Ghent, Belgium October 18, 2010 - Bricsys announced the release of Bricscad V11 for Windows. With this version Bricsys adds again a lot of key features to its successful CAD platform.
Bricscad is recognized as the number one .dwg CAD alternative. The level of .dwg compatibility, together with the availability of a constant growing number of third party applications – actually more than 160 – makes Bricscad the best alternative solution. This new version, Bricscad V11, offers an impressive set of new features.
Bricscad V11 includes support for editing dynamic blocks. Dynamic blocks can be inserted from existing Dynamic Blocks Libraries - properties and constraints can be adjusted in the Properties Bar. PDF files can be used as an underlay and Bricscad V11 enables snapping to the geometry of the PDF entities. Bricscad V11 has a handy Layer Preview. In the layer section of the Drawing Explorer, the content of each layer displays in the Preview pane.
The Graphical User Interface is now enhanced with support for new style Grips, Dynamic Input and Dynamic Dimensions. This is a huge improvement in the interface and makes drawing in Bricscad more direct and more dynamic than ever.
Bricscad V11 Pro has the powerful Redway3D rendering engine inside, allowing rendering in permanent mode. This rendering technology is one of the fastest in the industry. Lights and materials can be defined in the Drawing Explorer. Settings to define materials allow fine-tuning to the very last detail. The performance of this rendering engine is outstanding.
“With Bricscad V11 we continue to add value for our hundreds of thousands of users worldwide. Thanks to the wide acceptance of our API’s in the application community we can offer now an unmatched range of functionality in all the main disciplines of engineering”, says Erik De Keyser, CEO of Bricsys. “Our focus is the balance between compatibility, performance and price.”
Bricscad V11 Classic for Linux is on its way and will be released within a couple of weeks. It will contain all the same new features as the Bricscad V11 Classic for Windows version. eBridge will also be available for Bricscad V11 for Linux users.
