The Autodesk Inventor requirements systems seems to say that IV works on macs, namely by having a "For Macintosh Users" section that fails to mention that their software is windows only.
I use AutoCAD on my mac, and I really hope I'm just missing something, because when I went to buy IV there was no mac version.
I've bought VMWare and now I'm trying to get ahold of a windows 7 disk and a USB disk drive for my air.
Is it possible to get IV natively on a mac?
nope there is no such thing as inventor for the mac
system requirements to run on a mac:
You can install Autodesk® Inventor® Professional software on a Mac® computer on a Windows partition. The system must use Boot Camp® to manage a dual OS configuration and meet the minimum system requirements.
- Mac OS® X 10.5.x
- Boot Camp V 2.0 or higher
- Intel-based Mac (64-bit Windows Vista requires an Intel Core™2 duo or Xeon processor)
- 3 GB RAM (Recommend 4 GB for 32-bit Windows OS, 8 GB or more for 64-bit Windows OS)
- 20 GB disk space for Apple OS partition or Windows OS partition
Mac Virtualization on Parallels Desktop
Autodesk Inventor Professional can be used on the Mac via Parallels Desktop for Mac without having to boot directly into the Windows OS, so it is easy to switch between platforms. The system must meet the following requirements:
- Mac OS X 10.6.x
- Parallels Desktop 5.0 (5.0.9344 or higher)
- Intel based Mac (64-bit Windows Vista requires an Intel Core 2 duo or Xeon processor)
- Minimum 4 GB RAM (6 GB system memory for 32-bit Windows OS, 8 GB or more for 64-bit Windows OS recommended)
- Minimum 40 GB available disk space (100 GB recommended)
We have started posting more information and video
Thanks Kevin! When will this be avilable? Are there beta oppertunities? Running on Bootcamp has been a huge pain to be honest.
EDIT: I went to the download link on Facebook, and it was an exe file (I clicked on the 64 bit link).
