Leading Unified CAD Software Platform Introduces Assembly Modeling for the Mechanical CAD Market
Bricsys, a global provider of dwg engineering design software brought to market under the BricsCAD® brand, today announced the immediate availability of BricsCAD V13 for the Windows® operating system.
This release further extends the BricsCAD software with new 2D features and with assembly modeling for the mechanical CAD market. This functionality will also be externalized through APIs to support the BricsCAD partner community in the development of new value-added solutions.
“With BricsCAD we provide our customers with a single dwg-based CAD platform to take care of all their design needs from simple 2D drafting to advanced 3D direct modeling. No need to buy and learn new or companion products, no need for time consuming conversions … just one unified CAD solution,” said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO. “Under today’s tough economic circumstances enterprises want to streamline their software purchases and are looking for vendors to deliver solid functionality and quality support at compelling prices, and that’s exactly where we excel.”
BricsCAD is not only powerful CAD software but also a full-fledged CAD development platform, which application developers can use to create value-added solutions. A worldwide network of more than 700 Application Developers is using the standard APIs of the BricsCAD platform (LISP, DCL, VBA/COM, .NET, BRX) to develop value-added solutions targeted at specific industries or disciplines. Several hundred of these solutions across some twenty categories are now available through the Store on the Bricsys website, with many more to be added over the coming months.
The English language versions of the BricsCAD V13 software, including the no charge 30 day trial version, are available for immediate delivery, and can be downloaded from the Bricsys website or obtained from a BricsCAD sales point in one of more than 70 countries worldwide. Translated versions in more than 15 languages as well as the 64-bit version of the software will be made available over the coming weeks.
Pricing for the different editions of BricsCAD V13 ranges from €330/$420 to €845/$985.
