Autodesk provides download and install instructions both for individuals and for administrators. Individuals should sign into their Autodesk Account or education site. Find your product and click View Downloads. Select the version, platform and language and then choose a download method. For more information, visit the Autodesk Knowledge Network.
The AutoCAD free trial lasts 30 days, which provides the chance to explore the full capabilities of the latest versions for a limited term. To cancel a free trial, turn off automatic renewal before the trial period ends. If you were not required to enter a payment method at the start of the trial, it will expire automatically.
After your trial expires, you can not extend the trial period. For short-term needs, you can purchase a monthly subscription and turn off automatic renewal (to limit the length of the paid subscription to one month only) or purchase Flex tokens for a flexible pay-as-you-go plan.
If your installation or product download fails, try using the Browser Download method instead (not available in macOS). We recommend disabling pop-up blockers and trying a different browser, such as Chrome or Explorer. For more solutions, check out our guide to troubleshooting Autodesk product download issues.
Students and educators can get free one-year educational access to Autodesk products and services, which is renewable as long as you remain eligible. If you are a student or educator, you can access free AutoCAD software with an Autodesk Education plan (US site).
