Now that Project Freewheel has been updated to make use of the Autodesk Labs login, Labs registration is becoming more important. We've gotten a request or two from users who wish to reset their passwords. This can be done by users without Autodesk employee intervention:
When you visit this page:
You enter your Autodesk Labs user name.
You see a message on the HTML page:
An email with instructions on how to proceed with resetting your password has been sent to the email address you provided when registering for Autodesk discussion groups. The email will contain a password reset 'token' that is valid for 72 hours only, so don't delay! Please check your email in a few minutes to proceed.
Autodesk Labs send you an email that looks like:
From: Discussion Support

Subject: Password reset request
We have received a request to reset your password.
If you have asked to reset your password, follow the
instructions below. If you do not want to reset your password, simply disregard this message.
To reset your Autodesk Discussion Group password, you can either:
- Click the following URL:
and enter the following information into the fields provided:
Do not reply to this email. You can provide feedback to the discussion groups at http://www.autodesk.com/discussion-feedback.
You can then click on the email hyperlink or visit the discussion group and enter the supplied values.
So in the unlikely event that you need to reset your password, you can make use of this process. Your Autodesk Labs login allows Project Freewheel to associate your designs and your collaboration sessions with you. Without the login, these items would just be out there in the ether.
