AutoDesk INVENTOR

Did anyone happen to partake in the live meeting about INVENTOR today? If so, what your feelings about it? I think INVENTOR is pretty much the same as Solidworks.

I recently went for a product demo at an Autodesk reseller. Yep, It’s just like Solidworks. It’s like Autodesk is trying to compete with IDSs Solidworks market just for the sake of competing.

how long has this been around
never heard of it
my friend just models in normal autocad
why do they have this?
especially now that they bought alias!
they did buy out alias?
no merger etc

I agree completely. I have used both, and Inventor just seems to lack the things Solidworks has going for it. It seems Solidworks works in a more basic and simple manner and Inventor took the same tools and twisted them around to make it different, but inherently more difficult and annoying to operate.
