So they've updated things at work finally and now I need to figure out how to import my MDT files into Inventor Fusion 2012. What direction or clues can you provide help with. This seems like a big jump in software to me. Thanks!
You can't get MDT files directly into Fusion. You will have to make a detour via Inventor.
Assuming that you installed Fusion as part of the Autodesk® Product Design Suite 2012, I think the only thing you need to do is download the MDT version that is compatible with Inventor 2012 release from www.autodesk.com/mdt
Import your MDT dwg into Inventor first. Then open the resulting IAM files in Fusion.
Is there a reason why you want to go to Invento Fusion and not Inventor?

Fusion is what they installed on my machine along with some Autocad stuff. I wasn't involved in their selection process and frankly am not up to date on the features of the current offerings. I will need to find out exactly what package they purchased and determine if I can just have Inventor which sounds like what I should want. Stay tuned.
