SolidSmack.com has an interesting post on tips for running SolidWorks on your Macintosh (Intel only) computer.
SolidWorks veteran and Mac user Ben Eadie, has shared his step-by-step instructions for installing and using SolidWorks on your Mac, including a process to hacking your video card’s driver software so that you can also run RealView.
The post also notes that if you don’t want to hack your driver software you can “send Ben a beer” and he’ll send you the driver software for installation. The step-by-step instructions include:
- Install Bootcamp on your Mac (standard install on all new Macs)
- Reboot and install Windows (XP or Vista recommended)
- Install SolidWorks and MS Office (yes you need MS Office)
- You are done!
