Thanks to Shaun Hurley for Twittering this little reminder!
The show on the Discovery Channel, Doing DaVinci, has designers recreating Leonardo DaVinci's designs. If you catch the show, they're using Inventor to help recreate the designs! Probably not fair to Leonardo, but you have to admit, if he could, he probably would have used a 3D modeler to design his machines too.
