Hexagon Adds Seasoned Reseller to it's US Channel

The Bricsys team is happy to welcome Elevate Technologies as a US reseller of Bricsys solutions, based in the northeastern United States. Len Kalmer and Carl Adams come to us with more than 20 years’ experience in CAD sales.


After growing Sage CAD to become one of the largest Autodesk resellers in the US, Len and Carl won Autodesk’s “US Dealer of the Year” honors. In 2005, Sage CAD joined Autodesk super-reseller Imaginit Technologies. For the next decade, Len and Carl owned Plant Design Solutions, based in Houston Texas, one of the largest Hexagon PPM CADWorx® Dealers in the world. Hexagon acquired Plant Design Solutions last year. We are excited that Len and Carl have brought their rich experience in the CAD market to us at Bricsys.

“We are so impressed with the quality, speed, and reliability of all the Bricsys products,” said Adams. “We’ve watched the BIM market grow over the last two decades, and we feel that BricsCAD® BIM will be quite well received.”

Kalmer added: “With its fair price point, the flexibility of perpetual licensing and 2018 .dwg compatibility, the future for BricsCAD® is bright. We are so happy to be back working with our talented friends at Hexagon PPM, and look forward to offering our former Autodesk clients a better choice.”

Welcome to BricsCAD® BIM V20

Gent, Belgium - 28 October 2019

Now in its fifth release, BricsCAD® BIM V20 significantly improves on our solids-based concept-to- documentation workflow to create CAD-accurate Building Information Models in record time. With the possibility to continuously increase the level of development (LOD), BricsCAD® BIM lets you start in 3D and stay in 3D throughout the design process. Then, you can leverage BricsCAD’s world-class annotation tools to make short work of construction or manufacturing documentation.


BricsCAD® BIM V20 introduces many new, time-saving workflows, that can automate and accelerate consistent LOD across your BIM. The new BIMSTAIR parametric staircase generator helps to create detailed stair layouts. The AUTOMATCH tool lets you copy compositions and details across your entire BIM, automatically.

The Enscape Integration

Coming soon


“Interoperability is one of the focus points of BricsCAD® V20. With IFC4 and BCF capabilities, BricsCAD® BIM can talk with any other application. Now, the Bricsys ecosystem provides access to many third-party applications running on top of BricsCAD BIM in any vertical discipline.” - Tiemen Strobbe, BricsCAD® BIM Product Owner.

To deliver world-class visualization capabilities, the integration of Enscape3D allows real-time rendering and walk-throughs of your BIM model at any point in its development. The speed and performance of Enscape makes it a perfect complement to BricsCAD® BIM. And with V20, the Enscape renderer will be available for purchase directly inside of BricsCAD®, with our new App Store integration.

The Grasshopper Connection

As the transition from “BIM as a design capture tool” to “BIM as a design tool” accelerates, the shift to algorithmic design continues. We’re proud to announce the deep integration
of Robert McNeel & Associates’ Rhino 3D modeler into BricsCAD® BIM V20, which includes a bi-directional connection to their Grasshopper algorithmic design system. The BricsCAD® BIM / Grasshopper connection is openly available in the Rhino Inside GitHub repository. This connection allows the full breadth of application programs built for Rhino – over 500 strong – to work with BricsCAD® BIM today.

BCF panel and IFC 4.0 support

As an active member of the Building Smart organization, Bricsys has integrated a BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) panel into BricsCAD® BIM V20. The panel communicates textual information, screen-captures, and more on top of the IFC model layer to help design teams collaborate throughout the design and documentation phases of a project. The BCF panel is based on the Open BIM Collaboration Format Standard. Also, in BricsCAD® BIM V20, the core database format has been enhanced to fully support the IFC 4.0 standard for data and geometry import & export.
