One-hour webinars made specifically to help students get an edge.
This webinar is an introduction to Land F/X and the Planting F/X tools, geared toward students and educators. Attendees will learn what Land F/X is and what it can do. In addition, presenter Amanda Berry will lead a live audience of landscape architecture students through a presentation packed with real-life professional examples of how Land F/X is used to create construction documents that get the plan built, and why these capabilities are important for their own work. Listen as the attending landscape architecture students in the audience have their own questions answered.
Tailored for students, this academic planting project–oriented workflow will include information on how to start your project, configure the best settings for success, and transport your project and drawings between your laptop and a computer lab installation.

How long does the free Academic License last?
You will have to renew after each academic year. The license will not be available during the summer. Uninstalling or reinstalling is not necessary – just return to this page after your summer break, and apply for your school's latest Support ID.
Can the Academic License be used for an internship or other professional setting?
No. Academic Licenses of Land F/X may only be used for schoolwork or teaching purposes at approved universities or institutions, not internships or employment. We do not rent licenses or offer monthly license options for interns. However, we do offer a 30% internship discount on the purchase of Land F/X licenses (details and conditions below).
What are the details of the 30% student internship discount?
Firms employing student interns may purchase Land F/X licenses at the 30% discount under the following terms and conditions:
• The discount may be applied to as many Land F/X licenses as interns for whom the purchaser is able to provide proof of enrollment.
• Proof of enrollment consists of either a photo of the intern's current student ID or a copy of the intern's most recent class list. Land F/X reserves the right to approve or deny proof of enrollment.
• No other discounts may be applied to the internship discount, including ASLA discounts or additional sales or discounts of our software.
• The discount may not be applied toward renewal of Land F/X licenses – only toward new purchases of Land F/X or F/X CAD licenses
What qualifies a program to receive a free license?
A school must have a bachelor’s degree program for landscape architecture in order to qualify for the free Land F/X Academic license. Part-time programs will need to apply for a personal 30-day trial instead, and will eventually need to purchase.
My license says it's expired. Can I get an extension?
Academic Licenses expire at the beginning of summer, after exams. If you need to use Land F/X during the summer, you can get a free trial. Note that you’ll need to use your personal (non-school) email for the trial registration.
Can I still get the Academic License without an academic email address?
If you need (or want to use) Land F/X for a class but you don't have an academic email address, have your instructor contact us directly at email@example.com. If you are unable to convince your instructor to contact us, you can get a free trial. You might then want to visit your instructor during office hours to demonstrate how helpful the software is to what he or she is teaching.
Can I get an academic license of F/X CAD?
Not yet, but you can visit Autodesk's website to apply for the academic version of AutoCAD instead.
