Professional CAD software without compromise
Accelerate your time to deliverable without compromising on performance, cost, licensing flexibility, and data security.
BricsCAD brings power and affordability to desktop CAD
What is 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 comes with a simple premise. You should be able to use the software on the platform of your choice (PC, Mac, Linux) with the licensing option you prefer (annual, network, perpetual, with or without maintenance). You are in control. BricsCAD’s productivity features will save you time. It’s licensing options will save you money.
For 2D drafting & 3D modeling
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.
AutoCAD® 2021 compatible
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).
Use AutoCAD® Dynamic Blocks
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.
Adaptive grid snapping
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.
Leverage multi-core CPUs
BricsCAD supports multi-threaded, multi-processor operations to speed product performance for file loads, drawing generation and rendering.
High performance graphics engine
BricsCAD uses Redway3D graphics system to deliver great performance in both 2D and 3D operations, regardless of drawing size.
PDF and BIG TIFF underlay
We use a multi-resolution, persistent image cache to display PDF underlays, enabling super-fast zoom and pan operations.
