BricsCAD BIM Features
With BricsCAD BIM you can design walls, windows, doors and more from scratch,
or use the extensive design sets to just drag and drop elements. Easy, fast and smart.
Powerful Multipurpose BIM Explorer
The same flexibility BricsCAD offers in 3D modeling, it also offers in attaching information to building elements.
Navigate swiftly through all building data thanks to the customizable data explorer.
Browse predefined compositions or create your own.
BricsCAD BIM includes an extensive library of windows, doors etc.
Draw Walls Easy and Quickly
BricsCAD BIM allows you to easily modify positions and dimensions. To design walls in BIM, draw their footprints in 2D and then pull them up to the desired level. You can also specify their level by entering dimensions interactively.
Windows and Doors
Arrays of windows and doors are included in the BricsCAD BIM design sets. To specify windows and doors, choose or modify a design from the library or create your own designs from scratch.
Explore Your Model from Site to Room Level of Detail
To give you greater flexibility in developing BIM designs, a single drawing file contains a “site,” which can have multiple “buildings,” with each building holding one or more “stories.” The default drawing holds one building with three stories. You specify properties for the new site, building, and story elements.
Easily attach information to building elements
The same flexibility BricsCAD offers in 3D modeling, it also offers in attaching information to building elements. BricsCAD stores building materials and compositions in its project database. All BIM database features are accessible through the dockable BIM panel.
Building materials contain information about specific materials along with layer names and rendering definitions.
You can add a custom number of tags to a building composition. Those tags will serve as a filter when searching through your database for compositions.
Reuse compositions across projects
The library database included with BricsCAD allows you to reuse compositions and building materials across multiple BIM projects. To share information among databases, simply drag building materials and compositions from one database to another.
Use Live Sections to Explore Your Models from the Inside
Get rid of obliterating geometry by activating one or more clip planes to get optimal access to the part of interest. Move clip planes in real-time. Intersections are hatched according to material patterns.
V17Create Detail Sections
Create a detail section using the option named “Detail” of the bimSection command. Define the volume of the section by specifying three corner points. It uses the dynamic UCS as the base of the box; the base plane is also the section plane.
Overlay your rendered model on a photograph using existing vanishing points and angular lines for a most realistic fit.
Sections and Sheet Sets
The redesigned drawing generation feature lets you generate sheet sets in seconds. The dockable Sheet Set manager offers smooth navigation between the project drawings.
