BricsCAD Sheet Metal Comparison

esadmin BricsCAD

If you create, modify and manufacture sheet metal components and assemblies, BricsCAD Sheet Metal will make your work-day better. Whether you’re creating new parts, or updating existing designs, Sheet Metal for BricsCAD gives you maximum flexibility when editing your models. We have combined the freedom of direct modeling with the power of feature-based design. In doing this, we’ve removed the conceptual limits that you would encounter with history-based CAD modelers.

Automate the Placement of 3D Constraints

Now in its sixth release, Sheet Metal for BricsCAD adds new design intelligence by automatically placing 3D constraints within your model as you work. The result? You’ll have better dimensional control over your designs with the automated creation of these constraints.

New Modeling Options Make Your Life Easier

When you use junction features in your designs, Sheet Metal for BricsCAD will allow you to split thickness faces into regions. As a result, your ability to work with junction features is enhanced. Create a new bend and you’ll be able to adjust the bend radius directly. Use the Relief creation tool and the system will automatically make the bend relief for you. When you work with certain predefined form features, you’ll have the option to selectively explode them into a series of flanges and bends.

Better Logic, Feature Handling and OSM Export

We’re always improving Bricsys products. In Sheet Metal for BricsCAD recognition of improper bend features is now more accurate, and new program logic improves the handling of modeling operations with junction features.

When you choose to export your designs via OSM, V17.2 now supports connections between bends and lofted bends. Also, the treatment of hard edges is now more robust when you export your geometry as an OSM file.
