I work in the field of residential design, the VR penetration is basically none in my area. In my opinion VR is overhyped right now, it will have future, but not wide scale adoption. Even though it might sound stupid, I think putting on VR goggle…
now I recall one Bricsys employee recommended to turn multi-threading on during troubleshooting. You do this by setting MTFLAGS=7 and WHIPTHREAD=3. I thought multi-threading is turned on by default on Windows (when I was troubles…Hi Benjamin,
I have similar issues with one of my architectural projects. The project itself is not that big (file is roughly 14MB) but it has been created in DraftSight and I have been working with this file for a long time, importing/att…Hi Scott,
I think several people tried to get idea of how to use BricsCAD BIM in production (how to create 2D documentation), but think that currently the BIM module is in kind of "Alpha" stage, so few people are using it in production. Mo…Hi,
I had bad experience with 3D transport through dxf format (your mileage may vary of course). I use Meshlab (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MeshLab) to convert files to …Hi Scott,
apparently there's new "transparency" entity/layer property in new V16 release. Setting the "OBSOLETE" sign to be more transparent than 0% should solve your issue. I didn't test it though, I am still on V15.
We are slipping off the topic but I'd like to mention this: I've been using DraftSight (free) for the last 6 years, I moved to BricsCAD year ago. DraftSight worked re…Hi,
don't agree with the statement, that every year something exciting to AutoCAD LT. I'd say BricsCAD classic and LT are moving at roughly the same pace.
I haven't tried V16 yet (I am not sure if I'll be upgrading) but from the list …@Erik:
thanks for giving us heads up about the BIM module and also sincerely explaining Bricsys' point of view.
thanks for sharing your thoughts about BIM. I am currently trying to switch my workflow to use 3D (interior architecture), so this is very useful to me. I am torn between trying to move to Revit or waiting for BricsCAD BIM to matur…Hi,
some people are too harsh on Bricsys. We can blame them for not communicating this change in advance, but calling them greedy is too much. This split is just a standard business procedure. The miscommunication is shame, because Bricsys…Hi Tijs,
personally I think it's enough to support last 2 LTS ubuntu versions, which would mean 14.04 and 16.04 at the release of BricsCAD V16. But I think it mostly depends on what users of BricsCAD on linux use. I think nobody running 12…[quote]Windows 7 is still readily available. If I was building a new computer I would have Windows 7 installed. There are s…Hi Scott,
I've previously been using linux, so I cannot compare to older versions of windows, but my experience is this:
I have windows 10 isntalled on my laptop and workstation since it was released, I use it on everyday basis. Brics…Hi,
I'd like to ask additional question: is there a way to add extra vertecies to already created viewport? Say I have square viewport (with four vertecies) and want to change it's size to L shaped - I need two more vertecies. Is there a w…Hi,
there's no such command for creating 2D representation of walls, doors and windows in Bricscad. 3D walls are created by POLYSOLID command, doors and windows are inserted with BIMINSERT command. I think at current state BricsCAD 15 cann…Hi,
BricsCAD doesn't include 3D library, just few windows/doors as BIM objects. You can either create your own or download dwg's from internet. BricsCAD can also import Sketchup models (google warehouse), I haven't tested it yet to tell if…Hi,
I upgraded one machine form 8.1 to 10 without any problems. BricsCAD works fine.
As others have posted, I recommend not do "Express installation", but use custom one and opt out of most of the tracking and advertising stuff Micros…Hi,
I see lots of people are looking for workflow improvement - there's no set way of using 3D right now. It's good to hear experience of others. I've been researching options and right now this is my point of view:
BricsCAD - 3D mode…Hi Timothy,
you can export from BricsCAD as Colllada file (.dae) - this is part of the satndard install. This can be imported to Blender. In my testing (small room with simple furniture) it worked quite well.
Hope this helps,
