How to Install Windows 11 for free on the M1 Mac

How to Install Windows 11 for free on the M1 Mac? We used MOI3D for some Hard Surface modeling on our workstation. For remote work, we used Anydesk or Parsec to dial into the office workstation. For traveling purposes, we would love to take some tools on our journey to dive deeper into MOI3D. We found this great explanation about how to install Windows 11 ARM on the M1 Macbook Pro.

We had to buy the UTM Virtual machine for 10€ inside the App Store, and register for the Windows Insider Program. The installation took around  20 Minutes and now we are able to use Windows on the M1 Macbook Pro.
