This benefit as well as others are detailed on the Autodesk Subscription web site and in the Subscription Program Guide which should have been included in your subscription welcome kit. So if you upgraded AutoCAD 2002 to AutoCAD 2005 on subscription, you can continue to use your AutoCAD 2002 seats as well as the AutoCAD 2005. At $420 for AutoCAD subscription it is a real bargain and cheaper than upgrading each year on 12 month upgrade cycles especially when you consider the other benefits such as web support and e-Learning content.
Autodesk® Subscription is the best way to stay current with the latest design technology-while gaining the benefits of simplified software management, easy budgeting, e-Learning, and web support.
