Just curious if anyone has used a Mac with a Windows operating system (XP or Vista) and Revit Architecture 2010?

I would like to know if the faster Macs with their DuoCores can handle the processor needs of Revit and if it is a workable platform.

Your help is appreciated as always.

I would love to hear the answer to this also.  I've been waiting for Revit & AutoCAD to be compatible with MAC before I buy a MAC.  The rest of my family owns MAC's and won't stop bragging about how much better they run...

Is Autodesk going to make a MAC version anytime soon?

you will probably never see a Mac version. But Autodesk does now offically support revit on the Mac thru the use of Boot Camp

here is some info

I use Revit 2010 and 2009 on my Mac Book Pro on a daily basis and it works great.  I went back and forth between multiple setups comparing VMWare Fusion and Parallels and Bootcamp, Vista, XP, x32, x64, etc, etc and finally concluded that Parallels running XP x64 is the fastest and most stable setup on my machine.

Note that the speed of Revit on a Mac has nothing to do with processor speed or memory of the hardware, but the software settings that you tell the VM to run Windows in.  I run Parallels at quad core with 1gb RAM and 256mb vRAM and it runs like a champ.  I have several videos of me working in revit from my mac available on my website: 

I wanted to point out that I think Coreed meant that Autodesk DOES officially support Revit on Mac via Bootcamp (which I don't mess with since I love my OS X tools too much):

However, he is probably correct that you will most likely not see a Revit port for OS X, ever.  Think of all the problems they have with it in Windows, then imagine Autodesk trying to just port it over to another OS... yeah... I wouldn't even want to think about that.


hth, best of luck!

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
