BricsCAD – Basics of Mechanical Design

$525 per person (in the US and Canada) | 8 CPC/CEU credits

BricsCAD Mechanical offers a powerful suite of design tools for all aspects of mechanical design. Whether you’re drafting, modeling or doing kinematic analysis, BricsCAD handles it all, using the native DWG format. Featuring a familiar interface derived from 2D CAD software and an emphasis on parametric direct modeling, BricsCAD is an ideal solution for anyone with 2D CAD experience looking to transition to an affordable and capable mechanical design environment. ZenTek Consultants is here to help you make that transition, by presenting the basics of BricsCAD Mechanical’s unique environment. This course is perfect for students with basic solid modeling experience and will be very useful for more advanced staff, looking for a better, faster way to model.

​This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: Instructor will present using BricsCAD Pro V24. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.
