    Inventor Fusion?

    Anyone know what Inventor Fusion is and why would I use it? Saw that it came with the AutoCAD Arch installation and I'm not sure why.

    Inventor Fusion is kinda like a marriage between an easy-to-use fast tool like Sketchup and a 'heavier' solid MCAD style modeler like Inventor Suite.

    It's kind of the solid modeling companion to Sketchbook Pro, which is also included.

    We've worked a little bit with it and it's a neat little tool for modeling up ideas quickly once you get used to it. It's good for some industrial design stuff and some early design stuff.

    You could also use it more towards the end of the project if you needed to make solid models of something that's a pain to do in Revit, like custom spider fittings for glass or something along those lines.

    We haven't used it much, however, for we just turn to Revit for 90% of what we do, and the 10% we don't do in Revit we do in Blender instead most of the time. However, if we were designing more mechanical things or things that were going to be fabricated using a different process than what we do now I could see us using it more.

      Thanks Jeffrey. I'll have to give it a go when I get some free time. Did you say Sketchbook Pro is included as well? I didn't see that one...

          When I was looking at the Suites, I thought that Sketchbook Pro was included in all of them, but I could totally be wrong there.

          Sketchbook Pro is a great tool. It's something I totally didn't think I needed ("I've got Photoshop, why do I need this little drawing tool?!?") but once I started using it I find I use it all the time now.

            Yeah, I love Sketchbook Pro. I got it once I got a large Intuos digitizer - and I mostly use it for sketching/drawing in my free time. Even got the Android app of the same name.

            If the entire office had access to it though - that would be sweet.

              Sketchbook and Showcase both come with all versions of the new Building Design Suite. So yes, if you change your licensing over to a new Suite, you will get them. If you are on the Revit Suite from last year, you can switch to the Premium level of the Suite and you will also get ALL the Revit's and 3DS Max as well.

              That would be suite.... :-)
