So, at this point, my BricsCAD seat is not worth much in terms of getting an upgrade. If the funds are available for the upgrade, they are likely also available for the more expensive SolidWorks.
Your reasoning doesn't make much sense to me. Even if you go with Solidworks, you will still have the same problem of costs to upgrade at a later time. Say you need to upgrade again in a few years. Spend X for Bricscad upgrade, or spend Y for something else, where Y is more expensive than X.
BricsCAD offers a whole new world for those who venture beyond the AutoCAD® horizon. Among its growing community of users, BricsCAD is best known for.
What Is Bricscad
Why is maintenance mandatory? I am sure there are users, like me, who are happy to pay the upgrade price without maintenance.
- Buying BricsCAD through our website guarantees that you will be paying less. Remember, software is a tax deductible supply when you purchase locally. Prices shown in AUD. Australian buyers add 10% GST.
- BricsCAD is an all-in-one computer-aided design (CAD) software that combines 3D modeling and 2D CAD for.dwg. It’s a less popular platform that provides all.dwg 2D CAD features while bringing the convenience of the powerful 3D modeling and time-saving tools.
- Why is the upgrade price from V20 BIM to V21 BIM nearly the same price as buying it outright? Last year I paid AUD $812 to upgrade from V19 Platinum to V20 BIM which is fair as I wanted the BIM module of Bricscad. Now the price is AUD $1463 to go from V20 to V21 BIM (excluding the module upgrade). That is nearly a%100 increase?
I'm on the cusp of getting V21. Been keeping a close eye on Bricscad and waiting for it to develop to the point I can be comfortable using it with the features I need. For kicks and giggles I went through the steps of buying a perpetual license on their website. When I added V21 Ultimate to the cart, I have an option to uncheck the 1 year maintenance package, saving me $670 CAD. Was this changed from when V20 was the current package?
