FAQs

Does my Forge subscription and associated pre-paid Cloud Credits automatically renew after 12 months?

No, at this time Forge subscriptions do not automatically renew.

Do my Cloud Credits roll over from year to year?

Cloud Credits expire after 12 months from date of purchase.

Can I use the Cloud Credits associated with my Forge account towards other Autodesk consumption services?

No, not at this time.

Can I sign up for multiple Forge offerings under the same account?

No, you may only register for Forge once under one account. However, you can create as many Forge Apps as you like from that account.

If the Design Automation API is priced per CPU hour, how are partial hours charged?

For all Forge APIs, fractional Cloud Credit charges are accrued, and only deducted from your account (in integer amounts) when a full CPU hour has been consumed. For example, the Design Automation API is priced at 2 Cloud Credits per processing hour (which breaks down to 1 Cloud Credit per 30 processing minutes). If you run a WorkItem that consumes 15 minutes of processing time, you will see no Cloud Credit charge. If you run another WorkItem that consumes 15 minutes of processing time, you will see the charge of 1 Cloud Credit on your account (15 min. + 15 min. = 30 min. = 1 Cloud Credit).

Does Autodesk offer special Forge pricing for students and startups?

At the moment, we do not offer special pricing for students and startups. We recommend you sign up for a free trial if you want to experiment with Forge.

I am an Autodesk Enterprise customer. How do I use Forge with my TokenFlex agreement?

Please contact your Customer Success Manager to discuss adding Forge to your TokenFlex account. Forge will consume Tokens at a rate of one token equals one Cloud Credit.

What is the storage limit for my Forge account?

The Forge trial includes up to 5GB of storage. A full Forge subscription currently has no storage limit for files uploaded as part of a Forge workflow.

Can I use Flex Tokens to pay for my Forge consumption?

No, you may not use Flex Tokens for Forge consumption at this time. Forge will continue to use Cloud Credits until further notice. If you have questions please contact forge.sales@autodesk.com.

 

However, EBA customers only can use Token Flex tokens to pay for Forge consumption. Please note that Flex Tokens and Token Flex are two different Autodesk currencies.
