The sad thing is that Mac is eating more and more of the computer market, and Autodesk don't seem to care. If Revit could run properly on Windows on Mac it would be ok, but in my office we have so much problems with incompatible graphic cards that it is almost not worth it.

 

We love Mac and we love Revit, but it is sad that Autodesk don't do more to better the situation.

We have often discussed moving to the Mac platform, but the issue always is that Revit doesn't support Mac. Mac has been, for many years, the preferred choice of design oriented people. It would be great for Autodesk to recognise this and make Revit available for the Mac as well. We're hoping it happens!

Revit is not an industry standard (yet) if they don't do it then they will get left behind as architects will just use what software is available on mac. I'd say 8 out of 10 sole practitioners and students are on mac (not to mention the rest of the non cad based design industry) Autodesk are fools for not porting Revit over to mac (Max to me isn't so important as there is Maya). OSX is simply a better and more productive operating system for any design based work (particuarly print)

Revit for MacOS doesn`t exist... are you serious?Millions of people and lots of Architects and Designers are using Mac and you don`t want them to buy Revit?
I really want to use your software but I will not have Windows on my Mac. Just like you don`t want rotten tomatos in your salad...
It`s just sad that theres no proper solution for Mac-Users... I`m sure that I`m not the first one to tell you that.
And I won`t be the last.

It's like asking car makers to build cars that drive

on water because 5.12% of drivers want to do that.

5.12% potential customers... actually more than I thought... pretty many people!

the cars are a nice comparison, by the way.

hummer H2, Mercedes C, BMW 1.... what do you think for how many % of the car drivers those cars are built?
