Dark UI, Expandable Panels, Start Tab

You asked for it – and we delivered. In BricsCAD® V20, you can toggle between the classic light user interface and the new Dark UI with a click. New expandable panels, consistent and familiar workspaces, and BricsCAD’s new Start tab will speed your design tasks.

We met with CAD users across the globe to learn what was most important to you in a CAD application. From a modern interface to intelligent productivity tools, BricsCAD® V20 is designed to help you work faster and smarter, not harder!” – Heidi Hewett, BricsCAD® Product Owner

Productivity Tools

New and improved productivity tools, such as Copy Guided and Blockify, take advantage of the leading developments in AI and machine learning to automate repetitive, multi-step tasks like copying geometry and converting entities into blocks.

New Civil Modeling Tools

Leveraging our geometry expertise, BricsCAD® V20 offers extended modeling workflows for creating and editing TIN surfaces, grading, and alignments. Now, you can create, visualize, and analyze Civil designs in real-time with excellent performance and CAD accuracy. Best of all? No object enablers are required to view and analyze Civil geometry. And this new functionality is backed by a rich API that will allow Bricsys Collective partners to build powerful analytics tools for Civil Engineering design.

The new AI functions and Civil features are redefining what is possible in DWG -based CAD, at a price point that will make our customers smile. We’re continuing to offer a real choice to our customers with our licensing model – Subscription or perpetual, it’s your choice.” – Robert Green, Director of Implementation at Bricsys.

Bricsys 24/7® Panel

We’re bringing the power of Bricsys 24/7® collaboration to the BricsCAD® V20 product family. Deeply integrated into BricsCAD® V20, Bricsys 24/7 combines cloud storage with the desktop capabilities of CAD, to streamline and improve collaboration between design team members. The user interface of the web application was not only re-designed but also reengineered from the ground up using the latest technologies, making the entire product much faster and smoother to work with. In V20, we introduce a native 24/7 Application for iOS and Android devices. With a direct link to the design team wherever you go, you can speed through site inspections and follow-ups in record time. And best of all, the new Bricsys 24/7® Free features and cloud storage are introduced to all BricsCAD® Maintenance customers at no extra cost.

Bricsys 24/7® is our SaaS-based Common Data Environment (CDE). It is used to manage documents, routings, and communications for large-scale building and construction products daily. In use for over a decade, with hundreds of thousands of users, Bricsys 24/7 is the CDE beyond compare.

I feel like we’ve made a major leap in the redesign of 24/7. We’ve kept things simple and intuitive while ensuring that our power users have the flexibility they need. We’ve been promising good things to come, and I’m happy to announce that we have a true collaboration solution to offer our customers.” – Frederik Van Hoyweghen, Bricsys 24/7® Product Owner.
