Autodesk is inviting members of its manufacturing community to select the 2011 Inventor of the Year.

It is asking community members to cast their vote on its website by choosing the best of the Inventor of the Month award winners from 2011. The company with the highest rating will be named 2011 Inventor of the Year. Voting is under way and closes on February 29th at 5pm.

The Autodesk Inventor of the Month program recognises the most innovative design and engineering advancements made using Autodesk Inventor software – technology that enables digital prototyping, which allows users to design, visualise and simulate product performance before it is built.
