Inventor Fusion is a free technology preview that enables creation of designs through intuitive direct manipulation tools. Our aim is to set a new standard for Assembly design, giving users greater control over designs without sacrificing productivity. Hopefully this technology preview will make it easier to open and edit 3D models from virtually any source and incorporate them into new or existing designs (such as in Autodesk Inventor). Your feedback will determine if we are correct in our thinking.
The current version of the technology preview for the Microsoft Windows platform expires on May 1. Planning is already in the works for what comes next. Concurrently the team would like feedback on the technology preview running on the Apple OS X platform.
The system requirements include:
Apple® Mac OS® X v10.6.8, OS X v10.7.2 or later with 64-bit Intel processor
Apple® Mac® Pro 4.1 or later;
MacBook® Pro 5.1 or later (MacBook Pro 6.1 or later recommended);
iMac® 8.1 or later (iMac 11.1 or later recommended);
3 GB of RAM (4 GB recommended)
2.5 GB free disk space for download and installation (3 GB recommended)
Autodesk Inventor Fusion for Mac supports iMac, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro machines with these graphics cards.

The team is interested in hearing from you on how the technology preview operates on the Mac platform. You can email your comments (good and bad) to [email protected]. We enjoy hearing the good because it indicates that we should spend more time and effort on the technology. We enjoy hearing the bad because it helps us improve the technology. So silence is the only thing we're not that fond of.
Listening is alive in the lab.
