BricsCAD Mechanical – Intelligent Mechanical Design
BricsCAD makes advanced mechanical design accessible. It is intelligent, flexible, affordable and, above all, enables greater design freedom.
BricsCAD’s unique variational 3D modelling approach gives you the freedom to design how you want to, from concept to detail, with whatever level of parametric control you need.
Quickly develop complex components on their own, or directly within an assembly.
Design parts and components
With BricsCAD Mechanical, the design process is simple. Start your design with a 2D sketch, then extrude, revolve or sweep it to create a 3D solid. You can also use built-in 3D primitives to specify the initial shape of your part. Move on to the details using extrusions, fillets, chamfers, Boolean operations, and edit using dynamic direct modeling. You control as much or as little of the form as you like with parameters. You can also import 3D solids and edit them as native components.
Efficient 2D Detailing
BricsCAD offers the best, and most familiar, workflow for turning your mechanical designs into production drawings.
Fast generation of draft quality drawings
Speed up drawing layout using fast, draft-quality views. Then, using multi-core CPUs to create precise views in record time. BricsCAD Mechanical is responsive to your inputs during background drawing generation.
Automatic Drawing Update
Drawing views remain associated with the 3D model. Change a single part, subassembly, or the whole assembly, and all 2D drawing views are automatically updated, allowing fast design iterations and changes.
You can create section views of 3D parts and assemblies. Section planes can be defined by a line drawn on a base view, or you can create more complex sections: half sections, offset sections and aligned section views.
BricsCAD Mechanical allows you to automatically create detail views from any existing view in your drawing layout.
Bill of Materials Table
The BOM panel lets you manage multiple BOM tables in your drawings. You can format each column individually, set up equations, sort tables, and more.
BricsCAD Mechanical creates associative balloons for each component in an assembly, and manages the display of those tags in all automatically generated 2D views.
