    I know what your thinking, were pirates and can get this for free anyways, but this is just too good to be true.

    I recently found out about an incredible deal that Autodesk is offering with their products. On students.autodesk.com, Autodesk is now offering their products FREE OF CHARGE to students. (I’m not entirely sure if this means only college students; high school students may give it a try as well. I ‘think’ the only requirement is that you have a school email address.) It seems almost too good to be true, but the products that they offer include the following:

    3D Studio Max
    Maya 2011
    MotionBuilder
    Mudbox
    Sketchbook Pro
    3D Studio Max Design
    Softimage
    Showcase
    AutoCAD
    AutoCAD Architecture
    AutoCAD Civil 3D
    AutoCAD Electrical
    AutoCAD Freestyle
    AutoCAD Map 3D
    AutoCAD Mechanical
    AutoCAD MEP
    AutoCAD P and ID
    AutoCAD Raster Design
    AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite
    AutoCAD Structural Detailing
    Algor Simulation Professional
    Alias Automotive
    Ecotect Analysis
    Impression
    Inventor Professional
    Navisworks Manage
    Revit Architecture
    Revit Structure
    Robot Structural Analysis Professional

    Is that incredible or what? They are all with a 13-month license (though some appear to be unlimited licenses?). These are all the MOST current versions of the products (Maya 2011, Softimage 2011, etc.). If you for some reason need an older version, you can get them, but they will have a shorter license (some 6-month). At this point I’m not sure if the 13-month licenses are renewable, but I would assume that as Autodesk releases new products (such as Maya 2012), these new products will be offered with their own 13-month licenses.

    If you are looking to take advantage of this awesome software deal, simply go to students.autodesk.com and click the “Register” link on the upper right corner of the screen. Fill out all the information and activate your account and wal-lah! Over 25 products are at your fingertips!

    But the free stuff doesn’t stop there! Autodesk has partnered with 3D World, the magazine, to provide an opportunity for learning to students. At http://autodesk.3dworldmag.com/ you can find tutorials for 3D techniques and tips for graduating students pursuing a career.

    If you would like yet another avenue for keeping updated with Autodesks free offers, you can check them out on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/Autodeskedcommunity.

    Thank you, Autodesk, for being so awesome!

    Ive known this for years [​IMG]

    the annoying thing is that the "CREATED ON A STUDENT EDITION" logo around the edge of prints

    if you get the phone code tho for you serial it will go away and will also be fully legitimate and get all the updates with no problems

    Sweet, my dad has a .edu email (he's a professor) that I use for all these things

    I've gotten all the Microsoft DreamSpark stuff (all the Visual Studio stuff), a Google Voice invite (free US calling and SMS!), and I'll grab this soon.

    I don't know what any of this is but I tried to register with my school email (high school) and we'll see if they accept it.

    Yeah, I downloaded Maya once. I then realized I would rather be using Blender.

    Are you serious? Blender is THE definition of unintuitive. I opened it once. Then i closed it.
    Sure Mayas front end is scary but once your in, its a lot of fun. And soooo much more powerful that blender.

    I didn't know this. Thanks. But my brother is too lazy, it is easier to pirate.
