  • This is great news! CADWorkx is omni-present in the oil & gas industry and the entire eco-system of engineering services companies working for them. The availability of CADWorkx on BricsCAD breaks the last barrier for these companies to seamlessly adopt a dual-CAD platform running identical domain software.

    Congratulations Bricsys & Intergraph!
