We are looking at possibly upgrading to Inventor 7 from MDT6. I have done some basic modelling with Inventor to try it and watched the presentation from the Autodesk support team. Yes it does seem to be an improvement on MDT in some respects although it obviously means learning a new system. My question is, if our team has to learn a new system is Inventor the one to choose or is something else more suitable. We would like to be able to do presentations eg. animations which I know Inventor handles but have had no experience in any other software of this type. We design and manufacture amongst other things mobility vehicles and I keep hearing Pro E and solid works mentioned but do not know of anyone who is using it to give a valid comparison or pros and cons. Any views on any Apps. would be appreciated.
