Simulation CFD 2013: You only need to download it once!

Just a quick note for Autodesk Simulation CFD 2013 customers, you can purchase an a la carte license to connect to:

  • PTC® CoCreate®
  • Siemens® NX™
  • Siemens® Solid Edge®
  • SolidWorks®
  • SpaceClaim® 

In the Subscription Center > Downloads area, you will only need to download Autodesk Simulation CFD once!  


In this example, Autodesk Simulation CFD Connection for Parasold and Pro/Engineer are exactly the same.  Autodesk Simulation CFD has all the Connection "plug-ins" installed at the same time and the license will allow you to connect to the other vendors as necessary.   The downloads in the Subscription Center must have a download for each of your purchased items but because download for Autodesk Simulation CFD is all inclusive, it is not necessary to download all the other Connection "plug-ins".

Did you know Autodesk is sending customers 4 or 5 boxes all the same? One box for Advanced, one for ACIS connection and one for every connection the customer had.
Not very green actually and very confusing.
You say we need to download only one and i say send just one :)

WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to forward your comments to the Subscription Team.

This is done on purpose since each box has a unique serial number on it. Not green, but the only option available. I believe it is only the simulation products that can have multiple serial numbers, so there isn't much interest in changing the process. It does add to more of the confusion on which serial numbers you need when you install!
