Best CAD/BIM program I have found
Jose l B.
Full featured, great program, great performance, great value, small footprint
Excelent compatibility with our historical base of DWG and with other programs we use like SAP2000 and ETABS
For an equivalent civil3d solution look at Civil Site Design by Civil Survey Solutions running as an App on Bricscad
There are hundreds of third party applications to accomodate just about every task you can imagine, there are people that want a single solution provider but reality is that you can not get the best of all trades in a single company, Bricscad seems to promote the creation of an Ecosystem where many great minds of each trade develop their own solutions with BricsCAD as the core drafting engine and I have found that really novel solutions do come from some of this providers that know better their trade than a company that knows how to make a drawing program, being able to create a great drawing engine is not sinonimous of being able to create a great structural or surveying program, they might be able to make it nicer looking but not necessarily have the expertise to make it a great application for the trade
A typical Autocad Operator is at full capacity withing a couple of hours and BIM proficient withing a week + because he is just improving on what he already knows
Vorteile: Full Featured program -basic level is more than Autocad LT, mid version is more than full Autocad and Platinum is a lot more than Autocad- , Light Weight, only about 500mb installed including CAD and BIM. Blazing Fast (We did a large clash detection run in Autocad and Bricscad and what BricsCAD did in minutes took Autocad days), BIM and CAD in the same solution, no need to convert files from one format to another, no need to train staff for 2 separate solutions for CAD and BIM, just additional commands to the same workflows we devised for CAD over the past 21 years, high mathematical precision
It is hard to find issues to report.
Every time we encountered a shortcomming since 2005 we have placed a support request to BricsCAD, and withing days, weeks and sometimes months, depending on the dificulty, it gets fixed, added or improved so after 13 years using the program I can not thing of anything I do not like
In 2005 I found the program lacking many features, but the development rate is so fast that every day that goes by I find it harder to find something missing that I would need, hundreds of new things get added in every release

One of the best software's i have been using since 2005 till date. Updated and perfect Tool
Kommentare: A lot of skill on designing and user friendly product to use. 100% a buy.
Vorteile: The easy to use it and the simplicity in the commands makes it so user friendly to use. Its at par with any CAD software , in-fact better and faster.
Nachteile: Not much which i dont like. Still if we can make it more colorful in appearance , it would look better.

Very good value for the buck
Kommentare: Very very good
Vorteile: Functionality and interface are very similar to much more expensive Cad programs
Nachteile: Sometimes it freezes on bigger drawings (could be related with my configuration?)

AutoC*D twin brother
Kommentare: During the design, this software was my right hand; With bricsCAD, I worked perfectly with all the problems I encountered. Drawing 3D shape is surprisingly well-functioning.
Vorteile: A well-known interface that is close to everyone, new and old CAD users. All tools work flawlessly
Nachteile: Honestly, and I have no specific objection. I had no unexpected bad situations during my work

BricsCad price ratio and obtained excellent
Vorteile: Sofware can do everything it can to compete for a much lower price, ease of interface
Nachteile: The personal biggest problem me is right-clicking on the mouse because it's not the same as AutoCAD, the problem if you used to work in AutoCad is hard to get used to BricsCAD

Reliable and fast
Kommentare: I prefer BricsCAD as a 2D modelling and basic bluprint drawing tool. I can count on it to work flawlessly and it is compatible with every OS I tried.
Vorteile: It has a really clean interface, ideal for all and any engineering 2D engineering drawings. Even though simple, it has all features similar and more popular softwares use. It is also quite inexpensive and the customer support is fantastic.
Nachteile: Some features in DWG files made with other similar softwares don't always open correctly with BricsCAD.

Excellent AutoCAD alternative
Vorteile: It has 95%+ of the features in AutoCAD, and has a couple that AutoCAD doesn't have!
Nachteile: Depending on the software version, there are still a few bugs. They are not bugs that affect the functionality of the program, but tend to irritate the perfectionist.
