Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly

Ghent, Belgium and Merrimack, NH - 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 Linux operating system. This release further extends the BricsCAD software with new 2D features and with assembly modeling for the mechanical CAD market.

“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, available for both the Windows and Linux environments,” 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.”

New features for the Linux version of BricsCAD V13 are similar to the ones released for the Microsoft Windows operating system last October, and include:

  • Assembly Modeling to model complex products
  • Kinematic Analysis allows for moving or rotating parts of a model to solve real-time forward and inverse kinematic problems
  • A series of new commands, functions, dialogs and features for improved 2D drafting.

Available Now

The English language versions of the BricsCAD V13 software for the Linux environment, 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 will be made available over the coming weeks.
