Hexagon Acquires Bricsys, and more: Highlights from the 2018 London conference

Bengaluru, India

hexagon-bricscad
We are back in Bengaluru after attending the Bricsys 2018 Conference in London, which happened on October 23 and 24.
The main highlight of this conference was the announcement that Bricsys has been acquired by Swedish company Hexagon, and this makes BricsCAD a brand that is now owned by a company that is a 3.5bn USD / year revenue technology giant. Some serious brand endorsement there!
This is a huge leap ahead for Bricsys, until now a tiny company with revenue of just 13mn Euros / year that took the .dwg world by storm and emerged as the only viable CAD design platform that was not just compatible to AutoCAD, but much better, superior, stable and state-of-the-art. In its journey, BricsCAD not only went beyond 2D drafting, but also made serious inroads into technologies like BIM, Sheet Metal, 3D Direct Modeling, 3D Data Exchange, engineering data collaboration and cloud integration, to name a few.
The success of this journey by Bricsys also spelt success to the huge eco-system of third-party developers that found their product sales rising year-on-year, when BricsCAD became the only reliable .dwg CAD platform (other than AutoCAD), where programmers could port their Lisp. .NET or C++ ARX applications with minimum effort and maximum compatibility.
I have many stories, opinions and technical analysis to share, and I start with this post where I attach 8 PDF files which capture the essence of what this conference was all about.
Please feel free to share this among your friends, colleagues and other in the organization you work in.
You will read about the new features in V19 as well as some of the best narration about the happenings on the two days of the conference.
Please be aware that BricsCAD V19 is not yet available on the web-site and the official global launch is happening on November 12, 2018.
If you are on subscription, you will get V19 automatically. If you are not on subscription, now is perhaps the best time to buy a subscription / upgrade.
