Re: River Analysis Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D / AutoCAD Map 3D

Dana has confirmed that the River Analysis capability is not part of the trial. Thank you for that.

 

For customers who are actively evaluating the Ultimate Suite, I am pretty sure we can figure out a way to get them the River Analysis files. The only wrinkle here would be in the River Analysis installer did not work for the trial version, but I doubt that.

 

In terms of differences from the Labs version, I do not believe there are any in the code itself other than the removal of the time-bomb. This is my guess. I have not heard that officially from the team. When a technology moves from the preview stage to Subscription Center, what does change is the level of commitment. Autodesk supports what is available in Subscription Center. Let's be honest, when it's a technology preview, and users encounter a problem, "Hey it's a free technology preview that was for feedback instead of production work." But when it is officially supported, that means that issues get addressed in updates like service packs. So although it may seem to you like nothing has changed, placing River Analysis in Subscription Center speaks volumes about its value to Autodesk and Autodesk customers.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or did Dona also have the IDS web pages updated to include a 3rd Note (***) indicating that this is only available in the Ultimate Subscription and did she also have it removed from the trial page?

 

I could have sworn the 3rd footnote was not there berfore this weekend... and it was included in the trial when I sent the links....

No Problem. Thanks. You should reconsider adding it to the 30 Day trial… or offering it as a separate 30 Day trial…. It’s not an easy thing to justify cost on for those of us who would only be upgrading for the River Analysis Extension…

 

No trial pretty much makes it impossible to justify the cost….

As far I knew, here was the plan:

 

  • AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 users: These users should make sure they have SP1 and can continue to use the tech preview until June 30. After that they should upgrade to Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2014.
  • AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 users: These users should upgrade to Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2014 right away.
  • AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 users: These users start off by purchasing Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2014.

So today looked in the Subscription Center and I found a River and Flood Analysis module for 2014:

Page not found error for me... but maybe because I don't have the Ultimate IDS?

Thank you for the alert. I have submitted a Tracker Request so our web team can make the correction.
