Autodesk CFD Licensing Update

Back to Blog

In an effort to align with their initiative to retire multi-user offerings, Autodesk has released an update to their CFD licensing options.   

Why are these changes happening? 

Autodesk is retiring licensing based on serial numbers and transitioning to plans that are based on users. This transition to NamedUser Licensing provides each CFD user dedicated access to high-level capabilities of Autodesk CFD at a lower cost of entry, compared to the current CFD multi-user subscriptions.

What are the key dates? 

Starting October 7, 2021Single-User access to Autodesk CFD Ultimate subscriptions can be purchased.

This new licensing for Autodesk CFD Ultimate 2021 combines the CFD Premium and CFD Ultimate offerings into a single Named-User offering, providing customers with a higher level of functionality at the lowest cost. 

As of November 7, 2021, new CFD Premium and Autodesk CFD Ultimate Multi-User seats will no longer be sold, and existing Multi-User subscriptions will only be available for renewal; alternatively, customers can purchase a CFD Ultimate Named-User subscription at a much lower cost instead.    

Until August 7 of 2022, Autodesk will be discontinuing Multi-User Subscriptions, meaning customers will no longer be able to renew multi-user licenses. Any contracts that come due after this date will only have Named-User renewal options available.
