If my subscription expires end of this month and Inventor 2014 comes out before then, do I get access to it? or does subscription center only allow one current release per year on subscription?

 

Thanks

Yes, you get one upgrade per release cycle. Your subs started after the last release, so you will get this one because the release date is within your subscription cycle

It doesn't appear to be. The whole Inventor 2014 section of the Wiki help isn't even live yet.

I should expand on this cause I would really like to have the Product Design Suite 2014, but then find out I am not going to get it!! Haha,

 

My employer purchased the software and subscription before I was hired. I don't know which product or suite he had on subscription but we only had Inventor and simulation 2011, then we got Inventor 2012 before our subscription expired(April 2012).

 

Our reseller contacted me in December and informed me that for $100 late fee+ $1300 subscription fee, we could re-subscribe and get Product design Suite Ultimate 2013, I then informed my employer this was a good deal, because at the time we were looking at purchasing AutoCAD Electrical which $5500. So we renewed our subscription and got PDSU 2013. I know with our current workflow and situation, my employer won't fork out $1300 just so 'Sean' can have new features in the software that we already have.

 

That's why I was curious if I was able to snag that new release of PDSU 2014 before end of April or is there a monitoring system that recognizes, that I already upgraded this year to 2013.

 


Thanks

Having used inventor since release 5, its going to be a hard sell to my boss this year to continue with subscription

 

"So you can now draw a slot" he will ask with one eyebrow raised

I was just thinking about how Microsoft doesn't release a new OS or Office suite every year. There is gaps of years in between releases and they still sell software not stop. In between releases of course there are many updates and service packs, but that is what keeps the consumers "happy" until a new release comes out.

 

Why doesn't AutoDesk work like this,

 

My guess is they are not concerned with the smaller type companies who have minimal active licences and have difficult times explaining their managers why they should stay on subscription and keep upgrading to a new version every year.

 

Just makes more sense to release a version, allow users to actually use it, releases updates, hotfixes, service packs, add-ons, and deal with switching to a new release every 2-3 years.

 

I agree with last post, I personally would find is handy to create slots with a click instead of old method, and other little tweaks and mods that make the software more appealing to us designers, but to management, unless you can prove your going to save the company thousands of $$$ with those new features, they aren't going to spend the $1300 or whatever a subscription cost is.

Anything about how Inventor runs on your machine???

 

splitting up the calculations, phsyical modeling, renderings onto different processors instead of running everything off one?

When I consider the amount of revenue I've generated the company I work for using just one seat, $1300 is a small price to pay for updates. Plus for us in 2014 it appears the Product Design Suite Premium has been upgraded to Inventor Professional, and some of the additional features will be useful to our Engineering department.

 

Of course everybody has to make that decision based on their needs and what management will allow. Thankfully the subscription price has never been an issue for the company I work for.

Not only does the suite now include Professional, but also as of 4/1/13, subscription customers with Basic Support will be upgraded to Advanced Support. Advanced support includes phone support 24x5 and remote desktop assistance, plus other benefits.

To avoid calling my re-seller and stirring the pot there, does anyone know the cost difference between Premium and Ultimate?

 

I typically use Inventor and AutoCAD and AutoCAD Electrical, I am no where near ready to use the other programs included in the Ultimate suite.

 

Thanks!
