Discontinued Autodesk Software

By Anna Liza Montenegro | BIM, CAD, IT
Autodesk occasionally retires or discontinues new sales of certain products and services to invest resources in areas that will better meet changing customer needs.
A product or service is retired in two phases to ensure you have sufficient time to transition to a new tool.
  • Phase 1: New sales discontinued – The product or service is no longer available as a new purchase (nor can you add seats), but you can renew your subscription or maintenance plan. In addition, no new features will be released, but support continues to be available
  • Phase 2: Product retired – Subscriptions and maintenance plans of the product or service can no longer be renewed. Customer support continues to be available until your contract expires. Products accessed through a subscription can only be used until the subscription contract ends. Products accessed as a perpetual license on maintenance can continue to be used forever, but maintenance is no longer provided after it is retired.*


  • Maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021, and cannot be renewed.
  • 1- year subscriptions with multi-user access (network licenses) will retire on August 7, 2022, and cannot be renewed.
  • 2 and 3-year subscriptions with multi-user access (network licenses) were discontinued and retired on February 29, 2020.
  • 2-year subscriptions will retire on April 7, 2021, and cannot be renewed.
  • At your next renewal before August 7, 2023, you may trade-in one multi-user subscription or network maintenance seat for two standard named-user subscriptions for a similar price.
