AB - Beam Delivery Simulation (BDSIM) is a program that uses a suite of high energy physics software including Geant4, CLHEP & ROOT, that seamlessly tracks particles through accelerators and detectors utilising the full range of particles and physics processes from Geant4. BDSIM has been used to simulate linear colliders such as the International Linear Collider (ILC) and more recently, circular colliders such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The latest developments including improved geometry modelling; external geometry support; process biasing; and a new event display are presented. A significantly revised and improved accompanying tool chain is presented comprising of a series of Python utilities that allow efficient and automatic preparation of models. Furthermore, a library for both ROOT and Python that provides powerful analysis and event viewing after simulation is demonstrated.
