As I mentioned the other day Autodesk Inventor LT is now available as a free technology preview in English for certain countries (darn lawyers). Now the official press release is available.
Autodesk Launches Autodesk Inventor LT
"Inventor LT eliminates many of the headaches associated with moving files between different CAD systems," said Robert "Buzz" Kross, vice president of Autodesk Manufacturing Solutions. "As a result, customers can realize the benefits of 3D part design and AutoCAD interoperability to get their jobs done faster and easier."
Inventor LT Technology Preview is available only as English language software and is available for download only in the United States and Canada. Additional countries may be added at a future time.

Inventor LT helps customers improve their communications with their supply chain by making editable 3D part design data more accessible than ever before. Rich functionality available in Inventor LT enables:-- Multi-CAD translation capabilities for leading native and neutral 3D CAD file formats -- 3D part model creation and editing -- Automated mechanical drawings -- Genuine DWG interoperability with DWG TrueConnect technology -- Photorealistic rendering of 3D part designs
