Need software like AutoCAD Inventor

Can anyone recommend some software that is like Inventor and works within AutoCAD 2002 but doesn't cost as much? What is the advantage of using this program over just straight AutoCAD?
Thanks in advance, Carolyn

Hi Carolyn; I received a CD in the mail several days ago from Alibre Design. It is a free demo, and it claims to be a good substitute for Solildworks. The price they quote is $695.00. Go on their site and ask them to send you a demo,... nothing to lose.... Guido De Angelis
