Intelligent Mechanical Design

BricsCAD makes advanced mechanical design accessible. It is intelligent, flexible, affordable and, above all, enables greater design freedom.

“BricsCAD Mechanical has enabled our team to set even higher standards for structural and mechanical drawings”

BricsCAD’s unique variational 3D modelling approach gives you the freedom to design how you want to, from concept to detail, with whatever level of parametric control you need.

Quickly develop complex components on their own, or directly within an assembly.

Design parts and components - BricsCAD Mechanical

Design parts and components

With BricsCAD Mechanical, the design process is simple. Start your design with a 2D sketch, then extrude, revolve or sweep it to create a 3D solid. You can also use built-in 3D primitives to specify the initial shape of your part. Move on to the details using extrusions, fillets, chamfers, Boolean operations, and edit using dynamic direct modeling. You control as much or as little of the form as you like with parameters. You can also import 3D solids and edit them as native components.

Efficient 2D Detailing

BricsCAD offers the best, and most familiar, workflow for turning your mechanical designs into production drawings.

Multi-CAD Connectivity
