BricsCAD: Beyond the Basics

July 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until July 27, 2023


If you’ve made the move to BricsCAD, you already know how easy it is to pick up the basics and be productive on a daily basis. Like any software system though, there are setups, customizations, and configurations you want to get in place to make your work process easier and more consistent. Wrapping your brain around the configuration options and some of the advanced tools and processes in BricsCAD isn’t always easy. This class is designed to teach you how to do just that. ZenTek Consultants, an Elite BricsCAD partner, will show you how to build templates, set default environments, and work with/set up advanced drafting tools and features to automate your workload in the BricsCAD environment. Anyone working as a CAD Manager, or supervising a BricsCAD environment, needs to take this class!

​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 detailed BricsCAD functions, and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: Instructor will present using BricsCAD V23. 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 days. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.​
