My reseller asked me to fax front/back copy of my credit card and ID for subscription renewal

Is this something businesses usually ask for?
This seems like an incredible personal security risk. Like if there was an infomercial on how to not protect your identity from theft, this would be it.

Has anyone else had to do something like this regarding a business type of transaction?

Tell them to get bent. The CC number is all they need, they dont need to know what you had for breakfast. The CC company pays if the purchase was infact made with a stolen card.

If they refuse, just email autodesk and complain, they'll get their ideas straight in no time.
