Leverage what you already know with full command, script, macro and menu compatibility with the industry-standard CAD program. BricsCAD feels like home!
There’s no need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – they are 100% compatible. Command names, aliases, and system variables are the same in BricsCAD and AutoCAD®. BricsCAD is based on native DWG for the highest compatibility with other CAD users across all industries.
Menu (.CUI, .CUIX) compatible
Support file (.PC3, .LIN, .PAT, .DWT, .SSM) compatible
Based on 2018 DWG technology
You can run LISP routines developed in AutoCAD® and other CAD applications, and develop your own in the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment (BLADE). BricsCAD is based on OpenLISP, with modern memory management and great performance.
You can use the Dynamic Blocks that you created in AutoCAD® directly inside of BricsCAD. Control visibility states and stretch, flip, and rotate just as you would in AutoCAD®.
BricsCAD offers unique tools to help you get more work done faster. Many of them are powered by advanced machine learning technologies to accelerate tasks that can take hours or more via manual methods.
BricsCAD offers intuitive direct modeling functionality for editing solid and surface geometry. Direct modeling operations are interactive and changes to the model display dynamically as you move your mouse. You can use direct modeling operations on all solids, whether you create them in BricsCAD or import them from other modeling applications.
Blockify automatically creates a block definition and replaces all matching sets of entities with block references throughout your entire drawing. You can reduce DWG file size up to 90% by using Blockify to find repetitive geometry and convert it into block references.
BricsCAD’s unique Quad is a “head-up” command palette that predicts your command usage and offers one-click access to the command you’ll most likely need next. It’s powered by an A.I. agent that makes those command predictions, based on how you use BricsCAD.
CopyGuided automatically aligns copied entities to relevant geometry using automatically generated guide curves. You can explicitly select entities to use as guide curves or let BricsCAD determine them based on the drawing elements in your selection.

BricsCAD supports multi-threaded, multi-processor operations to speed product performance for file loads, drawing generation and rendering. In fact, BricsCAD BIM and BricsCAD Mechanical users can leverage multi-core processors to speed drawing sheet generation and updates in the background, while you continue to work on your BIM or assembly model.
In each new version of BricsCAD, we strive to improve display performance. Enjoy smooth zoom and pan operations in drawings containing hundreds of thousands of entities. BricsCAD uses the Redway3D graphics system to deliver great display performance for 3D graphics.
We use a multi-resolution, persistent image cache to display PDF underlays, enabling super-fast zoom and pan operations. And BricsCAD’s raster engine delivers great pan and zoom performance, even with enormous 64-bit BigTIFF files.
The Bricsys 24/7 connection panel lives inside of BricsCAD, and gives you direct access to our cloud-based file storage and collaboration network.
