AUTODESK REVIT 2021 Requires Windows 10 !!

Updated: Jun 16

As i was browsing for the New #autodesk #revit_2021 , i was surprised that it only works with #windows_10 64 bit OS, which means that a wide range of people should change their #operating #system or they will not be able to use the new #software,



despite the fact the Autodesk #revit_2020 also requires Windows 10 OS but it still runs on the older OS "but they say it is not Recommended,


so today i am posting to spread the #information regarding the Software system and #hardware #requirements, so you can figure out what is required before you dive into the new #Revit,


you can download the #Free #trial on:
