Find the best AutoCAD® – Alternative? Get to know BricsCAD. Bricscad enables every draftsman, engineer, architect, surveyor and designer to achieve more – and at a lower total cost of ownership. Switch from AutoCAD® to BricsCAD in just one hour. Become productive in less than a day.
Why BricsCAD is more than an AutoCAD® alternative:
– DWG compatible – Automatic transfer of configurations and customizations – No forced lease, just flexible licensing – Immediately familiar to AutoCAD® users – Intelligent CAD tools – Support for multi-threaded and multi-core operations
Bricscad opens and saves DWG files directly for maximum compatibility with AutoCAD® . Bricsys is a founding member of the Open Design Alliance, the trusted second source for AutoCAD® DWG compatibility, so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues or data loss between systems. You can open a DWG file in your current CAD system, edit it in BricsCAD, save it and then open it in your other CAD system without conversion. All your standard configurations work in BricsCAD. Custom applications continue (d.H.H. CTB/STB files, layer states, templates, tools, etc.). Just show BricsCAD the location on your servers or copy them to the appropriate BricsCAD folder on your local computer.
Inexpensive and without forced rent
Unlike other CAD software, BricsCAD offers the most flexible CAD licensing model. Choose to purchase or rent, network or standalone. Or combine to get the solution that makes the most sense to you.
The best of everything? A BricsCAD purchase license costs about half the price of an annual AutoCAD® lease.
Immediately familiar for AutoCAD® users
Bricscad has full command, script, macro and menu compatibility with AutoCAD® 2021. Switch to BricsCAD, and your current menus, scripts, and LISP routines will run right away, without changes.
No need to change your default printers, templates, blocks, or plan layouts to introduce BricsCAD® Bring them into BricsCAD immediately and feel right at home. You can use these tools as usual. Use your muscle memory to work with BricsCAD in an hour and be efficient in a day.
Intelligent CAD tools for more efficient workflows
Bricscad® is not merely an AutoCAD® alternative it is a rapidly evolving CAD software that incorporates artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to improve your workflows.
Support for multi-threaded and multi-core operations
While accessing a CAD database is generally a serial process, BricsCAD uses multi-core CPUs to speed up drawing loading, detail view creation, and rendering. We are constantly reviewing and improving code to take advantage of today's hardware platforms, while remaining lean and fast to ensure excellent performance of our state-of-the-art hardware.
