The Mech-Q Service & Maintenance Contract (SMC)

What is SMC?

When you purchase Mech-Q Lifetime you automatically receive 12 months of free upgrades and support (we call this the SMC or Service Maintenance Contract).

After your 12 months of SMC expires, you have the option to either extend it or use the current version of Mech-Q from this time forward. Mech-Q is AutoCAD version specific, so when moving to a new AutoCAD version, a Mech-Q upgrade will be required if not on SMC.

Note: Monthly and Yearly Mech-Q subscriptions include SMC at no extra cost – you can upgrade freely so long as your subscription is active.

What’s included in the SMC?

  • Premium email and phone support. This includes remote assistance if needed.
  • Upgrades from one Mech-Q product version to a newer product version (Eg: Mech-Q v3.36 to Mech-Q v4.0)
  • Upgrading your Mech-Q AutoCAD (Eg: Mech-Q from AutoCAD 2017 to Mech-Q for AutoCAD 2018)

How much will extending the SMC cost?

To renew or extend the agreement, the cost is calculated as a percentage (%) of the normal price of the Mech-Q software product originally purchased. The chart below explains how fees are calculated.
