The Unofficial Bricscad Wishlist

With the next release of Bricscad only a few months away, now is a good time some input from you the user, or potential user, as to the must have features you want to see included. So pop the top off a Duvel, and get stuck into the Unofficial Bricscad Wishlist. And first wish is granted, it doesn't require Facebook!

I've prepared the following for you to vote on, plus the opportunity to add some of your own must haves:

1. Multileaders  -  Provide the ability to create, and edit Multileader objects, not just look at them!
2. Copy and Paste from Excel as a TABLE.
3. MLINE and MLEDIT - This should be built in, not a freeware add-on!
4. BATTMAN  - This should be built in, not a freeware add-on!
5. PDF Printer - Available via PRINT & PUBLISH
6. Annotative Object Support - Text, Blocks, Hatch, Leaders......
7. eTRANSMIT - Package multiple drawings, and Include XREF Binding options
8. Sheet Set Manager - I need to manage my sheets
9. EXPORTLAYOUT - export a layout to model space
10. Model Documentation Viewport Generation
11. Viewports - Hidden line removal when printing
12. Surface modelling - Slice a solid with Surface etc..
13. IMPORT - add support for PDF, EPS, IFC/ifcXML, ESRI SHP, KML, STL
14. EXPORT - add support for STL, KML, ESRI SHP
15. I Want my Bricscad to run on
16. And I need my Bricscad to support this many bits

So visit Unofficial Bricscad Wishlist and make your voice heard! The wishlist will be open for a month, and results will be posted back here.

  • Sweep

    better xref performance
  • close attribute edit dialog
    ddedit & all popup dialogs
    by pressing ctrl+Enter

    Nice stuff. It is going to take time however. Bricscad has made big strides in a relatively short period. Good on them ! But so much to do.
    It would be nice to have full 64bit Bricscad. Linux has had this capability for many years.
  •  Sorry i'm don't understand: eTRANSMIT is already in Bricscad since V10
  • Alexey,

    Bricscad doesn't include all the features of Acad with eTransmit. Some of the missing features are:
    • The ability to select and package multiple drawings into one eTransmit package. Currently in Bricscad you would need to open each drawing independently, then combine yourself.
    • Option to bind Xrefs. Some clients can't or won't deal with xrefs
    • Option to set default plotter to none.
    • Option to Purge Drawings.

  • as i expected
    >Wish No 1 - PDF Printer - Available via PRINT & PUBLISH
    the unintended function
    We allready have  pdf printers for all platforms... why developers have to spend time on what is already here???
    that's why this poll has no sense. Because the vast majority are ignoramuses (sorry) who are unable to set up a virtual pdf printer.
    And you expected got adequate results? No way...
    >Wish No 2 - IMPORT - add support for PDF, EPS, IFC/ifcXML, ESRI SHP, KML, STL
    Are you kidding? That is most important wish No2... Come on people!
    >Wish No 6 - MLINE and MLEDIT - This should be built in, not a freeware add-on! 
    >Wish No 8 -  BATTMAN  - This should be built in, not a freeware add-on! 
    You allready have it, if it reallly importatance. What is the difference? Perc
    Personally, I believe that the function of which is not fundamentally  have.  Should have higher priority than the features and functionality that can be work around.

    >Wish No 7 - Sheet Set Manager - I need to manage my sheets 
    Most appropriate request at 7th place.
    >Wish No 9 - Provide the ability to create, and edit Multileader objects, not just look at them!
    Yes I need it (not only me). & we have only  No 9. (fanfare - tada)
    and so on...
    I hope you understand my point... :(

    I am too late to post, but I would like the 'cal command to work as it does in autocad within other commands.
    for example: within offset, type 'cal and then 2.4375 / 2 to get a calculated offset distance.
    Currently cal works to take you to a native linux calculator, not the same thing as an inline command line calculation.

  • Very good point Steve - my calculator is a constant companion on my desk, much better than a separate window on screen, but the built-in solution would be great.
  • @ Steve,

    This isn't a CAL replacement as such, but you can use LISP to carry out calculations from the command prompt, including from inside a current command.

    e.g: for 'CAL 2.4375 / 2,  in LISP is  ( / 2.4375  2)

    For unit conversion use cvunit e.g.:  (cvunit 1.0 "inch" "cm") will return 2.54

    you may need to change your _TEXTEVAL setting to get this working properly
