want to streamline their software purchases and are looking for vendors to
deliver solid functionality and quality support at compelling prices, and
that’s exactly where we excel.”
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
- A series of new commands, functions, dialogs and features
for improved 2D drafting.
The English language versions of the BricsCAD V13 software
for the Linux environment, including the no charge 30 day trial version, are
available for immediate delivery, and can be downloaded from the Bricsys
website or obtained from a BricsCAD sales point in one of more than 70
