BIM Modeling Made Simple with BricsCAD BIM

September 4 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

When it comes to generating 3D BIM models, you don’t need an entirely separate piece of software that costs thousands of dollars per year. With BricsCAD BIM, you can handle all of your 2D & 3D drafting needs within the same file. Not just that, but BricsCAD BIM uses direct modeling tools, which are far more intuitive and flexible than the parametric systems used by those expensive modeling systems. Whether you’re completely new to BIM, an experienced CAD user looking to extend your skills, or maybe you’re just looking for a more efficient, cost-effective way to handle your 3D modeling, this is the class for you.

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.

Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 7 consecutive days. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.​
