Autodesk is practically giving away Inventor Series

Now you can get it for 50% off: $1,995. I know Inventor is not quite up to
par yet, but for that price, getting AutoCAD, MDT and Invetor, it's a deal
that can't be beat!

If it'll do everything you need efficiently, it's a good deal. If it won't, how many billable hours does it take to make up a difference of, say, $3,000?
Shucks, I might look into it. If they'll give me an upgrade for about $250 I'll go for it.

The $1995 is an upgrade price (depends on what you own now).

Yup. I didn't see that on

until I clicked on Offer Details. Also noted is that you have to buy a year of subscription service as well which will give you 2 years total. Still not that bad of a deal.

Autodesk and SW do this to each other on a regular basis. We took advantage of a similar deal when we added our 2nd and 3rd seats, way back when.

Richard,
Thank you for pointing this out. This is basically the best deal you can get if you already own something like AutoCAD or MDT and are looking to upgrade. Plus, you MUST commit to 2 years of subscription service or it's not even available. This isn't for new customers, but only for those existing customers that are upgrading. Not as much of a deal as the marketing hype makes it sounds. Be careful and always read the fine print gentlemen.
From their website:
Customers must purchase the 2nd year of subscription with the purchase order to qualify for the promotional bundle. This entitles you to a total of 2 years subscription.
Note: Existing subscription customers are exempt from purchasing a 2 year subscription.

Kind of like purchasing a service contract with one of the phone companies. Wonder what the penalties are for breaking the contract?

Autodesk has to rate as one of the worst companies when it comes to customer relations and service. Way back when we had a seat of mechanical desktop and a lightening strike took out the hardware lock. We asked if we could buy a replacement lock they said no you will have to buy a new seat. We said we will send in the old lock just tell us the minor fee for a replacement lock, once again the idiots at Autoclueless said we dont care it will still cost you a new seat. Thats when i made a decision to switch our company to a better product and better company overall for our CAD. I have been overall very happy with SW.

That's ridiculous. Glad I don't do business with them anymore.
