We have given the OPTIMIZE command a UI overhaul both for 2D and 3D designs. OPTIMIZE calculates the gap tolerance to close the gaps, fix inaccuracies in the drawing, and works in both 2D and 3D spaces. Let’s take a look! Checking drawing details In this example you can see that there are many gaps between lines, or the lines are skewed
In the previous blog post, we explained how automation and artificial intelligence are baked into key processes in BricsCAD® BIM to speed up your building design workflows. At Bricsys, we apply similar techniques across our BricsCAD product portfolio, so we take the same approach with our flagship products BricsCAD Lite and BricsCAD Pro. Disruptive technologies based on the .DWG file format
Drafting floor plans with 2D tools may seem fast initially, but managing changes in floorplans is a manual task that is prone to error – and when designs become complex, they become a lot more tedious. With BricsCAD® BIM’s 3D tools, you can deliver floor plans more quickly, efficiently, and without tedium. How to create a floorplan in BricsCAD® BIM BricsCAD®

This prevents me from exporting my
Generative AI is quite a buzzword, but that doesn’t mean it’s a fad. The architecture and engineering sectors will adopt this technology more quickly as a greater number of solutions become available to solve nicely bound problems – like classifying 3D objects into building elements and engineering system classes. So, how and why are we using Generative AI in BricsCAD®?
V23.2 of BricsCAD Pro for Civil has arrived, and it’s chock full of several enhancements to make designing in BricsCAD smoother and more efficient. Let’s go through the enhanced features and how to use them! The Civil Explorer BricsCAD Pro’s Civil Explorer has been revamped and now offers a more intuitive, user-friendly interface that makes it easier to create and
Cam solutions optimized for your needs One of the biggest impacts you can have on assembly performance is to simplify parts, especially if they are re-used often. For example, if your model includes a lot of hardware, you likely don’t need details – like helical threads, markings on the head, or small fillets of a bolt – to show up
BricsCAD® V23.2 is here, and it comes jam-packed with new features and enhancements that make CAD design even easier and more intuitive. Let’s take a look at some of the updated features, and how to use them! New QT-Based Ribbon: One of the biggest updates to BricsCAD V23.2 is the enhanced QT-based Ribbon. While this feature is optional for now, it
1. Filtered search Did you know you can get the Settings dialog to display only the settings that match your search term? This can save you lots of time when you are looking for a setting but aren’t sure where to find it or precisely what it’s called. To access this: 2. DELETETOOL Keep all the entities you’re using during
The Interface Settings dialog is new in BricsCAD Version 23. Designed to help you make BricsCAD your own. It makes simple customizations, such as changing the color theme or panel docking system, a sinch. Why did we implement this? One of the best things about BricsCAD is that it’s highly customizable. However, the Settings dialog can at times, feel a

If you come from an AutoCAD® design environment, you may be familiar with Dynamic Blocks. BricsCAD offers some Dynamic block editing capabilities with Dynamic Grips. Read on to see what you can do with Dynamic Grips in BricsCAD. 1) Flip Grip Flip Grip allows you to flip a dynamic block on both the horizontal and the vertical axis very simply.
Is your CAD system lagging? Leverage BricsCAD Machine Intelligence to make your CAD faster and smarter, and speed up your workflow. There is a way to reduce dwg file size, without losing information, and without spending hours deleting, re-inserting, and manually tidying up your drawings. 1 Reduce dwg file size So, here’s the situation, you’ve just been given a .dwg file. It’s huge. It’s taking
If you’re thinking about making the switch to BricsCAD for AutoCAD® users, even with minimal AutoCAD® experience, the transition is easy and painless. BricsCAD works very much like AutoCAD® and supports much of the same functionality including Xrefs, plotting, sheetsets, PDF attach/import, viewports, etc. The tips and pointers here will help speed up your transition as well as provide familiarity and insight into
Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Computer-Aided Design has come a long way since it was pitched by the architect Nicolas Negroponte in the 1970s. Many technological advances are based on Machine Learning algorithms; algorithms that are helping to edge AI to the top of the list of BIM trends, with the greatest potential to improve the design process.
