Customers should be aware they are not purchasing a replacement program for AutoCAD or BricsCAD.

CAD Design Software products use this Graphic Engine only to execute our developed layout and design software program tools (e.g. compiled ARX and LSP files) and the EPD for Windows and the BWX and ACAM products should not be considered, replaced, or assumed it could be used to replace any prior AutoCAD or BricsCAD design environment to perform or produce productive work.
