Autodesk HSM and Nastran In-CAD Changes
Standalone product subscriptions for Autodesk HSM and Nastran In-CAD will no longer be available separately, and Product Design & Manufacturing Collection will be the only way to access these products. Current subscribers to Autodesk HSM and Nastran In-CAD will be transitioned to Product Design & Manufacturing in late-September and will see their annual subscription price decrease.
Autodesk changing Subscription model
In that email Autodesk announced its plans to move to a subscription only model in the coming months. You can still stay on Maintenance Subscription if you would like but, as Autodesk announced, the prices for Maintenance Subscription will be increasing. In the email Autodesk also announced some new promotions starting in June 2017.

A message concerning online renewals through Autodesk
Many of you will receive a courtesy email from Autodesk reminding you that your subscription renewal is upcoming. Within the email is the option to renew online. Please note the message below the button that informs you that renewing online "may not include benefits provided directly by your reseller". This means when you renew through Autodesk eStore you NO LONGER receive technical support from Adraft as part of your subscription contract. If you need or would like to purchase technical support contracts, check out our technical support contracts on our website or for more information or contact us directly: firstname.lastname@example.org or 585-389-1900
Some highlighted articles:
IMPORTANT: Autodesk Maintenance Subscription renewals are changing: Why it’s important to renew on time!
Beginning February 1, 2016, all subscriptions, including Maintenance MUST be renewed “ON TIME". Customers will no longer be able to “late renew” their subscription. Customers that do not renew on time, will lose their subscription benefits, and will need to purchase a new contract (Desktop Subscription). The best path for you is to simply renew ON TIME.
This change does not impact your perpetual license to access and use your Autodesk software. However, make sure to renew on time to continue receiving the following Maintnance Subscription benefits:
• New releases of your software Product enhancements
• Previous versions of your software
• Home Use Rights
• Technical Support
• Cloud credits purchased on that contract
• Entitled cloud services
• 25GB of cloud storage
Maintenance Subscription is now aligned with Desktop Subscription and Cloud Service Subscription policies, making it easier for you to manage your subscription contracts.
Take advantage of the ability to renew as early as 90 days prior to expiration so that you don’t accidentally allow your Maintenance Subscription to lapse.*All information in this article is subject to change
