Cloud-based collaboration for Chapoo and Bricsys

Share this on social media:

Chapoo, a provider of a cloud-based project information and collaboration platform, and Bricsys, a global provider of DWG engineering design software brought to market under the BricsCAD brand, have announced that the upcoming point release of the BricsCAD software platform will allow users to seamlessly upload, download and store designs on the cloud-based Chapoo collaboration service.

'Many of our customers, especially in the construction and building management industries, require their draftsmen and engineers to collaborate on their designs with an extended network of partners both inside and outside their own companies,' said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO.

'Through this technology partnership we provide our customers with seamless built-in access to one of the premier cloud-based collaboration platforms in Europe.'

New features incorporated in this point release for both the Windows and Linux versions of BricsCAD V13 include:

  • Opening a .dwg design from a project on the Chapoo service;
  • Download a .dwg design from a Chapoo project; and
  • Upload a .dwg design to a Chapoo project.

.dwg designs can be transparently stored on and accessed from the Chapoo service with or without dependent (xrefs, images, etc.) files.

Chapoo, provider of the Chapoo Free and Chapoo Premium cloud-based collaboration services, was spun-off from Bricsys in 2012 and now operates as an independent company.
