Installing BricsCAD Shape

When it finishes downloading, the installer prompts you to accept the license agreement and install location. You can also choose to add a shortcut to the desktop and to automatically display release notes when the install completes.

If you’re sitting right there ready to respond to those prompts, the install only takes about one minute. So, don’t be tempted to take that coffee break just yet!

Once BricsCAD has finished installing you will have the option to use the full BricsCAD suite free for 30-days. If you do not purchase a license, the trial will revert back to BricsCAD Shape.

That’s all folks

Thanks for joining me on the first stop of my journey to BricsCAD Shape! I hope you had the opportunity to download and install BricsCAD Shape. Join me next week when we will continue our journey.
