Autodesk Inventor Beta 2

It's that time of year again when as users of Autodesk Inventor we start to get excited about the availability of the latest Inventor beta. This years beta program is codenamed Sikorsky (more details on that later).

The beta program gives Inventor users an opportunity to have a first look at future technology that may (or may not) ship in the next release of the software. It also gives users an opportunity to trial and test the beta to provide feedback to the development team.

If you are an Inventor user and would like to get your hands on the latest beta version (beta 2) it's quick and easy to do so. Just send an email with the following details:
  • "SikorskyB2" in the subject
  • Your first and last names
  • Your company name
Give it a day or so and you should receive a reply with details of how to access the beta program, download the beta software and provide direct feedback on your experiences.

Why Sikorsky?

If you're wondering why this beta program is codenamed Sikorsky, all Autodesk Inventor beta programs are named after famous engineers or inventors - this year it is the turn of Russian engineer Igor Sikorsky who was a pioneer in the development of helicopters and fixed-winged aircraft.

For more information about Igor Sikorsky visit Wikipedia.

Happy Inventing!
