    Rubbish. But still, it's an alright idea I guess.

    You may want to ask them for clarification on that, I believe it may mean one computer at a time (windows license agreement anyone?)

    In which case it's totally reasonable.

    It depends if your buys the autodesk suite or whatever. If they do, then yes. IF they dont, then try signing up, it cant hurt :p

    I used to have the 3dsmax student suite, but I never really got used to it. Not really worth the cost, even for the student version imo.

    Autodesk Student community doesnt provide full licences for 3dsmax, you have to deal with a 6 month version...

    Good thing the only thing that I actually need for autodesk student community is Inventor. Project Lead The Way FTW.

    Wait, seriously?! Oh, I just kinda skipped over those links assuming you were advertising the $100 a year package. :blushing:

    Should I explain to you why this statement is wrong, or do you think you can figure it out by yourself?

    I think that the 'crap' was intentional.

    Autodesk products tend to be released annually.

    It's still for non commercial learning purposes though, right?

    Oh, duh, obviously! :rolleyes:
    Having never used an Autodesk product, I should have just known that.

    So, how long do you intend to remain a student to take advantage of this?

    Look, I am in high school, so I have quite a few more years to take advantage of Autodesk's philanthropy.

    Yeah, doing a little bit of research on something before you post is really a ridiculous thing to expect.
