Frequently Asked Questions

If I send or receive a DWG file from someone, can I use F/X CAD?
Yes. F/X CAD is AutoCAD 2014, so it's going to have the same exact capabilities.

What if I need to work from home or off my laptop?
We have you covered! F/X CAD is for a single activation, however it can be installed on multiple computers. Using our License Transfer tool, you can move your license from your home computer, to your laptop, to your work computer.

What about upgrade costs?
You can upgrade your F/X CAD to the next version for only $250. As long as you keep your Land F/X or Irrigation F/X license current, you do not have to upgrade your F/X CAD every year. If you decide to skip years it will take five years to accrue up to the full retail price, where you would just repurchase a new F/X CAD license.

What about my AutoLISP routines?
If you have certain AutoLISP features that you use, chances are, we can recreate them and fold them into Land F/X.

Will F/X CAD be able to open old AutoCAD drawings?
Autodesk is currently maintaining full downward file compatibility. Even drawings created before 2000 will open.
