What is changing for Alias Automotive customers?
Alias Automotive 2015 was the final release of the Alias Automotive product. Alias AutoStudio has replaced Alias Automotive software.
When we released Alias AutoStudio 2015, buying a new licence or new maintenance plan contract for Alias Automotive was no longer an option. However, maintenance plan renewal for Alias Automotive remains on the price list to support the move from Alias Automotive to AutoStudio.
Why is Autodesk making this change?
Alias AutoStudio software lets you perform concept modelling, analysis, technical surfacing and visualisation. With extended workflow abilities, including VRED Design visualisation software (US site), Alias AutoStudio provides sketching, modelling, visualisation and analysis tools for the entire vehicle design process. From concept generation through Class-A surfacing, the software helps automotive companies produce design iterations quicker, reduce re-work and bring innovative vehicles to market faster.
What is the migration strategy?
Alias Automotive maintenance plan customers will be, or have already been, offered a zero-cost migration to Alias AutoStudio.
For Alias Automotive customers who are currently on subscription, there are still options to buy:
