Autodesk provides many native Mac products for 3D modeling, CAD, rendering, animation, VFX, and digital imagery. In addition, we provide full support for a number of products when used on the Mac in virtualized environments including Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion. We also support these products via Boot Camp, part of Mac OS X that lets you install and run Windows (and Windows-based applications) on a Mac. Please refer to Inventor system requirements web page, please check section for Autodesk Inventor Macintosh Users. Note: Not all Autodesk product offerings may be virtualized. You may. Autodesk Inventor is optimized to take advantage of the SSE2 extended instruction sets supported on Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64, and AMD Opteron processors. Inventor will not install on computers that do not support SSE2. Several utilities are available on the Internet that report CPUID including supported instructions sets.
Time to Switch? Autodesk Discontinues Support for 3ds Max on Mac For years, the lack of available software for Mac operating systems has been a source of frustration for many loyal Mac users and creative designers. This has never been more true than it is right now. Functionality had already been limited in the app as it could only run on Apple systems via Windows using Boot Camp, which has no GPU support and severely degraded performance. But now, Autodesk has dropped support on the Mac altogether.
An Integrated Approach will teach you the principles of engineering graphics while instructing you on how to use the powerful 3D modeling capabilities of Autodesk Inventor Using step by step tutorials, this text will teach you how to create and read engineering drawings while becoming proficient at using the most common features of Autodesk Inventor. By the end of the book you will be fully prepared to take and pass the Autodesk Inventor Certified User Exam. This text is intended to be used as a training guide for students and professionals. The chapters in this text proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic shapes to making complete sets of engineering drawings. This text takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important concepts of Engineering Graphics, as well as in-depth discussions of parametric feature-based CAD techniques.
