That actually might not be possible from a licensing standpoint. Consider, how does a suite license know which products it will work with? If they come from different development silos there may be logistical barriers to getting that suite license to recognize all the projects you are picking (some products may not be suite-licenseable). Can't list them separately either - the suite licenses are not a 1+1 scheme.
Oh, no argument there, Dean. I am free to buy Revit MEP and AutoCAD MEP by themselves, rather than taking being shifted into the Design Suite Premium.
Of course, as long as I'm no longer being offered the package I had (MEP Suite), I'd rather pout about the new package not adding as much to MY tasks as they would to someone in a different branch of our industry. I'll make use of, to a small extent, the products that came with it, but, they're not as useful as some of what I'd request in a bundle.
I think it's a price break sort of thing. It's the same as with the cable companies. They have access to the satellites with all of the stations, but they bundle them as they see fit. We have to choose a bundle and get whatever channels they say. I like the idea of Suites from a pricing standpoint. The individual packages would be MUCH more expensve as standalones.
But, yes, I agree. It's a choice and always has been. But a little more flexibilty wouldn't hurt my feelings. That's all I'm saying.
If you can't see the value in the suites, then you have a chance to opt out. Contact your reseller if you haven't received the email about that. I believe it is only possible through February 22nd.
I sure hope Mudbox is like totally free in this Autodesk PDS package. 1/2
I'm quite glad i didn't go down the suite road when my reseller offered it at their 'introductory' price. I just hope that Autodesk don't decide to start culling products that aren't sold as suites..
I resisted the offer last year to upgrade to a Civil 3D suite as the annual subscription is more and I don't really need all the bundled suite software. As long as Civil 3D can continue to be purchased "standalone" that's fine for me
