Create 2D technical drawings and floor plans + 3D direct modeling operations with BricsCAD.

BricsCAD is the modern CAD alternative. It is based on DWG, and it is compatible with everything you know. BricsCAD is available as a perpetual license that you can buy once and use forever.

BricsCAD offers unique tools to help you get more work done faster in 2D and 3D. Powered by advanced machine learning technologies, these workflows are designed to speed tasks that often take hours or more in the industry-standard CAD product.

A.I. tools in BricsCAD recognize your intent and help you optimize your 2D drawings and 3D models

  • There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – everything is 100% compatible and in DWG. 
  • You can run LISP routines developed in AutoCAD® and other CAD applications, and develop your own in BricsCAD (BLADE).
  • BricsCAD reads, displays and employs Dynamic Blocks created in AutoCAD® without restriction. 
  • Drawing Explorer centralizes in BricsCAD what in other CAD platforms amounts to as many separate dialog boxes. Easy to navigate, easy to search. 
  • A “head-up” command palette that predicts your command usages and offers one-click access to them.
  • A versatile tool that lets you move, copy, rotate, scale and mirror selected entities, without starting a specific command. 
  • Create accurately with a dynamic snap grid that changes to reflect your zoom level.
  • View and modify the distance between two entities without starting a command.
  • BricsCAD’s AI quickly adds parametric intelligence to otherwise dumb solids. It’s the fastest way to create families of smart, table-driven parts. 
  • BricsCAD supports multi-threaded, multi-processor operations to speed product performance for file loads, drawing generation and rendering.
  • BricsCAD uses Redway3D graphics system to deliver great performance in both 2D and 3D operations, regardless of drawing size.
  • We use a multi-resolution, persistent image cache to display PDF underlays, enabling super-fast zoom and pan operations.
