>Autodesk will soon introduce a free mobile version of the software that will run on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Why do I get the feeling that that was the motivation for bringing it to OSX?

Touch interface and CAD has been a powerful combination for a long time. When I work in simulation, Wacom tablets (while not traditional touch) where used extensively in both 2D and 3D work. I think the iPad is the huge motivator for the porting work. If they don't get there they could loose a whole market segment to an upstart.
