BricsCAD Lite

The standard, most affordable BricsCAD module for 2D drafting.

  • Familiar CAD 
    BricsCAD Lite offers a familiar user interface, utilising the same standard full command, script, macro and menu compatibility that experienced CAD users are accustomed to. No adjustment period needed - just get set up and go.
  • Highly compatible with AutoCAD® LT 2021 
    100% compatible with printers, templates, blocks and sheet set layouts from your current CAD software, BricsCAD Lite is easy to migrate to. The software uses the same command names, aliases and system variables as AutoCAD, and utilises industry standard DWG to ensure the highest level of compatibility across CAD users.
  • LISP Routines 
    BricsCAD Lite is based on OpenLISP and designed to run existing LISP routines which may have been developed in AutoCAD and other CAD platforms. New LISP routines can be developed within the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment (BLADE).
  • Use your AutoCAD® Dynamic Blocks in BricsCAD 
    Created Dynamic Blocks in AutoCAD? Take full control of them from directly within BricsCAD, with the same stretch, flip, and rotate features.
  • Efficient CAD 
    Designed to help engineers, architects and designers work more efficiently, BricsCAD encompasses a range of unique tools powered by machine learning technologies which can help to reduce the time needed to get tasks to completion.
  • Fast and Stable CAD 
    Work with large files smoothly and seamlessly, with no drop in efficiency or slowing down of the process.

    BricsCAD is 2.7x faster when opening 500+ dwg files, and runs advanced LISP routines 2.8x faster than the industry standard AutoCAD.
  • Take real advantage of multi-core CPU's 
    BricsCAD assists in speeding up product performance for file loads, drawing generation and rendering by supporting multi-threaded, multi-processor operations.

BricsCAD Pro

Transition from 2D to 3D with all the features of BricsCAD Lite and more…

  • Powerful 3D Direct Modelling
    Edit solid and surface geometry with ease, thanks to BricsCAD’s intuitive direct modelling functionality. The interactive modelling feature dynamically changes the model display inline with the movement of the cursor. This feature can be used on all solids, no matter whether they’ve been created in BricsCAD or imported from other software.
  • Point Cloud Visualization
    Edit and import point clouds with ease in BricsCAD. Smart data representation pre-processes point clouds to a .vrm project file format in the background - using half the disk space so you can continue to crop, create section views and snap to the points whilst the caching process continues.
  • Drawing generation
    BricsCAD provides the ability to automatically generate standard isometric and associative orthographic views of 3D models. The software gives you complete control over the layout and style of the views - and designs can be documented using the impressive detailing tools available.
  • The Quad: drawing, editing, and information near the cursor
    Benefit from BricsCAD’s unique Quad command palette that anticipates the next command you’ll need, offering a one-click access to the command in question. BricsCAD utilises A.I. to recommend tools based on previous usage, to create a more streamlined, efficient way of working.

BricsCAD BIM

BricsCAD’s Building Information Modelling encompasses a 3D workflow for design, construction documentation and manufactured building products.

  • Classify,  replicate, automate
    Transform your concept study models into classified BIM models using the power of A.I. tools, and utilise BricsCAD’s A.I. powered workflows to increase the level of detail of your BIM.
  • Auto-classify building elements
    Save time with BIMIFY, which automatically assigns IFC entity classifications after analysing the geometry of each solid in the model so you don’t have to.
  • Auto-complete BIM data
    Streamline the process of completing BIM information across multiple entities and compositions with BricsCAD’s AUTOMATCH feature. The tool will identify compositions and make suggestions on adding these same properties across similar areas of the model.
  • Detailing & quantification
    BricsCAD software allows users to automatically add and duplicate information across their BIM, all whilst maintaining a supremely consistent level of accuracy and detail. Users can also export and send Bills of Materials from within the application.
  • Generate spectacular documentation
    Produce detailed, specific construction documentation within the BricsCAD application using automatic generation. Utilise the software’s tools to customise and annotate sections, elevations, drawing views and sheet layouts. The tool will automatically regenerate documentation with a change of BIM, to ensure everything remains in sync.

BricsCAD Mechanical

If you are an engineer that is looking to create complex hierarchies of parts and sub-assemblies, BricsCAD Mechanical could be for you.

Using bottom-up or top-down design methods, BricsCAD Mechanical users can deploy the Communicator for BricsCAD to import assemblies from different CAD systems, including Parametric geometry defined in those assemblies.

  • Parametric Standard Parts
    BricsCAD Mechanical boasts an in-depth library of over 30,000 standard mechanical components and 800+ different types. Customisable parameters are a guarantee with the software, too.
  • Assembly Joints, Kinematic Analysis and Animation
    BricsCAD allows you to analyse kinematics, assemble joints using 3D restraints and produce detailed 3D animations of any mechanism using these parametric relationships.
  • Materials and Mass Properties
    When assigning materials to parts of your assemblies, BricsCAD is able to compute weight, center of gravity and main inertia axes amongst other variables.
  • Exchange
    BricsCAD welcomes data imports from popular MCAD formats like Solidworks®, Inventor®, and Creo.
  • Sheet metal design
    Stop rebuilding your failed models and spend more time designing for manufacturability. BricsCAD Mechanical lets you create, import, rework and unfold sheet metal parts created using lofted solids.

BricsCAD Shape

BricsCAD Shape is a simple 3D modelling software, powered by a direct modelling engine which lets you create anything. Present your ideas and share, create & modify your designs with ease.

  • Smart architectural tools
    Create architectural prototypes quickly and efficiently with BricsCAD Shape. With Quickdraw, producing 3D building layouts has never been easier - add parametric windows and automatically generate a custom set of stairs with the click of a button.
  • Work on-line or off-line
    With BricsCAD, you don’t need to be connected to the internet to create your designs. The software installs and runs on your device, so you’re free to work online or offline, no matter where you are.

    If you need to keep track of file versions, changes and activity then rest assured that Bricsys 24/7 tracks this with full management visibility.
  • Users & Roles
    Bricsys 24/7 allows for unlimited users across projects, and each project member can access the file store. Admin users can set access rights dependent upon role and project.
  • Create workflows
    Use 24/7’s graphical workflow editor to make workflow automation simple. Automatically enter documents into a project workflow by adding them into a workflow folder, a foolproof way to ensure compliance within project management. Project managers are also given a top-down overview of project status using the tasks app.
