Q - question

Direct editing of any 3D model in AutoCAD or Inventor.

A - answer Inventor Fusion 2012 (localized) is now part of AutoCAD 2012 and Inventor 2012. This software for direct, interactive editing of 3D models can be invoked right from the AutoCAD and Inventor environments (not neccessary to launch it separately).

Thanks to the direct editing and its automatic recognition of construction features, you can use Fusion to load and "intelligently" edit any 3D CAD model, including the STEP, Catia, Solidworks, Pro/E etc. formats. The edited model can be saved to a DWG file, or processed in Inventor.

An example of the Fusion edit functionality on an imported STEP assembly can be seen in the CAD video #48:
