Revit – AutoCAD Software Rental Licensing | 3 Financial Advantages

View Daniel Hughes April BIM Article for Sourceable.net: Three Winning Advantages of BIM Software Rental Licensing

Three Winning Advantages of BIM Software Rental Licensing

My April Sourcceable.net article highlights three financial situations; where current BIM-CAD software licensing; became an extreme financial liability. It recently affected hundreds of firms and thousands of design, engineering and construction professionals.

BIM and CAD software licensing has been transitioning toward subscription-only programs. These programs are best described as pay-as-you-go, software rental, subscription or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) programs.

In 2016, Autodesk Subscription Licensing Programs begin a major transition to BIM-CAD software rental or pay-as-you-go licensing programs. As new licensing is incrementally rolled out, this model will eventually become the standard software delivery-access process for design professionals.

If Revit-AutoCAD software rental licensing had been available prior to 2009 –the financial  and employment impact on the AECO market would have been different.

These 3 perpetual license situations affected hundreds of my clients, colleagues and my career.

  1. More Revit \ BIM Software Licenses Than Employed Staff
  2. Long-term License Costs for Short-Term Team Projects
  3. Revit \ BIM Software Start-Up Costs Almost Prohibitive

After I highlight the affects of perpetual licensing of these 3 situations, I review how the availability of  Rental \ Subscription Licensing could have avoided the financial chaos:

Autodesk Licensing Over 30 Years – It’s Time for a Transition

My first PC CAD software license was AutoCAD 1.x (1984) and my first BIM software license was Revit 4.0 (2002) The AutoCAD software was a perpetual license but the Revit license was an annual subscription (rental) license.

The AutoCAD perpetual license worked 24\7\365 –and allowed us to choose when or if we upgraded to the next software version. The Revit subscription (rental) license worked for 12 months and then required payment to run for another 12 months.

There was the infamous AutoCAD 2.5x software license; that included a hardware lock (licensing) device. The device connected to the computer’s parallel port (printer) to verify that it was a legal license. Without the hardware lock, the CAD software license would not to run. Eventually, Autodesk issued authentication codes with software licenses; that needed to be entered at the time of installation.

Revit 2016 – AutoCAD 2016 Software Licensing | Reducing Cost of Ownership

My Revit subscription (rental) license periodically “pinged” the Revit Corporate web license server to authenticate my laptop license. However, a few times when Revit tried to authenticate the license; I was not connected to the internet.

In those situations; the Revit license operated only in “Demo Mode” and could not save changes to the project file. I needed to connect my laptop to the internet to authenticate my license to obtain “Edit Mode” functionality for my project.

Eventually, Autodesk switched Revit to a perpetual license –but maintained both the annual version updates and the upward-only file compatibility process started by Revit.

As Autodesk transitions its software to the cloud to offer the benefits of Revit Cloud  Computing –rental software licensing delivers 3 financial and strategic benefits:
