BricsCAD for Product Design and Manufacturing. The best choice for MCAD.
BricsCAD Mechanical - for Product Design and Manufacturing
BricsCAD Mechanical offers comprehensive mechanical design and documentation tools that work in BricsCAD’s familiar user environment – all in DWG! It used to be generally considered that the DWG format is not suitable for detailed mechanical assembly design, but that statement is now outdated (by about 20 years!).
Create or edit complex hierarchies of parts and subassemblies using the full power of direct modeling. Design parts and components by starting with a 2D sketch and revolving, extruding, and sweeping to create a 3D solid. You can also use built-in 3D primitives to specify the initial shape of your part. Then add more details using extrusions, fillets, chamfers or Boolean operations. You can also import 3D solids and edit them as native components, using the full power of direct modeling.
3D parametrise and constraints
The 'parametrize' A.I. workflow turns parts into smart, parameter-driven components in seconds. Build constraint systems, drive parts formulaically, build table-driven components and change component parameters in the BricsCAD Properties Panel.
Model features once and use them many times with powerful tools that copy existing features in 3D solids – such as holes, ribs, pockets.
Hole feature library
BricsCAD contains a library of standard hole features – you can easily insert holes into your parts via drag and drop actions.
Assembly Joints, Kinematic Analysis and Animation
Use 3D constraints to assemble joints in an assembly. Remaining degrees of freedom can be used to analyze the kinematics of the mechanism. You can create complex 3D animations controlled by these parametric relationships.
Automatically create drawing views of your 3D parts and assemblies. Detail views easily with dimensions, annotations, etc. If your 3D model changes, generated drawing views are updated automatically.
- Base views
- Projected views
- Section views
- Detail views
- BOM table
Check out BricsCAD BIM, or Ultimate for the best of both worlds.
You can create section views of 3D part and assemblies. Section planes can be defined by a line drawn on a base view, or you can create more complex sections: half sections, offset sections and aligned section views.
Fast generation of draft quality drawings
Speed drawing layout using fast, draft-quality views. Then, using multi-core CPUs, create precise views in record time. BricsCAD Mechanical is responsive to your inputs during background drawing generation.
Bill of Materials Table
The BOM panel lets you manage multiple BOM tables in your drawings. You can format each column individually, set up equations, sort tables, and more.
