Sheet Metal design done right with BricsCAD

Creating new sheet metal parts or reworking existing ones? BricsCAD is your best choice. It is free of conceptual mistakes of history-based MCAD software. You will never need to restart your design from scratch, because we guarantee maximum flexibility for changing your models by combining the freedom of direct modeling with the power of feature-based design.

Import or create from scratch

Import Sheet Metal parts from any CAD system. Supported formats include neutral ones - such as STEP and IGES - native formats - such as CATIA, Inventor, SolidWorks - and kernel formats. Create the desired shape of the solid using direct modeling operations such as adding chamfers, creating a shell and creating a hole.

Prepare for production

By converting your parts to sheet metal, you can easily distinguish one sheet metal feature from another and visually validate them. Each of the sheet metal features – flanges, bends, junctions and reliefs - has its own assigned color.

Automatically unfold Sheet metal parts

BricsCAD Sheet Metal features one-click sheet metal parts unfolding. The software automatically detects and highlights any colliding bends. Once your design is ready for production, simply convert it to .dwg and .dxf files. You can add annotations for manufacturing with CAM systems.

Rework at any time

You will never need to restart your design from scratch. We guarantee maximum flexibility for changing your models by combining the freedom of direct modeling with the power of feature-based design.

Export to CAM systems

BricsCAD already exports sheet metal parts in .dxf or .osm formats for prepping for CNC programming by JETCAM and LVD systems. BricsCAD also generates .dxf files for CAM systems by CYBELEC and DELEM.
