I hope that Bricscad will come a littler closer to SketchUp and Tekla, and nobody would miss Autocad dynamic blocks at all. Here some features that I really miss in BricsCAD parametric blocks:

Forum Spam is really detracting from use. I notice in some cases spammers are replying to legitimate posts, replacing included url links with their own. I don't think it is nice to have the reputation of legitimate posters damaged in this way.
I understand after upgraded, future maintenance fee will be increased, but how about my current maintenance? For instance, my current all-in is 2019-11-19, I will get v20 Mechanical, but if I upgrade my Mechanical to Ultima…
With customisation it is best to avoid the "hardwiring" paths into code. Instead make use of the SRCHPATH to tell BricsCAD where to look for files.

Yes, I think it could be due to Windows display scaling. I've experienced similar problems with connecting a 4K laptop to external display. I found if I dropped the resolution of the laptop to match the external display, then BricsCAD worked without…
I believe OP is talking about COPYCLIP / PASTECLIP from AutoCAD -> BricsCAD. These are two independent applications, BricsCAD can't (or doesn't) access the clipboard format used by AutoCAD, so pastes the objects as an OLE. Same will occur if you …
To resolve you can make a copy of BricsCAD's "Print as PDF.pc3" and rename the copy to "DWG to PDF.pc3". Print as PDF is the BricsCAD equivalent PDF printer.
To find the folder location for these files go into SETTINGS and search for PLOTCFGPATH.

Should add that the only visual style that uses ctb is 2D Wireframe - because it's not really a Style, but is the 'native' representation of the vector geometry. All the other Styles are rendered derivatives of the geometry, …
This is because Sketchy is a rendered visual style. These type of visual styles don't use ctb values and when printed, print out as an image rather than vector. You can adjust the how a rendered style displays by adjusting it's VISUALSTYLE.
Perhaps try creating SECTIONPLANE then use SECTIONPLANETOBLOCK. There is an option with section planes to output to an external file rather than to block. This mimics the automated process provided with BIMSECTIONs.

I just realized that the "SAVE" command in BricsCAD does not do the same thing as the "SAVE" command in AutoCAD.
"SAVE" in BricsCAD is the same as "SaveAs".
In AutoCAD, "SAVE" writes to the chosen drawing name, but doe…
It sounds like you haven't used BASEFILE to set a default template. Your LISP relies on BricsCAD starting using a default template, which it then closes.
I would also check that you have set STARTUP = 0. If it's set to = 1 you will prompted with a …

The V18 Help shows that a Pro or Platinum license is required for the _Extrude command. The V19 Help for the same command tells you it is available for all licenses. Obviously something has gone wrong here.
That works nicely.
However, I notice the Title Block text & notes etc. in Paper Space were a lighter line-weight than the Model Space geometry.
Tried it on another dwg, & the PDF was created upside down.

2 small hints:
You can use findfile to check if the PDF-file already exists.
If the file exists I would try erasing it before calling the _Plot command. If this is unsuccessful then the f…
Thank you, I have learned LISP on the fly, only dangerous @ it; not expert level, but would like to learn more.
Will give your example a try. It has been a wonderment why in AutoCAD when printing a PDF it always cre…
