I was just having a look on Autodesk website for something else and noticed a 15% off sale.
Autodesk Maya LT is only $204USD for a year.
I thought this might be of value for some as Maya and 3ds max are typical staples for 3d modelling.
Disclaimer: I use to work for an Autodesk reseller A LONG time ago. No longer affiliated with them directly, they just make great tools.
I was there when Autodesk bought Alias.
Got an AWESOME tshirt with 3DS Max, Maya and Motionbuilder when the Autodesk reps came to demo the new acquisition
