BricsCAD V13

Bricsys, a provider of DWG engineering design software brought to market under the BricsCAD brand, has announced the immediate availability of BricsCAD V13 for the Linux operating system.

The release extends the BricsCAD software with new 2D features and with assembly modelling for the mechanical CAD market.

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; and
  • A series of new commands, functions, dialogs and features for improved 2D drafting.
