Use Revit® to drive efficiency and accuracy across the project lifecycle, from conceptual design, visualisation and analysis to fabrication and construction. Begin modelling in 3D with accuracy and precision. Automatically update floor plans, elevations and sections as your model develops. As Revit proliferates, the need to provide a mac os version of Revit Increases. Small and interdisciplanary practices desperately need the native mac version. Younger designers and architects are also more likly to prefer os platform. If a cloud solution is not around the corner, a mac os solution is OVERDUE.

[FONT="]Will Autodesk release an Autodesk Revit Architecture for Macintosh Operating Systems? If yes, when will it possibly be released? [/FONT]
[FONT="]I have been using bootcamp for Autodesk Revit and it's such a hassle to have to Partition the Hard Disk and then restart the computer. I know how VMware works and it makes the computer slow. Windows doesn't suck, but I prefer Macintosh. Autodesk has already released an AutoCad for Mac. I have seen the Autodesk Educational version of the Autocad for Mac and it's awesome! I mainly use Revit because it's BIM. I really do hope one is released for Mac.[/FONT]
