BricsCAD




Easily import and export 3D CAD data

Thanks to our optional Communicator module, BricsCAD Pro and Platinum users can import and export 3D CAD data with all the major MCAD programs.

Supported formats include neutral ones, such as STEP and IGES; native formats, such as CATIA, Inventor, and SolidWorks; and kernel formats, such as Parasolid. All editions of BricsCAD export drawings and models in ACIS, DWG, 2D PDF, and a variety of raster formats.

BricsCAD Communicator is an optional module to the BricsCAD Pro and Platinum editions that provides support for high quality 3D data exchange between major CAD formats. It facilitates the import and export of 3D CAD data including neutral (e.g. STEP and IGES), native MCAD (e.g. CATIA, Inventor, SolidWorks) and kernel specific formats.
