BricsCAD Lite (formerly BricsCAD Classic)
BricsCAD Lite is the best choice for 2D drafting work. Make the most of what you already know with full command, script, macro and menu compatibility with the industry-standard CAD program.
BricsCAD Lite (formerly BricsCAD Classic)
Familiar 2D CAD Drafting functionality with powerful LISP customisation - The AutoCAD LT replacement with OpenLISP.
BricsCAD offers familiarity, efficiency, stability and connectivity so your migration from your existing CAD platform will be quick and simple, without the need to learn a brand new system.
BricsCAD Lite is highly compatible with AutoCAD LT.
BricsCAD Lite offers all the functionality of AutoCAD LT, and more, while still feeling familiar. Lite features the power of A.I., via machine learning workflows, so you can get more work done faster and more accurately. Migration is simple too - your existing menus and customisations move right over into BricsCAD!
There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD. Command names, aliases, and system variables are the same in BricsCAD as they are in AutoCAD.
- Command compatible
- Menu (.CUI, .CUIX) compatible
- Macro/script compatible
- Support file (.PC3, .LIN, .PAT, .DWT, .SSM) compatible
- Based on 2018 DWG technology
BricsCAD Lite lets you customise your drafting workflows with the full power of LISP. The vast majority of any existing LISP routines you have will load and run (up to 100x faster!), thanks to modern memory management and Bricsys' OpenLISP implementation.
BricsCAD offers unique tools to help you get more work done faster, many of which are powered by advanced machine learning technologies to accelerate and automate tasks. BricsCAD also takes real advantage of multi-core CPUs. Multi-threaded, multi-processor operations accelerate the product performance for file loads, rendering, and drawing generation.
The Bricsys 24/7 connection panel can be found inside BricsCAD, and it gives you direct access to the Bricsys cloud-based file storage and collaboration network.
Drawing, Editing, and Information
Powered by A.I, BricsCAD’s unique Quad is a command palette that predicts your command usage and offers one-click access to the command you’ll most likely need next.
Automatically Align Copied Entities
Explicitly select entities using CopyGuided which automatically aligns copied entities to relevant geometry using automatically generated guide curves.
View the distance between any two entities, and move the second one by simply typing in a new distance value - all without needing to start a command. The aligned nearest distances along the X-, Y- and Z-axes of the WCS display when you double-click an element in your drawing.
Using the Shift Key
With BricsCAD’s Dynamic UCS, the coordinate system is aligned automatically with the entity under your cursor. By tapping the Shift key, you can lock or unlock the UCS, which allows you to start drawing outside the selected entity or face. And 2D users can increase their drawing productivity by automatically aligning the UCS with selected entities for both 3D and 2D entities.
See a bird’s eye view of the entities that make up your drawing using the Structure Panel. You can select entities by category and perform actions on them. You can show or hide entities, isolate them, or zoom directly to them.
Rectangular and Polar Grids
BricsCAD provides both rectangular and polar grids with adaptive step size and dynamic origin placement to speed drawing creation. And geometric relationships between entities, like tangency and perpendicularity are shown graphically by lighting the touch-point on-screen.
Move, rotate, scale and mirror selected entities using the versatile Manipulator tool. Hold the Control key when starting an action, and Manipulator will keep the original entities, automatically creating copies of them. The Manipulator can act on single or multiple entities at once.
