    Alternatively, if you are unable to install Windows on your Mac device in order to install AutoDesk Inventor, you can remotely access a campus computer lab device on your web browser by using the Web Client below. Instructions and requirements are listed when you click on Web Client at the link below. You will be able to open AutoDesk Inventor for the workshop through the remote desktop, but it is strongly recommended you install it directly on your Mac device using the method above as you may incur performance issues through the remote desktop: https://uts.mcmaster.ca/services/teaching-and-learning/computer-labs/#modal_web-client-get-virtual-desktop-on-your-web-client
