"I guess the positive way to look at it is that IV users are SO valuable

I'm still waiting for that day.. Just need to get rid of a few competing
PROfessional Engineering packages first...

Thanks all.  This is about what I
figured.  I guess I was trying to... I do not know...Give a gentle slap
on the side of the head of Marketing.  Maybe a wake up call is a nicer
way to say it.   <G>

Not at all....just suggesting a change in
procedure.  This same individual obviously has heard of SW....my question,
why not IV?

And now to open up the can of worms -

(IMHO)
With the release of IV6 (whenever the SP gets it to function properly),
Inventor will become a serious contender. Until now, it's been a better 3D
modeling tool than AutoCAD, but not up to par with the other true 3D design
packages out there. Sorry, but it was not what I would consider a full,
self contained package. I had to go back to AutoCAD to create
silk-screening, overlays and labels, not able to be shown on the solid
assembly. All kinds of tricks and workarounds were required to get the
labeling into a 3D environment. Now, IV6 (once SP1 arrives) will eliminate
this need. I came this close (he holds up his hand with the thumb and index
finger a half centimeter apart) to switching over to SW! Now, IV6 has given
me hope!! Perhaps now, Inventor will finally become a real, big league
player, and nobody will have to ask "Inventor who?"
(and perhaps job opportunities will begin to appear for IV operators)

There are so many Solid modelers (many are decent) out there these days, I bet you would not be able to name them all. It is difficult to keep up. There are many engineers who just do not pay attention to the MCAD industry. They focus solely on their own tools they probably have used for years and have no interest in anything else. While I know this doesn't apply to the person you are dealing with, you might also be surprised by how many engineers simply choose not to, or are incapable of using solid modelers of other MCAD tools.

I think a lot of people are just 'users' of a particular product. They come
to work, do their job and go home. Some don't even have a computer at home
to play with. These people do not live outside of the box. They use what
software that is provided and that is all. They don't care to experiment
with other software and may not even have a say as to what software they
use. Then there are others that are constantly looking for a better,
faster, easier way to do the job. Just my observations, Jerry.....
