Autodesk Expands Options For Mac Users

Autodesk, a leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, and Parallels, a worldwide leader in virtualisation and automation software, announced that they have signed an agreement to make Parallels Desktop for Mac Autodesk's preferred Mac virtualisation software.
Autodesk will now support use of AutoCAD software, AutoCAD LT software, Autodesk Inventor Professional software, Autodesk 3ds Max software, Autodesk 3ds Max Design software and the Autodesk Revit software platform for building information modelling (BIM) on Mac OS X via Parallels Desktop. Autodesk added official support for these products on the Mac via Boot Camp earlier this year.
Chris Bradshaw, Autodesk Chief Marketing Officer, said: "Autodesk customers are increasingly working with both Mac and Windows and have asked us to support Mac virtualisation. Today we are pleased to welcome Parallels as a partner and Parallels Desktop as our preferred Mac virtualisation software. This is the latest step in Autodesk's ongoing efforts to support our customers on the Mac, who will now be able to use some of our most popular 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software alongside Mac OS X, in addition to the five native Mac applications we currently offer."
Serguei Beloussov, Chief Executive Officer of Parallels, said: "Parallels Desktop for Mac enables over two million users to run Windows-based applications seamlessly and simply on their Mac. Autodesk has a long history of creating innovative and industry-leading software for design, engineering and entertainment, and we've heard many requests from customers interested in using their Autodesk applications with Parallels. We are delighted to partner with Autodesk to help makes this software more broadly available to the Mac community."
With the launch of the Autodesk Alias family of software for Mac OS X earlier this year, Autodesk now offers five native Mac OS X applications for the entertainment, multimedia and design industries, including Autodesk SketchBook Pro, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk Mudbox and Autodesk Stitcher Unlimited software.
