Autodesk Inventor no more a MID Range CAD Product
Its been days, since my posting here @ CADProfessor, yes it has many reasons and one for sure: definitely is that I was working on the Pre-release of Autodesk Inventor 2011, which has wide range of functionality. Of course I’m tight lipped because, I need to wait until March Third Week to vent out the information I’ve gathered.
This post is to make people aware of the wide range of functionality that Autodesk Inventor has added over the years to grow from a MID range CAD Product into a High End CAD Product. But what about the pricing structure., its quite more less than other High Range CAD Products like CATIA and other vertical CAD products.
Autodesk has made many acquisitions and updates to support and enhance Autodesk Inventor till date, few are listed below
February 24, 2004 Autodesk, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSK), the world's leading design software and digital content company, announced today an agreement to acquire certain assets of MechSoft, Inc., an Autodesk Inventor(R) Certified Applications Program partner and developer of the award-winning MechSoft product. This move advances Autodesk's goal of delivering engineering capabilities to the design department to help customers build products based on the concept of "functional design." Functional design is a new, more direct way to design in 3D. Autodesk plans to integrate key components of MechSoft's technology into future versions of Autodesk Inventor Series.
many more in the pipe line . . . if you carry out a Google search.
