Introduction to BricsCAD®
Intelligent CAD tools for more efficient workflows
BricsCAD® isn’t just an AutoCAD® alternative – it’s a rapidly evolving CAD software that incorporates artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to help improve your workflows.
Automatically searches your drawings for identical entity sets and replaces them with block references.
Work smarter with parametric intelligence applied to otherwise dumb solids. It’s the fastest way to create families of smart, table-driven parts.
Snap to grid
Create accurately with a dynamic snap grid that changes to reflect your zoom level without keyboard entry.
… and much more, including a block editor, improved dimensions, PDF imports and datalinking.
Which BricsCAD® product is right for you?
Familiar, powerful 2D with basic 3D functionality, like the market-leading “lite” CAD program, but with the added power of full LISP customization support. BricsCAD Lite, like all BricsCAD editions, comes with BLADE – the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment.
Everything in Lite plus advanced direct modeling for history-less 3D modeling ease, enhanced productivity tools like automatic block recognition (Blockify) and rendering with materials/lighting on board.
BricsCAD Ultimate contains all the functionality of the BricsCAD product range.
A powerful, history-free and fast part/assembly modeler with resilient sheet metal design tools. BricsCAD Mechanical offers a configurable bill of materials capabilities, intelligent exploded view/assembly animations and assembly kinematics. And like BricsCAD BIM, BricsCAD Mechanical works in a familiar way that will have you up to speed in hours, not weeks.
A better BIM workflow that keeps everything vector accurate, all in DWG and 100% IFC interoperable. BricsCAD BIM uses AI-based workflows to automatically categorize BIM objects and PROPAGATE geometry throughout the model. BricsCAD BIM offers consistent level of development (LOD) control that is unmatched in the industry.
