Last summer, Revit had abandoned its monthly lease option and had gone to only two options: 1-year license @ $2,000 or full-license @ $4,000. I bought the 1-year license from Consulting for Architects in Boston. Now, the full-license option appears to have disappeared and I would need to purchase a brand-new 1-year license for $3,000 plus an-upfront 1-year subscription fee of $627 for a total of $3,600!!! (to be paid again and again and again...). AND I will not own a damn thing but will be indentured forever (to Autodesk) or dump the entire investment.
Does anyone know a better way? It's worse than renting an apartment. At least if you change places if the product doesn't hold up over time, you don't have to loose $3,000. Plus, what happens down the road if you skip a year? Start over? This is bull.
