When it comes to 2D CAD work, we’ve been stuck with the same tools and processes for at least a decade. There’s been a distinct lack of improvement in the 2D CAD world from the big names in our industry. Luckily, that’s changing, and it’s changing quickly and dramatically. BricsCAD is the new name in the CAD world and it’s putting forward a pretty amazing set of 2D tools, that can open and work on the DWG files you’re already using, without the need for conversion or translation. Now, I know that the idea of changing CAD systems can be daunting, but we put together a short series of videos to show you what we mean when we say “Better, Faster and Smarter”. A picture, or video in this case, is worth a thousand words, so just take a moment to watch these videos and see how BricsCAD makes your daily CAD work much easier than you ever thought it could be. Keep your eyes out for more of these videos in the near future – we’ll post them here regularly.
BricsCAD: Copying and Moving Objects
In this short video, we’ll show you the CopyGuided and MoveGuided tools in BricsCAD which allow you to copy or move entities accurately with their relative geometry. We’ll also show how you can copy an entity and specify an array so you can speed up your layout process.
BricsCAD: Blockify and Manipulator Tools
In this short video, we introduce you to the Blockify and Manipulator tools inside BricsCAD. The Blockify tool finds all instances of selected linework and converts them all into blocks. The Manipulator tool allows you edit the location of entities without using multiple commands.
