Hexagon Strengthens its Construction Solutions Portfolio for AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) Market with Bricsys Acquisition
Hexagon AB, a global leader in digital solutions, today announced the acquisition of Bricsys, a fast-growing developer of CAD (computer-aided design) software that has been at the forefront of providing open, collaborative construction technology solutions since its founding in 2002.
Its CAD platform, BricsCAD®, supports 2D/3D general, mechanical, and sheet metal design and building information modelling (BIM) in one system. It’s 100% based on the de facto standard design format (.dwg), providing designers, engineers, and BIM professionals powerful access to the huge potential of vertical CAD applications created by thousands of third-party developers. Bricsys also offers its own set of time-saving, artificial intelligence-driven add-ons – from conceptual modelling to seamless BIM workflows and cloud connectivity.
With this acquisition, Hexagon strengthens its position as the No. 1 provider of enterprise-wide plant creation, engineering, construction and asset management solutions that enable quick and easy creation of fully intelligent 3D plant models. In addition, Bricsys continues to enhance BricsCAD so that it works smoothly with CADWorx® which continues to meet ever more demanding design goals and provide the ability to explore new areas where there’s an opportunity to lower project costs.
