What does Brics use for licensing now - FlexLM?

As long as they keep Erik and his overall philosophies in place, having more access to funding could only be a good thing for Bricscad you would think.

The other thing this provides is more street cred and exposure for Bricscad, the wheels are turning slowly with quite a lot of big developers moving house with their verticals, this may make some of others transition a bit quicker. The winners here are the users with a more realistic price point and licensing system :)

Michael,
I respect your insight and the mileage you've travelled but I would be estatic if your prophesy based on experiences is not fulfilled.

Regards,

If it helps, I've seen precedent for other products improving once under the Hexagon/Intergraph umbrella.

Interesting point - Leica is also a Hexagon brand.  So there could be some "cloudiness" in BricsCAD's future.

Your humor needs a little charge to it for people to notice.

Michael, I'm a fellow cynic, but I'm betting on cold popcorn. I like what I've seen behind the curtain. I believe it's a genuine joining of forces with a substantially shared vision and common goal. I expect some hiccups, but I aim to do whatever I can to keep the train on its track. I think lost and lonely CAD users should rejoice: the savior is born.

Imo, the acquisition removes some risks, such as being litigated out of existence. But adds others, I.e. if the new boss wants a new perpetual revenue stream.. time will tell.
The new big boss is quite the visionary, as was/is erik, imho, overall its a positive deal

I so hope you're right and seductive overtures mature long into a long beneficial relationship.

I aim to do whatever I can to keep the train on its track.

This alone should give skeptics -- like me -- buoyed hope.

I think lost and lonely CAD users should rejoice: the savior is born.

Given that you've never been one for hyperbole this is an amazing statement!

Thanks for chiming in Owen.

Nodding.

But adds others, i.e. if the new boss wants a new perpetual revenue stream..

One of numerous concerns.

Hope++

Thanks Daniel.

Hello all. I spoke with Rick Allen, Executive VP for Hexagon PPM last week at the conference and I definitely get the feeling that this is going to be good for BricsCAD and its users. I don't have any direct quotes at this time (and quite frankly some of it was off the record anyway), but I'm going to lean towards innocent until proven guilty for now.

Quote from: Steve Johnson
Hexagon has been working very closely with Bricsys for nearly two years.

Well that's interesting!

Quote from: Steve Johnson
I think it will be very good for Bricsys. Very bad for Autodesk, too.
