and are put in a CTS priority queue.
