It's almost hard to believe that I've written and updated 22 books on BricsCAD, and today I'm pleased to announce that #23 is available from the Bricsys Web site.
BricsCAD V15 for AutoCAD Users tells you just about anything you need to know about what's different and what's the same between the newest releases of BricsCAD and AutoCAD. It's loaded with hints on how to work with both CAD systems.
In particular, Chapter 5 on how to operate a design office with both BricsCAD and AutoCAD will be of interest to firms looking to lower their production costs. It's not unusual these days for offices to maintain a few seats of AutoCAD (for those tasks BricsCAD cannot perform), while bulking up on licenses of the 4x cheaper BricsCAD Platinum.
The chapter solves issues such as the following:
- Lowering the total cost of ownership
- Dividing workflows between AutoCAD and BricsCAD
- Strategically implementing of a second CAD system
- Maintaining common operations through file paths
- Setting up the dual-OS office by running both Linux and Windows
The entire ebook is free, and can be downloaded from https://bricsys.com/estore/estoreBooks.jsp.
To apply these practices, I am available through firstname.lastname@example.org to consult on enhancing dual-CAD offices.
