Dubai, UAE, 25 November 2018: BricsCAD, a software application developed by the Belgium-based company Bricsys, has received its latest upgrade. BricsCAD V19 has a new set of tools catering to the HVAC aspects in the design phase of projects, said Per O Gogstad, Business Development Manager, Bricsys. Elaborating on the workings of the software, he said, “When designing a building in 3D and BIM, you want to be able to add material properties as a part of the information model.” He added, you can also design your own library of products in BricsCAD or even import readily available products in 3D through the Internet. “With BIM tools available in BricsCAD, the objective is that it should be easy and affordable to apply BIM on any type and size of projects,” said Gogstad.

Pointing to a major competitor in the market, he said, AutoCAD is widely used, especially when it comes to general 2D and 3D design. However, the challenge today, he said, is that industry professionals don’t want to change or improve their workflows and are often stuck using the same technology and products. “BricsCAD has not received the required exposure in the region and is not very well-known,” said Gogstad. For the moment, he added, the focus is to grow the market in Europe and in the United States. While predicting the use of the software in the future, Gogstad said, it will most likely find best use in Dubai’s future plan of 3D printing buildings. Gogstad added, in the future, one can use the software to begin with a simple 3D architectural design and then move on to more complex detailing.
