Running BricsCAD in trial mode

Each time you start BricsCAD in trial mode the BricsCAD - Free Trial dialog opens.

Feature levels

In trial mode BricsCAD runs as full Platinum version without any feature restrictions.

The RunAsLevel preference setting allows to run BricsCAD in a lower license level mode, e.g. a Platinum version can be run as a Pro or a Classic, a Pro can be run as a Classic.

This facilitates evaluation of the features available for each license level.

  1. In BricsCAD, in the Settings dialog box, go to the RunAsLevel preference or, on the command line, type "RunAsLevel".

  2. Enter the value for the level you want to try: 0 = Classic, 1 = Pro, 2 = Platinum (default).

  3. Restart BricsCAD to apply the changes.
