BricsCAD 18 Released

The world’s best CAD system just got better with the release of BricsCAD V18.
Bricsys represents the future of the .dwg format, with comprehensive workflows for general design, mechanical design and BIM. Here’s the best part - all of these workflows are available in one product, based on .dwg - the industry standard file format. More importantly, we’re extending the .dwg format with the first fundamental change in .dwg technology in 35 years. Today, this repository-based design enables blazingly fast drawing compares with a unique visual merge feature.



The simplified user interface - including the new Manipulator Widget - will save you precious minutes each hour. In BricsCAD V18, you can access your drawing metadata simply with the improved Drawing Explorer and the new Content Browser, Layout Manager and Structure Panel.
