Building Information Modeling software has taken over architecture and civil planning - and BricsCAD BIM makes it simple for firms to jump into this vital technology. Design your new projects in true 3D with solids that you can sculpt to your needs. You aren't limited to existing primitives, allowing you to quickly create highly detailed 3D CAD models of the structure under development. BricsCAD BIM allows you to focus on creative design and problem-solving, rather than getting bogged down in tedious software details.
The benefits of BricsCAD BIM don't end with the 3D modeling - it also allows you to easily create robust documentation, automatically derived from the 3D CAD files. Plans, Details, Sections, bills of materials, construction instructions, and more can all be generated with ease. Plus, BricsCAD 24/7 collaboration means you are ready to share your project in progress with the client, and receive feedback, at any time.

A fresh look at BIM
In BricsCAD BIM, design decisions come first, and machine learning algorithms automate the laborious tasks of manipulating BIM data, documentation, and levels of detail.
Design to BIM
You can find a flexible, direct modeling tool and a professional CAD product in the same DWG platform. Design geometry can directly be converted to BIM elements.
Easiest transition from CAD to BIM
CAD users can seamlessly transition from their design environment to BricsCAD BIM. Spending less on software and training while avoiding performance dips during transition lowers the barriers to entry.
BIM to Fabrication
BricsCAD Ultimate offers a unified workflow with continuously developing levels of detail that connect design, BIM, and fabrication into a single process on one shared .DWG platform.

Managing construction documentation
BIM authoring and modeling
Convert to smart BIM
Experience design freedom with a 3D workflow that is not limited by pre-defined parts or libraries components. Use intuitive push-pull direct modeling to sculpt your mass-model concept. Your model remains light and responsive, because it’s not over-loaded or over-constrained.
Quickdraw takes sketching into the 3D realm. You can create and modify 3D room layouts as easily as sketching out a 2D floor plan. Creating and editing rectangular and L-shaped rooms and buildings has never been so fast and easy.
Create a BIM from a solid massing model using Quick Building
QUICKBUILDING supports iterative and generative design workflows, quickly transforming a solid massing model into a conceptual BIM model with slabs, walls, and spaces - helping the designer to explore many design options early in the design phase.
Create Spaces and Zones
You have unlimited freedom to create Spaces and Zones using a free-form Direct Modeling approach. Spaces can be simple or complex 3D volumes, or 2D abstractions. These methods deliver the freedom to specify building areas.
Bi-directional link with Grasshopper
There’s a live, two-way link between the BricsCAD BIM modeler and McNeel’s Rhinoceros®/Grasshopper to bridge the gap between early-stage generative design and BIM, by translating geometric entities into BIM elements.
Visualize your design at every phase of the workflow with BricsCAD BIM. With a single click, you can start real-time rendering using Enscape, Twinmotion or Lumion and walk through your fully-rendered model project.
Classify, replicate, automate
Leverage the power of A.I. tools to automatically convert your concept study models to fully-classified BIM models (LOD 200). Then, increase the LOD of your BIM continuously using the power of BricsCAD BIM’s A.I.-powered workflows.
Auto-classify building elements
BIMIFY examines the geometry of each solid in the model, then detects and automatically assigns IFC entity classifications. This automated classifier can save hours of work in the creation of a BIM.
Auto-complete BIM data
AUTOMATCH will automatically match and complete BIM information across multiple entities, such as missing compositions, properties, and more. Add compositions to a wall, and AUTOMATCH will suggest adding that composition to every matching wall in the entire BIM.
Drive a consistent level of detail (LOD) across your entire BIM, automatically. Adjust a composition ply at a ceiling/wall juncture and replicate that change across the BIM, wherever you need it. You always have full control over the suggestions Propagate makes.
Detailing and quantification
Increase your model’s LOD by adding information and duplicating it in any or all matching instances across your BIM automatically. With high accuracy and consistent Level of Detail across the entire BIM, exact quantity takeoffs and Bills of Materials can be extracted, displayed, and exported.
Propagate 2D detail
The Propagate workflow can be used to replicate architectural and structural details across an entire BIM. Details can be automatically parameterized, then stored, managed., and used from the detail library. These custom components can be re-used across different stages of the design process and across multiple projects.
User Configurable Quantities
With BricsCAD BIM, you can create a custom quantity framework to meet your standards. Any BIM classification type can be assigned a custom quantity and you can choose how each quantity is calculated.
Any data – quantities, properties, etc. – can be extracted from drawings or the BIM project. These data can be placed in a generated table, or a linked .csv file. BricsCAD BIM also supports advanced filtering to extract just the properties that you want or need.
Generate spectacular documentation
Create clear and accurate construction documentation in record time, using the automatic generation of sections, elevations, drawing views and sheet layouts. You can always customize them using the world’s best drafting and annotation tools. Change your BIM, and all associated drawing views will be regenerated automatically to stay in total synch with the model.
Fast Drawing Generation
In BricsCAD BIM, drawing view generation is threaded across multi-core CPUs, to keep you working smoothly while drawings and sheet sets are being generated.
Type plan templates
With user configurable type plan templates, you can generate and customize any plan layout (architectural, structural, fire & life safety, etc.) using 2D graphical overrides for BIM elements, and custom annotations & tags.
BIM Project Browser
Create and manage 2D drawings, sections, and schedules from the integrated Project Browser. Everything is organized and well-structured in one place.
Place and update tags & dimensions automatically with BricsCAD BIM’s automatic annotation tools.
Deliver custom designs for Manufactured Building Products
The accuracy of BricsCAD BIM offers new horizons for manufacturers of building products. Custom components can be designed and shared as assemblies, for use within the BIM or on the shop floor for fabrication.
Manufacturers of building components can create production-ready assemblies in BricsCAD® Mechanical, then share their designs as libraries of components for use with BricsCAD BIM.
The Parametrize workflow lets you create intelligent, fully parametric building components in seconds, without the hassle of manual parameter and constraint assignment.
Parts and Assemblies
Manufacturers of building components can work in BricsCAD Mechanical or other mechanical design systems, then share their designs as libraries of components for BricsCAD BIM.
BricsCAD BIM supports building mechanical services in full 3D. The intuitive modeling tools let you create HVAC ducts and pipes as flow segments. These segments can be automatically connected via bends, T-connections, and automatic branching.
Scan to BIM
Using point clouds for renovation closes the circle of our end-to-end workflow. Enjoy the flexibility of direct modeling tools to create a truly accurate model of the existing conditions.
In close collaboration with Leica.
Point clouds for construction
During construction and after the completion of the building, using point clouds is the best way to verify your as-built conditions against the BIM.
Point clouds for renovation
Using point clouds for renovation provides the flexibility you need to capture existing conditions accurately.
BricsCAD BIM supports global open standards to ensure smooth collaboration with everyone on the extended design/build team. Add Bricsys 24/7, our SaaS-based Common Data Enviroment (CDE), as the hub for model sharing and project communications.
IFC 4.0 and BCF
BricsCAD BIM’s underlying database is a direct, 1:1 mapping with the OpenBIM Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) 4.0 schema. We support open standards across the product, like the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) for display and resolution of design issues.
Import directly from Trimble Sketchup
When you import SKP files into BricsCAD Shape, they are automatically stitched into solids. BricsCAD Shape supports the latest versions of SKP files for import.
