With v14 of BricsCAD, Bricsys continues to deliver on its promise to unify 2D CAD and 3D direct modeling for dwg. In addition to standard dwg CAD functionality the platform now also provides users with 3D direct modeling, 2D and 3D constraints, design intent recognition, assembly modeling and kinematic analysis, and since v14 now also with sheet metal capabilities.

JETCAM Expert provides either full interactivity or automation of any stage of the tooling and nesting process. With support for virtually every CNC punching and profiling machine available today, the award-winning software offers high performance nesting options and tight integration into legacy data systems such as MRP.
