Ghent, Belgium and Merrimack, NH, USA – June 19, 2013 – Bricsys, a global provider of dwg engineering design software brought to market under the BricsCAD® brand, today announced the immediate availability of the beta version of the BricsCAD BIM Module for the Windows operating system. This add-on module for Building Information Modeling is available for free to users of the Pro and Platinum edition of BricsCAD V13.2 (32-bit).
“Just as we have done for CAD software over the last decade, Bricsys is committed to exploring and pushing the limits of what can be done for BIM within the familiar .dwg environment,” said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO. “Our plan is to make this beta available for free and further tailor and develop it based on the customer feedback that we receive.”
With the addition of the BricsCAD BIM Module, Bricsys is now providing the building blocks for comprehensive solutions in the AEC (Architecture, Construction and Engineering) market:
- BricsCAD Pro or Platinum software
- BricsCAD BIM Module beta
- Smart connection with the Chapoo collaboration platform
“We’re looking forward to testing the integration of the BricsCAD BIM Module with our Artisan rendering solution,” said Dave Forrester, Managing Director, Lightworks. “I believe that this Module will provide developers with technology for developing creative solutions for the AEC market, all within the .dwg environment with which customers are familiar.”
With the release of the BricsCAD BIM Module beta, Bricsys is further extending its core philosophy of “Unified CAD”, allowing user and developers to remain within their familiar .dwg environment without the need for annoying conversions or separate companion products, whether working on 2D drafting, 3D direct modeling or building information modeling.
The English language version of the BricsCAD BIM Module beta for the Windows environment is 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.
