We have made it easier to find outliers in BricsCAD Pro V23.2 and enhanced the FINDOUTLIERS command - let's catch you up!

Valid region

This example begins with a land surveying DWG file – the 2D results of a scanned terrain. We want to place all the geometry around the origin to clean up the drawing.

Navigate to the Manage Tab in the ribbon and launch the FINDOUTLIERS command.

Specify a valid region.

Most of the geometry in this file is far from the valid region around the origin. If needed, change the valid region.

Inspecting Outliers

When you are happy with the valid region, you can inspect the outliers.
You can view outliers in the list view, where they are grouped into clusters.

In this example, you can see three clusters of outliers and one individual outlier. The bulk of this model consists of about 13,000 outliers, so you need to move this around the model's origin – which you can do with a single click.

Use the move function to move these outliers into the valid region.

Use the zoom function to inspect any remaining individual outliers.

Remove irrelevant outliers as needed.


For this example, you can see a group of geometry relevant to the model, so you need to move it to the origin.

You can manually move this geometry to the origin by choosing where to move the objects.

Once you are happy with the configuration, you can end the commands.

And that's it – you have centered all geometry around the origin in just a few clicks!

Artificial Intelligence in BricsCAD® Lite & Pro – What's the Point? Checking drawing health

In the previous blog post, we explained how automation and artificial intelligence are baked into key processes in BricsCAD® BIM to speed up your building design workflows. At Bricsys, we apply similar techniques across our BricsCAD® product portfolio, so we take the same approach with our flagship products BricsCAD® Lite and BricsCAD® Pro.
