Belgian group Bricsys launches advanced CAD system

LONDON, November 20, 2018

Bricsys, a leading Belgium company and a global provider of .dwg engineering design software, has announced the launch of BricsCAD V19, the most advanced .dwg-based CAD system.

It extends BricsCAD’s familiar, cost-effective workflows for general drafting, mechanical design and Building Information Modelling.

With this launch, the future of the .dwg format is secure, said a statement from the company.

It extends BricsCAD’s familiar, cost-effective workflows for general drafting, mechanical design and Building Information Modelling.

All of these workflows are now available in a single product family. There are hundreds of new features, workflow improvements and fixes in this new, major version of BricsCAD, said the statement.

Some of the most exciting new features in BricsCAD V19 are:

Blockify - which finds repetitive geometry and automatically creates blocks to reduce .dwg size. It works for both 2D and 3D geometry.

2D drafting and sketching is faster with the new nearest distance dynamic dims, “nudge”, and adaptive snap steps that work together to make drawing accurately easy.

A host of user interface enhancements take the BricsCAD experience to a new level. Bricsys has simplified workspaces and added a new panel to monitor and manage drawing attachments. A dockable parameters panel helps to access and change values easily.

The new CUI management and Settings management tools strive to make life easier. New live datalink tools, DGN file & PDF import, and point cloud visualization features help round out just a few of the major new additions to BricsCAD V19.

BricsCAD BIM proves the viability of .dwg as a core format for real 3D BIM, said the Belgian company.
BricsCAD BIM V19 delivers an efficient, full 3D workflow that starts in 3D and stays in 3D. It utilizes AI to connect layered compositions quickly, consistently and correctly. This promises exquisitely executed quantity take-offs and truly accurate detailing, across the entire model.

The new, simplified UI will speed things up, whilst the curtain wall command makes short work of designing facades. BIM components can now be created by just importing and parameterizing RFA files and can then be added directly to a model via drag-and-drop, it added.

Bricsys said it has combined the BricsCAD Platinum edition together with Sheet Metal for BricsCAD to create the all-new BricsCAD Mechanical. It brings the power of direct modelling, constraints, and parametrics to give the ultimate 3D modelling freedom for mechanical designers.

New and enhanced parametric components, associative arrays, and component-based features now make short work of both 2D and 3D families of parts. Create sheet metal parts from scratch, an existing solid or even from parts imported from other CAD systems, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
