    I wonder if the Inventor people disparage AutoCAD as much as we do?

    Autocad 2012 can import a variety of file formats like Catia, Solidworks, Rhino etc, except RVT's. The entertainment suites as usual looks very interesting. You can switch with a single click of a button between the products. The new Revit features shown on the webcast, where shown at AU2010 too, for those who have missed it.

    While I think the Suites sound awesome, I hope there is a decent upgrade path this time.

    When the Max + Revit suite came out a year or so ago we looked into it, and it cost almost as much to 'upgrade' to it as Max cost outright, even tho we're on subscription and everything.

    Also I don't really need AutoCAD. A Revit-Inventor-Showcase-Max/Mudbox suite would be better for us, some weird hybrid of industrial and architectural design.

    Is cool that there will be an all-in-one option for Revit now where you can get all three flavors at once. We don't need it, but I've known people who certainly do!

    If they had a clue how to be customer focused, they would do something like "Make your own Suite" where "Every extra product means 5% of all products." So I can get Revit, add Inventor to my suite, and both are 5% off, add Showcase and all three are 10% off, add Max and all four are 15% off. That is initial price, and subscription price as long as all of them are on subscription. Simple pricing, every customer gets the suite they want, no need to pay marketing hacks to come up with a ton of horribly Microsofty suite names. Everyone wins.

    agreed! My Suite would be Revit, AutoCAD, Inventor. Yeah, sorry, I'm still an Acad guy. Can't give up 20+ years of drawing lines
