inventor is really the next level up from mechanical design, so from that u can guess its really primarily designed for (3D) engineering parts, like gearboxes and the like. never got the chance to use it myself :( but i know its a little tricky to get used to at 1st since its quite a different setup to autocad (which is primarily used 4 architechture). autocad is the most user friendly program ever invented! so u will probably just have to bear with it until u become proficient, i did that with VizRender. definately try and get of tutorials, they will make it so much easier to understand :D

R u sure ? I would say Inventor is more user friendly than acad, defintely.
Inventor is for Product Design, Manufacturing design eg a production line.
It's parametric when modelling eg change a size in a part sketch and the model updates. It animates as well and you constrain parts together.
Look at the Inventor demos on the autodesk site. Send off for a demo cd.
You won't go back to Acad unless you're in architecture.

I agree with Nick, Inventor so mush more user friendly, and you will be surprised on how quick you can pick it up. 1 problem is training costs, its not cheap, but saying that it is worth it. You will need to go to college if you want the best out of Inventor, and as for saving time and money, the answer changes from job to job. Lets say that once a model is passed of in Inventor then toolmakers and frabricators can work quicker in building the product with minimum errors and confusion. Good luck.

i learned in solidworks and used to be a die hard sw junkie. after i learned inventor, i doubt i will be going back to sw unless i am REQUIRED to do so. It is so much more intuitive and it has so many features to accelerate workflow. im very happy with it.

Yeah, agreed. I don't think autodesk really push that point.
