FAQs

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

Forge subscriptions purchased via our online store are set to auto-renew. As part of this auto-renewal, you will be charged and your account will be credited with an additional 100 Cloud Credits (this can be changed in your account management dashboard). If your access is not set to auto-renew or you have purchased Forge via a purchase order, the primary account holder will be notified by email when your subscription is due for renewal.

Do my Cloud Credits roll over from year to year?

Cloud Credits expire after 12 months. Your Forge subscription renews every 12 months for at the current rate, which includes 100 additional Cloud Credits.

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

The Cloud Credits used by Forge are 'shared' Cloud Credits – they can be consumed by any Autodesk service purchased under the same contract as your Forge subscription (and vice-versa).

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 for AutoCAD is priced at 4 Cloud Credits per processing hour (which breaks down to 1 Cloud Credit per 15 processing minutes). If you run a WorkItem that consumes 5 minutes of processing time, you will see no cloud credit charge. If you run another WorkItem that consumes 10 minutes of processing time, you will see the charge of 1 cloud credit on your account (5 min. + 10 min. = 15 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’m 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.
