I'm sorry I can't answer your question about Inventer, but I'm very interested in the responses that you get. I have been using Solid Edge for about 4 years and have recently become a reseller. I have found that when we use a piece of software for a period of time we become increasinlgy comfortable with it and develop a certain bias, I admit I have a bias toward Solid Edge. There is a huge bias toward Autodesk products because AutoCad has been out there so long. My question is for those that have recently evaluated different 3-D packages and feel they can offer an unbiased opinion. What are factors that are most important to you when choosing ( initial cost, maintence cost, training cost, ease of use, compatability with other software, etc.)? Also, what aspect of 3-D CAD software in general do you find lacking, in other words , what do you wish that they could do that they can't do yet.

  I'd be interested to know if any of you are using Autodesk Inventor; a solid modelling design package.

  I'd like to know what applications you are using it for, and your opinions of the package.

  I'd especially like to here from anyone who has benchmarked this software package against other packages such a Solidworks.
