Extend your BricsCAD BIM AI-powered workflow with generative design and free-form modeling. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.
For volume studies
For steel design
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.”
Richard Conn, Senior Director at RingCentral
Classify geometry intelligently with BIMIFY
Do you have a generative design that needs fast BIM classification after being converted into native BricsCAD geometry? Would you like to classify elements within in a free-form geometry that you made in Rhinoceros and transferred to BricsCAD? BricsCAD BIM’s Artificial Intelligence tool Bimify can do this for you with the push of a button. Use Bimify to classify solid geometry so you can filter your model and add more data rapidly.
Add BIM data to a generative design script
Using the Grasshopper-BricsCAD connection you can immediately add BIM data to your generative design script. This means that whenever you transfer your design to BricsCAD, the BIM data will be there, for every variant you explore.
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.
Detail your BIM model by attaching a Grasshopper script with
a single click. The preview will immediately show you how the Generative Detail looks on the entities it is attached to.
Easily change parameters
Select an entity with a Grasshopper script attached to it.
Go to the Properties Panel and find the dedicated parameters of the script. See how the preview reacts to a change in these parameters. Finally, toggle the preview on or off with one button.
Push preview to BricsCAD
Once you have found a preview you want to use in BricsCAD BIM, select the ‘Bake Geometry’ button to turn it into a native BricsCAD entity. If specified in the script, you can add BIM data to previews as you go.
