Custom BIM documentation templates
With drawing customization, you can create your own templates for 2D BIM documentation. Spot elevation tags are now included, and automated tag placement is smarter in V21. You can add custom symbolic representations and graphic line overrides on property-based queries. E.g. space area plans, life & fire safety plans, structural floorplans, ...
Quantification and QTO workflow
We’ve improved the workflow for quantity take-off and schedules, including the extraction of quantity data for individual composition plies. Also, we’re delivering a new properties framework that enables users to create their own, derived quantities, using formulas and expressions.
Create a BIM from a solid massing model
With BricsCAD BIM’s new massing tools, you can automatically generate a BIM from an (imported) massing model created in the conceptual design phase, allowing you to visually explore and evaluate design alternatives quickly.
Create Spaces and Zones
You have unlimited freedom to create Spaces and Zones, using a free-form Direct Modeling approach. Spaces can be simple or complex 3D volumes, or 2D abstractions. These methods deliver the freedom to specify building areas with full freedom.
Integration with Twinmotion
With a single click, you can send CAD and BIM data from BricsCAD V21 to the Twinmotion real-time rendering engine.
Import your RVT projects straight into BricsCAD importing all the geometry, enabling easy collaboration with teams using Revit®.
Import geometry from Autodesk® Revit®. RVT projects as a reference, or as native solids, to facilitate collaborative workflows in BricsCAD BIM V21.
IFC import mapping
Aside from IFC performance and stability improvements, you can map internal BIM types with IFC types during import/export giving more control over how entities are exchanged using IFC.
Scan to BIM
In BricsCAD BIM V21, we’re continuing the evolution of our Scan to BIM technology with scan alignment tools, planar surface geometry fitting and volume section generation from scan data.
Create planar patches & solids from point clouds
When a user selects a point in a point cloud, BricsCAD returns a planar patch that includes all points detected in the current plane. Users can then choose between a rectangular or polygonal boundary for the extracted patch. This rectangular surface can be extended to a planar solid, via automatic detection of nearby co-planar subsets of points.
Automatic story detection in Point Clouds
With POINTCLOUDDETECTFLOORS, you can automatically detect stories within the Point Cloud of a building. BricsCAD will automatically create a volume section for each of the detected floors.
Automatic line detection in Point Clouds
BricsCAD detects lines in point cloud data sets, automatically generating 2D layouts from 3D point clouds. For example, this feature can be used to extract floor plans from scan data.
