If you install ACADM 2009, then you only have ACADM. If you skip that
install, then you can install MDT 2009 after youu have downloaded it from
Autodesk or ordered the free 2 DVD set online. However, you could use an
earlier MDT version with STEP

Dennis,

So what will you do in the 2009 world.
I just noticed that MDT did not install, only Acad and Mech.

>I always export from IV to Mechanical Desktop, then do a 3DSout.

why must there be extra steps? It seems that Inventor<=>Alias is getting
all the attention, but 3DS has been around forever and there are LOTS of
users. Why not Inventor<=>3DS?

So what ever happened to the direct importer's that 3DS had
for Inventor? I remember playing with that back around IV6
and whatever version of 3DS was out then. Did they stop
providing that (it was a plugin if I remember right)?
