Q - question

Is there AutoCAD, Inventor, 3D Studio or other Autodesk product available for Linux?

A - answer No and there seems to be no plans to offer this in a near future.

The only applications currently supported by Autodesk on non-Windows platforms are client applications for client-server solutions (e.g. GIS MapGuide, MapServer, Architectural Studio) and multimedia applications (their Mac versions). And AutoCAD for Mac. Some Autodesk Multimedia applications are also available for Linux.

There is also a way of running Windows CAD applications under an emulator (Wine) or on non-Windows clients in a terminal mode over the Citrix server (Windows terminal server).
