Retired Autodesk products and plans


Autodesk occasionally retires or discontinues new sales of certain products and services to invest resources in areas that 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: You can no longer add seats or get a new subscription. But you can renew an existing subscription and support is available. No new features will be released.
  • Phase 2: Product retired: You can no longer buy or renew the product or service. Support is available until your contract expires. Subscription products can only be used until the subscription ends.

Important:

  • Annual multi-user subscriptions (including Extra Territory Rights) may be renewed until 7 February 2023.
  • 2 for 1 trade-in offer: At your next renewal before 7 February 2024, you can trade in one multi-user subscription for two standard named-user subscriptions for a similar price. See the Transition to named user programme FAQ.

The following is a list of discontinued or retired products and services, and alternative software solutions. Please refer to the terms and conditions (US site) of your subscription agreement for complete information regarding changes to offerings.
