Belgian CAD developer Bricsys has announced Shape, a new .dwg-based 3D conceptual design software tool. The software will be available for free early in 2018, says Bricsys CEO Erik de Keyser. Shape was demonstrated briefly at the annual Bricsys Conference for developers, resellers, and the press on 25 October in Paris. Shape is a reworked subset of BricsCAD, the .dwg editor that Bricsys sells globally. “Shape addresses the need for starting off simple,” says de Keyser.
