I am reviewing Bricscad as a supplement to my three seats of Chief Architect. The reason is, Chief is great at residential but is horrible at commercial. I used Vectoworks back in 2012 and liked two huge aspects of the program. It had a 2d ceiling grid layout tool. From what I've read, Brics doesn't have one but someone posted an Autolisp routine that does the job almost identically to Vectorworks. My only remaining question is the notes management in Brics.
Vectorkworks had an amazing keynote system and notes management database. Archicad does not have a keynote feature but you can use a third party addon from Cadimage. Personally, I don't think a $6000 program should require an addon for something so simple.
So.......does Brics have a note management system and does it have keynotes ability? I did ready somewhere that you could do keynotes in paperspace and annotations. That seems a little limiting, like using "dumb" keynotes, especially for a smart BIM program.
I think Vectorworks also has a an MEP ductwork tool that is similar to the new one in Brics BIM which is a plus.
So does anyone have advise for someone deciding whether to buy back into Vectorworks or start off fresh with Brics BIM?
