Autodesk Inventor Best Seller For Fifth Consecutive Year

Global Community of Manufacturers Make Industry-Leading 3D Mechanical Design Application the Best Choice

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced that Autodesk Inventor software has extended its leadership status as the best selling 3D mechanical design software for the fifth consecutive year. Exceeding the licensed seat counts of all other competing 3D design software applications, Autodesk Inventor remains the software solution of choice for the manufacturing industry.

Demonstrating its industry leadership and product superiority, Autodesk Inventor software continues rapid adoption by designers and engineering teams looking to leverage their expertise with AutoCAD software while taking advantage of the superior 3D modeling and functional design capabilities found only in Autodesk Inventor.

"Autodesk is pleased with the continued adoption of Autodesk Inventor software, the best-in-class solution that enables global manufacturers to experience a significant return on their investment while getting high-quality products to market faster," said Robert "Buzz" Kross, vice president of Autodesk's Manufacturing Solutions Division. "Autodesk Inventor software stands alone in helping customers enjoy the richness of 3D without losing investments and resources from existing 2D work. While we celebrate this success, we remain focused on continuing to deliver even greater value to our global customers."

There are many reasons why Autodesk Inventor continues to be the best selling 3D mechanical design software, including:

     --   It is designed to fully utilize both 2D drawings and 3D modeling
          capabilities in an easy and intuitive design environment, making it
          the best choice for AutoCAD users
     --   It offers unparalleled integrity and compatibility between 2D
          AutoCAD DWG files and 3D Autodesk Inventor models
     --   It is the only software application to provide leading-edge
          functional design capabilities so that customers can create design
          based on the functional requirements of a product before they commit
          to complex model geometry
     --   It delivers built-in, easy-to-implement data management tools
     --   It institutes disciplined methods for sharing design data across the
          manufacturing process

Precision Systems Engineering, a new Autodesk Inventor customer, is a full service firm that offers professional engineering services in the disciplines of civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, process and controls. With Autodesk Inventor software, the company is able to deliver designs in less time with fewer revisions -- from a single, integrated environment. "At Precision Systems Engineering, we partner with our customers to accelerate their time to market for new products, so the designs need to be right the first time. Autodesk Inventor helps us achieve this goal," said Tom Strottner, Manager of Mechanical and Civil/Structural Design, Precision Systems Engineering. "Autodesk Inventor software is a welcome edition to our tool set, as it works well with the other Autodesk products we use, and is best suited for our large machine/assembly projects. The application enables us to provide value to our customers, resulting in our decision to expand our use of Autodesk Inventor across our design operations."

Enabling the Global Manufacturing Community to Turn Ideas into Reality

Autodesk Inventor enables faster time to market, enhances ability to communicate and share design data across global teams and is easy to deploy and learn. Autodesk recently hosted its first Autodesk Inventor User Conference in Korea, attracting more than 500 customers and channel partners. The company continues to sponsor similar events around the world, including manufacturing-specific community gatherings recently held in Italy and across the United States.

    true.... if you only count 3D CAD seats Pro/engineer is the market leader.... and if you ask the big boys at autodesk they will tell you that inventer only has a small footprint in the market compared with pro/e 35%, catia 30% and ug 25%
    Inventor 18%.... and fallig

    On whos data is this claim based? It reads more like an advertisement than an objective review. Inventor is an OK product, but there are many others that are better.

    Sounds to me like an advertising blurb.
    I have used Inventor since it came out. It will do some neat things, but it can be a very unstable platform for handling large assemblies and program compatability with the PC's you find in the average small to medium size firms.
    Inventor still has a long way to go to be on par with some of the other industry CAD programs.
    Autodesk really needs to get some experienced field Engineers into the bush and see whats happening in the real world. Their program is designed and built by programers who don't have a lot of real world engineering experience.

    autoCAD for mechancial design - give me a break
    try looking at Pro/Engineer they will beat any Autodesk product into the ground for mechanical design
    why don't you look to Gartner or another group for real industyr numbers - eg best sellers

    I did not see any mention that this leading 3D software is bundled with the leading 2D package AutoCAD. Lets see....if I saturate the market by letting the world pirate my 2D software and then buundle my 3d in with upgrades......Hmmm.
