How to run Siemens TIA Portal on Mac

Siemens PLM Components is a collection of tools designed to integrate into CAD and PLM applications. Each component provides one specific function, such as automatic path planning, geometric modelling, shape search, and so on. However, certain components are logically grouped together; for example, components in the “Kineo” group perform functions useful for controlling robotic arms and similar equipment. Though all of these components are theoretically cross-platform, in practice, many of them work only on Windows. Attempts to use PLM Components on Mac produce strange and inconsistent results – which is obviously unacceptable in any field that demands precision. However, there are several way to run Siemens PLM Components on Mac without encountering these issues; the most straightforward one is to use a virtual machine. Read the article for a more detailed explanation.
