BricsCAD (Mac) V17 comes in a 64 bit version—supported on Mac OSX 10. 8 or newer—and comes loaded with a full set of new features that match BricsCAD (Linux) with the exception of only a few Windows specific features. It’s worth mentioning that the BIM design requires a separate BIM license and a BricsCAD Platinum license.
