    I just got my Macbook today and I immediately installed Parallels and Windows 10, which works great. However I can't get Solidworks to work properly. Does anyone have any experience on how to get it to work on rMB? This is what it looks like when I open a new part file.

    Try installing the Parallels Tools.

    EDIT: and also don't forget to enable 3D acceleration.

    Where is 3D acceleration, is it for Parallels or Solidworks? Thanks!

    It's actually enabled already, I have DX10 and v-sync on. I found that I can use software openGL to have it working, but it feels a little sluggish. At least I have something I can work with. Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for helping! I just need something at home to view and maybe edit something from time to time. The only two thing I need from Windows are Xbox app and occasionally solidworks, which really can't justify install a boot camp Windows. I have a MBP for work.
    I tried that workaround and nothing changed, still have to use software OpenGL.
