1. Windows 10 Compatibility
Windows 10 is now the operating system of choice and with any switch in OS, it has become important to talk about compatibility with Autodesk software.
According to Autodesk, AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD 2014 are not fully compatible with Windows 10. So investing in the current software ensure that it will work with your current operating system.
2. Anywhere, Anytime Access to your Software
A subscription with single-user access to a tool like AutoCAD, Civil 3D, or Revit (among others) introduces several unique benefits not previously available to individuals with standalone licenses. One of the most important is how Autodesk activates your software with single-user access. Instead of software activations being tied to a machine, access to the software follows the individual.
Though the distinction seems minor, it has a significant impact on what’s involved when you get a new machine or need to reformat your existing one. Since your software activation isn’t tied to the computer itself, but instead the individual, you just sign into your software from whatever computer you happen to be at. There’s no need to worry about deactivating a previous activation of the software or worrying about being over licensed when you forget to uninstall the software from your old machine.
This flexibility also means you can use the software wherever you happen to be. Need to use the software at home? Just download, install, and sign-in to start using the software.
3. Gain Access to The Right Tool for The Job
Autodesk offers a vast collection of tools for an equally vast coverage of tasks. Choosing an Industry Collection such as the AEC Collection gives you access to a full toolset for your industry. As an architect, you most likely collaborate with civil engineers who use Civil 3D. Even if you have no interest in learning Civil 3D, you can leverage your access to it to establish shared coordinates with the Revit software you do use.
Beyond the new, multi-disciplinary workflows possible with the AEC Collection, your existing workflows are also more accessible with it. As an example, many of our civil engineering clients have found the inclusion of tools such as Autodesk Vehicle Tracking (included with the AEC Collection) have allowed them to save money by eliminating subscriptions to other third-party tools.
