Create any shape easily using BricsCAD’s powerful 3D Direct Modeler. Free from the limitations of history-based systems, BricsCAD’s Direct Modeler treats native and imported geometry the same way.
“If you’re an engineer who is used to working in 2D, it is much easier to start working in 3D with BricsCAD than with any other tool, because you can just follow the same intuitive pattern.”
Hristo Guentchev, Managing Director at Prototyp
Parts & Assembly Design
Sheet metal design
Create or edit complex hierarchies of parts and subassemblies
using the full power of direct modeling
3D parametrize and constraints
The PARAMETRIZE A.I. workflow turns parts into smart, parameter-driven components in seconds. Build constraint systems, drive parts formulatically, build table-driven components and change component parameters in the BricsCAD Properties Panel.
Model features once and use them many times with powerful tools that copy existing features in 3D solids – such as holes, ribs, pockets.
Hole feature library
BricsCAD contains a library of standard hole features – you can easily insert holes into your parts via drag and drop actions.
The best, most familiar workflow for turning your mechanical designs into production drawings.
Automatically create drawing views of your 3D parts and assemblies. Detail views easily with dimensions, annotations, etc. If your 3D model changes, generated drawing views are updated automatically.
You can create section views of 3D part and assemblies. Section planes can be defined by a line drawn on a base view, or you can create more complex sections: half sections, offset sections and aligned section views.
BricsCAD Mechanical allows you to automatically create detail views from any existing view in your drawing layout.
Fast generation of draft quality drawings
Speed drawing layout using fast, draft-quality views. Then, using multi-core CPUs, create precise views in record time. BricsCAD Mechanical is responsive to your inputs during background drawing generation.
Automated Drawing Generation
Experience a familiar workflow for the creation of drawing layouts. Change a single part or the entire assembly, and all 2D drawing views are automatically updated.
Bill of Materials Table
The BOM panel lets you manage multiple BOM tables in your drawings. You can format each column individually, set up equations, sort tables, and more.
BricsCAD Mechanical creates associative balloons for each component in an assembly, and manages the display of those tags in all automatically generated 2D view.
