CAD expert Heidi Hewett joins Bricsys to help bring BricsCAD BIM to the next level


After 26 years with Autodesk®, the former AutoCAD® Technical Marketing Manager has joined Bricsys as their User Success Manager. She will be part of the Bricsys global team and help assisting customers in moving to the next level of productivity with BricsCAD and BricsCAD BIM.

“We are very pleased to welcome Heidi Hewett as our new User Success Manager”, said Don Strimbu, VP Communications, Bricsys. “She joins the Bricsys global team to assist customers in moving to the next level of productivity with the best dwg-based CAD applications available today - BricsCAD and BricsCAD BIM.”

Heidi has been working with .dwg-based CAD since 1986, learning AutoCAD as a student. After earning her B.S. in Architectural Engineering, Heidi joined Autodesk, Inc. as a Product Support Technician. During her 26-year tenure at Autodesk, Heidi worked as a Training Specialist, a Senior Applications Engineer and as a Technical Marketing Manager.

“For well over a decade, the world was told that the .dwg file format is not suitable for advanced design workflows. It can’t be used for mechanical design, and it certainly can’t be used for BIM. Bricsys has shown that this old belief is simply not true. The .dwg file format is alive and well and kicking serious butt. I am looking forward to helping Bricsys take .dwg to new, previously unimagined levels, and I’m excited to be part of the team that is doing this for our users.” - Heidi Hewett, User Success Manager, Bricsys

A life-long learner, Heidi earned a M.S. in Technical Communications and an M.A. in Information and Learning Technologies from the University of Colorado. She brings her passion for learning to Bricsys, where she will work to help our customers understand the fastest path to success with BricsCAD products.
