I haven't used mechanical desktop that much cept when we need to run a quick FEA on a part. I heard the kinematic capabilities are way better than inventor though.
I think we picked inventor a while ago cause it was the best compromise between drafting, engineering, and manufacturing since I do 75% of that at work.

Is mechanical desktop parametric and does it have associativity between dimensions and parts in an assembly?
