Discover BricsCAD Flexible Licensing

Autodesk® has made a public announcement that states from August 7, 2020, on your next subscription renewal, you can trade each of your network licenses for two “named user” subscriptions. For customers leveraging network licenses today, migrating to a named user licensing scheme will be an expensive and time-consuming ordeal.    


BricsCAD® is available in single, volume and network licenses, as a subscription or as a perpetual (permanent) license.

Autodesk®: Transition to Named Users

  • Starting August 7, 2020, Network license users can trade-in one network license for two named user subscriptions on their next renewal.

  • Named user licenses are linked to a single, “named” user; e.g. “”.

  • Named user licensing means that companies will need to purchase Subscriptions for every user who uses the software - even for casual use.

  • Administering named user plans puts an additional load on CAD Managers and IT staff.

  • If you support more than two (2) users with a current network license, you will need to purchase additional subscriptions, at an increased price over last year.


To summarize, Named user licenses are tied to an individual user in your organization. Only the named user can access the software. If they aren’t using it, it sits idle. Legally, it can’t be shared.

Bricsys®: Flexible Licensing Benefits

  • Bricsys offers single, volume and network licenses. You can buy them (perpetual) or rent them (subscription).

  • BricsCAD licenses are linked to the company that owns them, not to an individual user.

  • BricsCAD network licenses can float across a corporate network, covering both dedicated and casual users.

  • There is no additional administration required to manage BricsCAD licenses.

  • Bricsys offers an optional low-cost Maintenance program to keep your perpetual software licenses up-to-date. We offer real choice in CAD software licensing.


To summarize, BricsCAD flexible licenses aren’t tied to a user. They are linked to the company that owns them. BricsCAD network licenses can float across your network, to serve both dedicated and casual users. If an employee joins your firm, or leaves your firm, there’s no need to re-assign their license to a new user.

Switch to BricsCAD, and you’ll control your license choices. BricsCAD is available as single, volume and network licenses – subscription or perpetual – the choice is yours.
