Ljubljana, SLOVENIA, EU, September 1, 2015 — CGS plus, an Autodesk and Bricsys solution partner, releases its professional swept path analysis software, Autopath 2016 for Autodesk 2016 platforms and BricsCAD. About Autopath 2016 CGS plus developed its first swept path analysis software back in the early 1990s as a part of Plateia, the AutoCAD high-end road design application. CGS plus then introduced a swept path analysis solution to the market in 2009 as an independent product called Autopath. Since 2012, however, Autopath and other CGS plus design solutions have been capable of not only supporting Autodesk CAD platforms, but also those of BricsCAD as well.

In short, Autopath has been developed in close cooperation with civil engineers, transportation engineers, and architects. More importantly, it is incredibly easy to use and requires virtually no training, as users are typically up-and-running in a matter of minutes. And best of all, the software contains all the features users need for their work, but at an affordable price.
