All Bricscad software now free for educational users
Gent, Belgium and Merrimack, USA: May 30, 2012 -- Bricsys today announced its new International Academic Program, which gives students and educational institutions free access to all versions of Bricscad software and APIs.
For instance, Bricscad V12 Platinum, the company's flagship computer-aided design software, is now free to students. It features an instantly recognizable GUI, reads and writes native .dwg files, and offers intuitive 3D direct modeling along with 2D and 3D constraints and automatic design intent detection. This powerful CAD software is available on Windows and Linux operating systems, and is offered free of charge to the educational community worldwide.
Through its broad offering of APIs (application programming interfaces), Bricsys encourages students and instructors to dream up new and creative design functions, thereby contributing to exciting new developments in CAD and engineering software.
Bricsys plans to launch a unique e-store that enables students and educational institutions to sell their applications and inventions online to the world. Bricsys will facilitate the sales and payment procedure.
Once registered, students, instructors, and educational institutions can download the software, and then use it for 12 months. After this period, they must renew their qualification. To join the Academic Program, visit the Bricsys Web site at: http://www.bricsys.com/en_INTL/home/academic.jsp.
