Mac OSX Mountain Lion and Software Compatibility for Architects

Mac OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion
Mac OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion

GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD r15/r16: Both versions work, with only minor issues that have been explained in detail by ARCHICAD Wiki. AutoCAD 2013, AutoCAD 2012, AutoCAD LT 2013, and AutoCAD LT 2012: Currently not supported on the Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) operating system. Installing Mountain Lion can cause undesirable side effects with the installer, cursor, printing to PDF and more. However, Autodesk is working to resolve these issues. SketchUp 8: According to roaringapps, it is compatible with OS X 10.8. Vectorworks 2012: Has been tested and should run fine, as stated on Vectorworks FAQ. Parallels Desktop 7: Supports OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) operating system. Learn how to make your copy of Parallels Desktop 7 Mountain Lion ready here. Architects use this virtualization software to run Windows on Mac OSX, for some specific tools that are only available for that OS. Adobe Creative Suite 6: Everything works fine.
