Bricsys, a global provider of dwg engineering design software brought to market under the BricsCAD® brand, today announced the immediate availability of the BricsCAD V13.2 update for the Windows operating system.

"With BricsCAD V13.2 we bring a remarkable upgrade to the market," said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO. "Besides support for the 2013 .dwg format we also delivered the long awaited 64-bit version of the software, which was a top priority for many of our corporate volume customers."

The V13.2 major upgrade includes more than 20 new and improved features such as:
