The Autodesk product launch season always offers up a mixture of excitement, disappointment or trepidation. Have they delivered the improvements you had been hoping for? Will the software be stable straight out of the box? Will your team of designers be as excited as you are about the features you got to use during beta? This post gets you one step closer by showing you where you can find direct download links for the latest and greatest releases of your Autodesk CAD tools.
The primary location for downloading your Autodesk products this year can be found in the new Autodesk Accounts site. You can get there via manage.autodesk.com, since that will take you straight to the Products & Services download or activation page:
This is the best place to get the latest stable builds of your Autodesk applications; AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, Vault, 3ds Max, Maya etc and all the extra subscription goodies for you to get your geeky mitts on. And what an absolute joy it is to use compared to the now retired Subscription Center, THANK YOU Autodesk. Oh and with this site… if you fall off Maintenance Subscription, bad idea, but if you do, you will still be able to access this site and download the last version you paid subs for. It was always an absolute mission trying to find download links for previous release installers when you weren’t on subscription.
But occasionally the Autodesk Virtual Agent is a more direct and therefore handy location to get what you need (Download links will likely take longer to appear on here than on the Autodesk Account portal). Of course both of these locations will also have links for all the Autodesk Suites.
Either way, the Autodesk launch season is upon us, so which ever method you use to get your software, keep an eye out on Design & Motion for 2016 What’s New & Review posts.
