Sorry, I Didn’t Know . . . Free Autodesk Software for Schools


3DTeacher-Icon2_thumb_thumbFirst of all, I am sorry.  I don’t know how I missed it, but Autodesk is providing free 3 year licenses for schools.  ¿I thought it was only for the students?  I know it is only a 3 year license and then it is hard to go back to anything else, but it is still a free 3 year license to get your program off the ground.  And I am a bit biased, Maya is the only option. ~Cornell
