3D Modeling has never been easier or more robust than with BricsCAD Pro. This software takes all the 2D CAD features found in BricsCAD Lite, while adding extensive 3D modeling features. Engineering, architectural, and construction specialists will all benefit from an easy-to-use interface combined with AI and automation-driven features that simplify repetitive tasks.
BricsCAD Pro is particularly helpful for civil engineering, thanks to its suite of tools for tasks such as grading and alignments. Create and edit TIN surfaces with ease, while utilizing BricsCAD 24/7 to easily share files, collaborate, and track the changes made. Plus, if a feature you need isn't available natively, BricsCAD Pro offers over 400 third-party applications and plug-ins to enhance its capabilities.

Civil and Survey
BricsCAD features unique AI-powered, intelligent tools to help you do more, faster. These tools help you to automate manual tasks, optimize drawings, and assist user input, significantly reducing effort and increasing your design productivity.
Powerful Variational 3D Modeling
BricsCAD's unique approach to 3D design combines the best of unconstrained direct modeling and parametric design worlds. You’re free to express your creativity at the early design stage through dynamic direct modelling, interactively manipulating solid and surface geometry as you move your mouse. As the design evolves, you can add more dimensional control, or even fully parameterise the design, automatically, and all without the complexity imposed by a history-based approach.
Parametric Blocks: a dynamic approach to creating 2D block
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.
This unique tool automatically converts repetitive sets of 2D or 3D drawing geometry to block definitions, instantly ensuring cleaner, higher-performing and better organised drawings.
Optimize drawing quality
OPTIMIZE corrects your drawing issues by automatically finding and healing inconsistancies such as gaps and misalignments which may otherwise be difficult to see, improving drawing accuracy and giving you a cleaner, more efficient result.
Automatically 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.
Autoconstrain 2D or 3D drawing elements
When creating parametric 2D or 3D drawing elements, BricsCAD enables you to intelligently and automatically apply parameters and constraints with just one click, applying geometric control quickly and easily for fast design changes and reuse.
The Quad: drawing, editing, and information near the cursor
BricsCAD’s unique Quad is a “heads-up” command palette that predicts your command usage and offers one-click access to the command you’ll most likely need next.
Point Cloud Visualization
BricsCAD uses 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.
BricsCAD Pro is fully based on the industry standard dwg format, with full command, script, macro and menu compatibility. BricsCAD feels like home!
BricsCAD Pro is highly compatible with AutoCAD® 2022
There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – all 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.
- Command compatible
- Menu (.CUI, .CUIX) compatible
- Macro/script compatible
- Support file (.PC3, .LIN, .PAT, .DWT, .SSM) compatible
- Based on 2018 DWG technology
You can run LISP routines developed in AutoCAD® and other CAD applications, or develop your own in the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment (BLADE). BricsCAD is based on OpenLISP, with modern memory management and great performance.
Why use LISP?
LISP routines are the easiest way to automate processes and workflows for bulk layer manipulations, changing entity properties, automate drawing and XREF relationships, standardize plotting and publishing workflows, etc.
Best of all this code is platform independent. You can just run them as usual.
Did You Know?
You can use the Dynamic Blocks that you created in AutoCAD® directly inside of BricsCAD. Control visibility states and stretch, flip, and rotate just as you would in AutoCAD®.
CAD should feel smooth and seamless, no matter how many millions of lines are in the file.
High performance graphics engine
Enjoy smooth zoom and pan operations in drawings containing hundreds of thousands of entities. BricsCAD uses the Redway3D graphics system to deliver great display performance for 3D graphics.
PDF and Big TIFF underlays
BricsCAD uses a multi-resolution, persistent image cache to display PDF underlays, enabling super-fast zoom and pan operations. And BricsCAD’s raster engine delivers great pan and zoom performance, even with enormous 64-bit Big TIFF files.
Did You Know?
BricsCAD supports multi-threaded, multi-processor operations to speed product performance for file loads, drawing generation, and rendering. In fact, BricsCAD BIM and BricsCAD Mechanical users can leverage multi-core processors to speed drawing sheet generation and updates in the background, while you continue to work on your BIM or assembly model.
