BricsCAD® BIM is highly compatible with AutoCAD® 2022
One end-to-end BIM workflow for design, construction documentation, and manufactured building products.
There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – they are 100% 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.
Quickdraw takes sketching into the 3D realm. You can create and modify 3D room layouts as easily as sketching out a 2D floor plan. Creating and editing rectangular and L-shaped rooms and buildings has never been so fast.
Create a BIM from a solid massing model using Quick BuildingV21
QuickBuilding supports iterative and generative design workflows, quickly transforming a solid massing model into a conceptual BIM model with slabs, walls, and spaces -- helping the designer to explore many design options in an early design phase.
Create Spaces and Zones
You have unlimited freedom to create Spaces and Zones, using a free-form Direct Modeling approach. Spaces can be simple or complex 3D volumes, or 2D abstractions. These methods deliver the freedom to specify building areas with full freedom.
Classify, replicate, automate
Leverage the power of A.I. tools to automatically convert your concept study models to fully classified BIM models (LOD 200). Then, increase the LOD of your BIM continuously using the power of BricsCAD BIM’s A.I.-powered workflows.
Auto-classify building elements
BIMIFY examines the geometry of each solid in the model, then detects and automatically assigns IFC entity classifications. This automated classifier can save hours of work in the creation of a BIM.
AUTOMATCH will automatically match and c
Drive a consistent level of detail (LOD) across your entire BIM, automatically. Adjust a composition ply at a ceiling / wall juncture and replicate that change across the BIM, wherever you need it. You always have full control over the suggestions Propagate makes.
Detailing & quantification
Increase your model’s LOD by adding information, and duplicating it at any or all matching instances across your BIM, automatically. With high accuracy and consistent Level of Detail across the entire BIM, exact quantity takeoffs and Bills of Materials can be extracted, displayed and exported.
Propagate 2D detail
The Propagate workflow in BricsCAD BIM can be used to replicate architectural and structural details across an entire BIM. Details can be automatically parameterized, then stored, managed and used from the detail library. These custom components can be re-used across different stages of the design process, and across multiple projects.
User Configurable QuantitiesV21
With BricsCAD BIM, you can create a custom quantity framework to meet your standards. Any BIM classification type can be assigned a custom quantity and you can choose how each quantity is calculated.
Any data – quantities, properties, etc. – can be extracted from drawings or the BIM project. These data can be placed in a generated table, or a linked .csv file. BricsCAD BIM also supports advanced filtering to extract just the properties that you want or need.
