Wasn't it about this time last year that the MAC version was pre-announced officially?
Aren't they due for an annual, and significant, upgrade (first version lacked many core AutoCAD essentials)?
Is Linux a viable corporate business desktop OS? I've not seen it outside back-of-office anywhere yet.

Maybe they are going to anounce a "Pen & Touch" version of AutoCAD using this type of stuff >> http://youtu.be/9sTgLYH8qWs

Or what would be nice would be if they merged AutoCAD with Inventor :smileyhappy:

Because I'm in a state of SEVERE DEPRESSION right now because I've just started working for a company that does all modelling in plain AutoCAD using dumb solids (no Inventor) and they're not prepared to use it because they're afraid of change. :smileymad:

 

I think if AutoCAD could at least open and insert native Inventor models it would make my task of convincing them to use Inventor easier.

Hi Frank,

Maybe you should give Inventor Fusion a try... it is part of AutoCAD 2012:

Thankyou Luciane.

I haven't used Fusion very much but from what I've seen I don't think it can create large assembly's of 3D parts, piping runs or frame generator models?

Forget Fusion. (at least until you are a MCAD Pro) (not that it is hard to use - the problem is it is too easy to create garbage)

It should have been a permanent Technology Preview and never a released product.
