BricsCAD®. REAL Choice. A powerful CAD platform,
with features familiar to you from native .dwg applications. BricsCAD® unifies advanced 2D design with the intelligence of 3D direct modeling.
For Windows, Linux, and Mac.
The features you know and love. And more.
BricsCAD offers CAD features familiar from other .dwg programs, and then adds timesaving tools and 3D direct modeling. With BricsCAD, you get more for less.
Enhanced by new productivity tools and AI-driven workflows, BricsCAD® V20 is another step in our master plan to provide the world with the ultimate CAD workflow.
BricsCAD® V20: the ultimate CAD workflow
Introducing the latest release from the global leader in .dwg-based Computer-Aided Design solutions.
Enhanced by new productivity tools and AI-driven workflows, BricsCAD® V20 delivers an ultimate workflow for general drafting, mechanical design and Building Information Modeling. Serving multiple vertical markets via one best-in-class platform, with one .dwg-based foundation, is what BricsCAD® does best.
Our development velocity brings you a value proposition that cannot be matched in the CAD software industry. BricsCAD® is fast, familiar and futuristic – all at the same time. With class-leading performance, tools you already know, and the power of machine learning, BricsCAD® delivers everything you need for less cost than you might imagine.
Dark UI, Expandable Panels, Start Tab
You asked for it – and we delivered. In BricsCAD® V20, you can toggle between the classic light user interface and the new Dark UI with a click. New expandable panels, consistent and familiar workspaces, and BricsCAD’s new Start tab will speed your design tasks.
New and improved productivity tools, such as Copy Guided and Blockify, take advantage of the leading developments in AI and machine learning to automate repetitive, multi-step tasks like copying geometry and converting entities into blocks.
New Civil Modeling Tools
Leveraging our geometry expertise, BricsCAD® V20 offers extended modeling workflows for creating and editing TIN surfaces, grading, and alignments. Now, you can create, visualize, and analyze Civil designs in real-time with excellent performance and CAD accuracy.
Best of all? No object enablers are required to view and analyze Civil geometry. And this new functionality is backed by a rich API that will allow Bricsys Collective partners to build powerful analytics tools for Civil Engineering design.
Bricsys 24/7® Panel
We’re bringing the power of Bricsys 24/7® collaboration to the BricsCAD® V20 product family. Deeply integrated into BricsCAD® V20, Bricsys 24/7 combines cloud storage with the desktop capabilities of Computer-Aided Design, to streamline and improve collaboration between design team members.247 cloud computing CAD design team members.
The user interface of the web application was not only re-designed but also reengineered from the ground up using the latest technologies, making the entire product much faster and smoother to work with. In V20, we introduce a native 24/7 Application for iOS and Android devices. With a direct link to the design team wherever you go, you can speed through site inspections and follow-ups in record time. And best of all, the new Bricsys 24/7® Free features and cloud storage are introduced to all BricsCAD® Maintenance customers at no extra cost.
Bricsys 24/7® is our SaaS-based Common Data Environment (CDE). It is used to manage documents, routings, and communications for large-scale building and construction products daily. In use for over a decade, with hundreds of thousands of users in the Benelux region of Europe, Bricsys 24/7 is the CDE beyond compare.
