    Hello all,

    I have been using parallels pretty well to access Rhino 4/5 over the years. However with Rhino 6 it seems to require open gl 4, which Parallels won't seem to support!

    I need rhino 6 to work through my mac, and so am looking for alternatives. From what I can tell, VM Ware Fusion works well enough with Rhino 6, does anyone have that experience?

    Are there any other VM software that would be able to run rhino 6 well? Ideally, it would be able to access my bootcamp partition as I sometimes use bootcamp directly to do rendering.

    Let me know what you all think!
    Richard

    There are many reasons. Grasshopper, and a much richer user interface. Rendering plug ins, etc. rhino 5 on Mac is very behind the curve.

    Okay, understand. Just though I'd ask. Like many other high quality apps developed for Windows, Mac development of the same app falls behind.
