Title: Transition Hiccups
Post by: Master_Shake on February 08, 2018, 10:03:55 AM
Just recently got our AutoDesk renewal and these cumulative 5% increases for the maintenance plan are going to kill our budget in no time.

When your company transitioned to BricsCAD, what hiccups or hurdles did you face and how did you remedy them?

It ran without major problems in our environment (Electrical 2D-planning, lots of block-inserting and
many attributes with data).

We started to use Bricscad with V9, for first tests we used V7+8. Transition ran smooth but slow
(50 Users) because we also introduced heavy customization (LISP + OpenDCL) during this time.
Bricscad-support was great from the beginning, we had troubles using OpenDCL which they fixed from V8
to V9 if i recall correctly. A near show-stopper was the absence of a bmp-printer,
our IT-Departement fixed that for us. The lack of the possibility to create dynamic blocks is no problem for us.

Right now we have 70+ Users, customization now also uses C# and we evaluate the BIM-Module which looks,
though very basic at the time, promising.
