It’s official. Bricsys has left the building. According to this press release, they have finally snapped ties with the ITC and have officially left the organization. When I visited Gent (Belgium) in April last year, Bricsys CEO Erik de Keyser spoke to me at length about the many reasons why Bricsys had begun parallel development of a new CAD system based on the ODA platform.
In the press release, Erik says that leaving the ITC was a logical step. Its not difficult to see why. After all this time, the ITC has not being able to deliver on its promises on the new IntelliCAD 7 platform. Whereas Bricsys already achieved that in version 8. They are on version 10 now.
