Design Iterations

Extend your BricsCAD BIM AI-powered workflow with generative design and free-form modeling. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.


A volume study is an essential part of the design process. Choose your design parameters and visually program generative solutions in Grasshopper as mass models, then let BricsCAD BIM do the rest. Leverage the power of Artificial Intelligence in BricsCAD BIM to complete models and receive analytical feedback.

Design to BIM

Transform your free-form or generative design into a Building Information Model with the click of a button, or within your generative design script.


“If you’re a product engineer or architect, generative design fits into your engineering workflows with ease. The AI-assisted generative design revolution promises a very exciting future.”

Generative Detailing

Attach Grasshopper scripts to BricsCAD BIM entities with one click and no visual programming knowledge to view the parameters of the script in the properties of each entity. Switch previews on or off as needed then turn them into native BricsCAD BIM geometry.


Curtain wall BricsCAD BIM

Curtain walls

In the design stage, quickly explore numerous variations of your model with enough detail to assess variations against their real qualities, without losing momentum in your design process. Design multiple parametric versions of curtain walls and assess the impact on volume studies.

Wood framing - generative detailing

Wood framing

Apply Generative Detailing to regularly check details against the bigger scope of your project and easily apply the same detail to other locations. Change your regular wall into a wood framed wall while validating your solution every step of the way and apply one solution to various locations with one click.

2D to 3D with stairs with BricsCAD BIM

2D to 3D with stairs

Seamlessly toggle between 2D and 3D representation to check how your 2D element would look in the space. Once you have created your design, view it in 3D using a script attached to your design and easily change 3D parameters in the 2D properties. Re-use the script on all your 2D designs to maximize efficiency, switching off 3D preview when it is not needed.
