I’m always happy to talk to BricsCAD users, but and time and time again I hear the same misconceptions. Today I’m going to put these to bed once and for all!

Here are the top 5 myths about BricsCAD:

Myth #1 BricsCAD is Made in China

Bricsys is a global company, however, the majority of the BricsCAD product is designed and developed in Belgium. The headquarters are situated in the picturesque city of Gent, a true architect’s delight!

We also have offices all over the world:

Akademgorodok Novosibirsk, Russia: The home of the ingenious BricsCAD Mechanical team, responsible for most of the really cool direct modeling and Sheet Metal tools!

Roman and Alexander (BricsCAD developers) outside the Bricsys Office in Novosibirsk, Russia

Bucharest, Romania: A large portion of our help and support team is based in Romania.

Bricsys USA: A growing number of the Bricsys teamwork directly from the USA.

Bricsys UK: In 2020 Bricsys started its team based in the UK.

Bricsys APAC office Singapore: In 2020 Bricsys opened the doors to its APAC HQ in Singapore, allowing us to offer more region-specific help and support.

International resellers: In addition to all of this, Bricsys works closely with a number of resellers across the globe, so Bricsys never really sleeps. This allows us to provide you with help and support, when you need it, in most languages.
