BricsCAD Lite is an affordable multipurpose 2D CAD product, which is both innovative and stable. It enables organizations who design and build things to deliver accurate 2D drawings faster.
BricsCAD is built entirely on the industry standard DWG format, with full command, script, macro and menu compatibility.
BricsCAD feels like home!
There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – they are fully compatible. Command names, aliases, and system variables are the same in BricsCAD and AutoCAD®. BricsCAD is based on native DWG for the highest compatibility with other CAD users across all industries.
BricsCAD Lite fully supports LISP, and is compatible with AutoCAD®’s AutoLISP format, making it simple to reuse existing routines. Our advanced BLADE LISP environment allows you to quickly develop customizations that can slash the time it takes for repetitive drafting tasks.
BricsCAD offers unique tools to help you get more work done faster. Many of them are powered by advanced machine learning technologies to accelerate tasks that could take hours or more via manual methods.
BricsCAD’s Drawing Explorer centralizes what often amounts to many separate dialog boxes in other CAD platforms.
Easy to navigate, easy to search.
BLOCKIFY automatically creates a block definition and replaces all matching sets of entities with block references throughout your entire drawing. You can reduce DWG file size up to 90% by using Blockify to find repetitive geometry can covert it into block references.
BricsCAD’s unique Quad is a “head-up” command palette that predicts your command usage and offers one-click access to the command you’ll likely need next. Powered by machine learning, the Quad predicts the commands you will need, based on the unique way you use BricsCAD.
COPYGUIDED automatically aligns copied entities to relevant geometry using automatically generated guide curves. You can explicitly select entities to use as guide curves or let BricsCAD determine them based on the drawing elements in your selection.
Parametric blocks automate repetitive tasks by allowing users to create one block instead of lots of similar, separate block definitions. You can create 2D block definitions using the same set of tools and workflows that you are familiar with.
BricsCAD’s dynamic snap grid changes to reflect your zoom level. The adaptive grid snap feature lets you create, edit, nudge and manipulate entities using precise values without the need for keyboard entry. The snap step size adapts based on the current screen zoom factor.
With BricsCAD’s Dynamic UCS, the coordinate system is aligned automatically with the entity under your cursor. Tap the shift key to unlock the UCS, allowing you to start drawing outside of the selected entity or face. 2D users can increase their drawing productivity further, by automatically aligning the UCS with selected entities for both 2D and 3D.
When creating parametric 2D drawing elements, BricsCAD enables you to intelligently and automatically apply parameters and constraints with just one click. Applying geometric control for fast design changes and reuse now made easier and quicker.
OPTIMIZE corrects your drawing issues by automatically finding and healing inconsistancies, such as gaps and misalignments, which may otherwise be difficult to see. OPTIMIZE will certainly improve your drawing’s accuracy, which will result to a more cleaner and more efficient look.
The Manipulator is a versatile tool that lets you move, rotate, scale and mirror selected entities. If you hold down the Control key, when starting an action, the Manipulator will keep the original entities, automatically create copies of them. The Manipulator can act on single or multiple entities at once.
In each new version of BricsCAD, we strive to improve display performance. Enjoy smooth zoom and pan operations in drawings containing hundreds of thousands of entities.
