“Why should we consider BricsCAD for our Company?”

I get this question a lot, so it seems fitting to start our Q&A series with it. But there’s not just one reason you should consider BricsCAD – there are many. I’ll start with my favorite 7 reasons to move to BricsCAD:

1. BricsCAD offers innovative AI/machine learning tools like BLOCKIFY and PARAMETRIZE to speed your workflows

BricsCAD® isn’t a clone – it’s a rapidly evolving, powerful CAD platform with features the competition simply doesn’t have. Check out these examples from Heidi Hewett’s Blog entries:

2. BricsCAD delivers an IT-friendly, compact deployment – the installer is approximately 355MB – and all product versions are contained in this single installer

No more downloading 8 different, huge installation packages. Just download the one installer and the correct version will be authorized based on your license key. Simple and fast.

3. BricsCAD offers fairly-priced perpetual licenses – or you can rent BricsCAD if you wish

  • All-In Maintenance keeps you up to date with the latest releases
  • Licenses work anywhere on Earth with no cost uplift
  • BricsCAD® offers network and volume licensing, too
  • Licenses work on any of 15 language versions
  • And allow two activations – e.g. a desktop and a laptop

Get perpetual licenses or rent if it makes sense for you. The point is – it’s YOUR choice!

4. BricsCAD supports multi-threaded, multi-processor operations to speed product performance

The bit coded MTFLAGS system variable allows highly specific control over parallel tasking performance. With multi-threading, BricsCAD® can take real advantage of multi-core CPUs.

5. BricsCAD reads and writes 2018 .dwg with superb fidelity

And BricsCAD BIM, along with BricsCAD® Mechanical, store all data in .dwg files as well.

6. BricsCAD is highly compatible with the industry-leading CAD program

  • It’s command compatible
  • It’s menu (.CUI) compatible
  • It’s macro/script compatible
  • It’s support file (.PC3, .LIN, .PAT, .DWT, .SSM) compatible

If you know AutoCAD®, you can learn BricsCAD® in an hour

You won’t have to change your standard printers, templates, blocks or sheet sets to adopt BricsCAD® – use them just like you normally would.

7. BricsCAD offers a full Visual LISP API in all editions – Classic, Pro & Platinum

You won’t have to abandon your customized LISP routines to adopt BricsCAD® – just load them in using APPLOAD or the ON_START.LSP file and you’re good to go.
