Land F/X on a Mac using Parallels

Shown above in Coherence Mode.

You don’t have to give up your Mac to run Land F/X.

Essential programs like AutoCAD, SketchUp, GIS, Rhino, and yes, Land F/X, all either require or work better with a Windows operating system. Fortunately, a program called Parallels allows you to do just that. Parallels sets up a "virtual" Windows machine on your Mac, allowing you to run any Windows-based program.

Step-by-step instructions for installing Parallels



What you need to get going:
  ▢  Parallels
  ▢  Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8, or Windows 10
  ▢  PC version of AutoCAD 2017 – 2021 (Not LT) or F/X CAD

Our Experience:
  • Dramatic decrease in IT maintenance time
  • Virus concerns no longer a worry
  • Able to run two operating systems side by side
