I often get the question if we support Mac OS X with Autodesk Inventor. A month or so ago I made the switch to a MacBook Pro as my standard laptop for work. Thats right, an Inventor Product Manager on the Mac. I am always looking for more power and had heard great things about the MacBook Pro (size to power ratio) so I picked one up. Since I still spend a bit of time running Inventor I needed a great way to use Inventor on my Mac and have been playing around a bit with the various solutions. Some of you may recall a blog post I did a few months ago around using Parallels 5.
Depending on what I am doing I either fully boot into Windows 7 or I use Parallels to stay on the Mac side and virtually run Inventor. Since Parallels supports hardware acceleration, I have great performance for virtualization through Parallels and if I need extra power I will just boot up straight to Windows. This has worked great for me and something that we support for Inventor as well as many other Autodesk products.
