BricsCAD Pro is ideal for 2D drafting as well as 3D Direct modeling and the use of third-party applications. Use the knowledge you already have with full command, script, macro and menu compatibility with the industry-standard CAD program.
BricsCAD Pro - Technical 2D Drawings and 3D Modeling
BricsCAD Pro features 2D and 3D CAD capabilities with support for 3rd party applications.
BricsCAD Pro is the right choice for anyone who wants more power and tools, and those who want access to the hundreds of third party applications built on the BRX API. All the advanced parametric solid modelling features found in BricCAD Platinum (and much, more more) can now be found in Pro. Combine a powerful 3D constraint engine, automatic parameterisation, parametric components and arrays, and the 3D Direct modelling engine for unparalleled design freedom.
BricsCAD Pro also includes the civil modelling workflow with automatic TIN surface generation, gradings, corridors, and alignments.

BricsCAD is highly compatible with AutoCAD
Just like BricsCAD Lite, Pro is highly compatible with AutoCAD. There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – they are 100% compatible. Command names, aliases, and system variables are the same in BricsCAD and AutoCAD. BricsCAD is based on native DWG for the highest compatibility with other CAD users across all industries. You can even run LISP routines developed in AutoCAD and other CAD applications, and develop your own in the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment (BLADE). BricsCAD is based on OpenLISP, with modern memory management and great performance.
Third Party Applications
The BricsCAD Runtime eXtension (BRX) API enables developers to create tools and workflows for BricsCAD. Get work done faster with over 400 third party tools suited for plant design, GIS, HVAC, AEC, scaffolding, and much more.
Powerful 3D Direct Modelling
BricsCAD offers intuitive direct modeling functionality for editing solid and surface geometry. Direct modeling operations are interactive and changes to the model display dynamically as you move your mouse. You can use direct modeling operations on all solids, whether you create them in BricsCAD or import them from other modeling applications.
- COPY FACES
- FILLET & CHAMFER
Parametric blocks automate repetitive tasks by allowing users to create one block instead of lots of similar, separate block definitions. You can create both 2D and 3D block definitions using the same set of tools and workflow that you are familiar with.
Point Cloud Visualisation
BricsCAD uses an improved data representation to speed the performance of point cloud display, using half of the disk space versus the point cloud source files. Point clouds in .ptx, .pts, .las and .rcp formats are pre-processed to our .vrm project file format in the background on your computer, letting you continue your work during the caching process.
Civil Engineering Site Tools
BricsCAD offers extended modeling workflows for creating and editing TIN surfaces, grading, and alignments. No object enablers are required to view and analyze Civil geometry.
Align Copied Entities
CopyGuided automatically aligns copied entities to relevant geometry using automatically generated guide curves. You can explicitly select entities to use as guide curves or let BricsCAD determine them based on the drawing elements in your selection.
You can automatically generate associative orthographic and standard isometric views of your 3D models, with full control over the layout and style of the views. Then, use the powerful detailing tools in BricsCAD to document your designs.
View the distance between any two entities, and move the second one by simply typing in a new distance value. This happens without needing to start a command. Additionally, the aligned nearest distances along the X-, Y- and Z-axes of the WCS display when you double-click an element in your drawing.
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.
What is Communicator?
Communicator for BricsCAD seamlessly imports geometry & PMI data from all major CAD applications, helping you to import and export high-fidelity 3D CAD files. BricsCAD Communicator runs on BricsCAD Pro, Platinum, BIM, Mechanical and Ultimate.
