BricsCAD, the best alternative to AutoCAD

BricsCAD unifies the intelligence of 3D direct modeling with advanced 2D design on Windows, Linux, or Mac OSX.

Familiar Interface
The BricsCAD interface looks immediately familiar to you. It offers the powerful features you already know inside a clean and consistent user experience. Thanks to its unique, context-sensitive Quad cursor, you are faster and more accurate at creating technical drawings, 3D models, and layouts. To navigate easily through drawings, BricsCAD adds the distinguished ribbon interface and Look From widget.

3D Direct Modeling In Native .DWG Format.
Unlike most other platforms, BricsCAD offers you 3D direct modeling and assemblies in native .dwg format. You can organize components in 3D models hierarchically, and then create renderings more realistically, thanks to the 600 new Redway materials included in BricsCAD.

Third-party Applications
Bricsys’ strong relationship with third-party application developers means you have access to more than 1,500 applications running on BricsCAD. The extensive BricsCAD development platform allows you to port AutoCAD®-based applications without modifying the source code.
