Autodesk software now free to schools worldwide

Friday, October 10th, 2014 | Posted by Jim Thacker


Autodesk has made its software available free to schools worldwide, as well as to students and teachers. Its educational licence forbids use for commercial work, but the tools themselves are not feature-restricted.

The company has enabled students to download its software for free for many years, but previously placed more restrictions on schools themselves.

Its Education Community site specifies that the offer is “limited to Autodesk approved education institutions in certain markets”, but a post on the MaxStation blog confirms that it applies to every country.

The offer applies to the products in Autodesk’s Entertainment Creation Suite, including 3ds Max and Maya, as well as Smoke and Flame.
