The Autodesk Design Institute 2010 (ADI) Agreement brings to the University of Florida a powerful suite of software products designed to work with and enhance AutoCAD, Autodesk' s graphical design and drafting software. These products include software and information for the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction fields. Information on each product can be found by following the links above.
The ADI Agreement
The Autodesk Design Institute (ADI) agreement is a lease license agreement managed by the University of Florida's Software Licensing Services (SLS). UF is restricted to a set number of licenses each year. All Autodesk licenses are metered by SLS's FlexLM license server. Under the Autodesk license agreement, the "pool of licenses" is shared among the departments participating in the license. All products in the Autodesk Education Master Suite are available to all contributors. Should any individual use Autodesk in a detrimental manner that would deny other users use of the software under normal conditions, Software Licensing Services reserves the right to deny access until the issue can be resolved.
We are currently licensed for the Autodesk Education Master Suite. The suite includes: AutoCAD®, Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® Inventor® Professional, Autodesk® 3ds Max®, AutoCAD® Architecture, AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, AutoCAD® Electrical, AutoCAD® Map 3D, AutoCAD® Mechanical, AutoCAD® MEP, AutoCAD® P and ID, AutoCAD® Plant 3D, AutoCAD® Raster Design, AutoCAD® Structural Detailing, Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design, Autodesk® Alias® Automotive, Autodesk® Alias® Design, Autodesk® Ecotect® Analysis, Autodesk® Green Building Studio®, Autodesk® Impression (download only), Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler, Autodesk® Inventor® Publisher, Autodesk® Maya®, Autodesk® MotionBuilder®, Autodesk® Mudbox®, Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage, Autodesk® Quantity Takeoff, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, Autodesk® Revit® Structure, Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis Professional, Autodesk® Showcase®, Autodesk® Simulation CFD, Autodesk® Simulation Moldflow® Adviser Ultimate, Autodesk® Simulation Multiphysics, Autodesk® SketchBook® Designer, Autodesk® Smoke® for Mac OS X, Autodesk® Softimage®, Autodesk® T_Splines Plug_in for Rhino, and Autodesk® tsElements Plug_in. The list of products within the ADI agreement can change from licensing period to licensing period.
Single (off network) installations of Autodesk software is not allowed. However, under special circumstance single installation can be arranged. Such requests must come from department license managers (department liaisons) and is only allowed when the computer system cannot authenticate with SLS's FlexLM.
Participating departments agree to pay a yearly renewal fees to support the licensing agreement. The ADI agreement fee structure is based on one of two fee arrangements. 1) A department may purchase one license for each computer on which the software is installed or 2) a department/college may pay a fee based on unlimited installations of the Autodesk Suite within a department/college. Any department or college can participate on the basis of a department/college fee structures however the licensing manager should call SLS to determine the fee.
Termination of Agreement
Participating departments may withdraw from this agreement at anytime. However, any department withdrawing from the agreement must remove all Autodesk software acquired through the agreement at the end of the licensing period.
Autodesk software may be used at the University of Florida by AUTHORIZED END USERS (full time or part time enrolled student, faculty member, or employees) for ACADEMIC USE (including administrative, facilities planning, research, and teaching). Home use of the Autodesk software is not allowed on personal computers.
How to Participate
Only colleges, departments, and offices of the University of Florida can participate in the ADI agreement.
New installs of the Autodesk software, either added to an existing license or a new license, must be registered with Software Licensing Services. This registration can be sent either before or after the install, but must be sent in order to make it a legal installation.
Special Note: Any department or office within the College of Design, Construction and Planning, College of Engineering, and Center for Instructional and Research Computing Activities (CIRCA) (see list) can use the software suite without further donations. However, the license application form and product registration form must be submitted.
Obtaining the Software
To obtain a license, media, and additional information, print out the Autodesk Order Form and follow the instructions within. Only offices, departments, and colleges of the University of Florida can place orders. Administration of the license and its distribution is managed by Software Licensing Services.
Once the order forms have been filled out, the software can be ordered using the
"Place an Order" tab found above. The order forms should be attached to your order.
