You could also take a look at DATAEXTRACTION to extract info out to a spreadsheet, manipulate it how you want, then paste back in as a TABLE.

In LISP you can use layoutlist to return a list of the current layouts.
("Layout1" "Layout2" "Layout3")
However, this doesn't necessarily return in the order they have been positioned. I believe Roy has spoken to this previously on th…
With DUCS, you can create a dummy solid to use for alignment, create your object, then delete the dummy solid.
You could also MANIPULATE the object into position after creation.

Does BricsCAD BIM support Relational Modeling of Building Components? In other words, is there a hierarchical link between things like a Wall and Doors and Windows placed in the Wall? What happens with a Wall containing Door…
Thanks for the info.
Anytime I start my BricsCAD Pro I get the BIM components but not the mechanical. I am looking for the nuts, bolts and steel shape library and I cannot find it.
I had this issue too. The com…
Foxit Phantom PDF has a plugin to convert a .dwg to .pdf
An alternative approach with V19 would be to generate an FBX file, then upload to a site like Sketchfab for viewing.

When it comes to the BIM part, the best model exchange option is to use IFC.
I hear this all the time, but doesn't work with Revit clients. They simply do not get the information they n…
Indeed, sounds like a bug. You would need to raise a support request to get it investigated. A workaround could be done by customising your font mapping file "default.fmp". This file allows you to force BricsCAD to swap one font for another.
Michael this quite an old thread, V19 is using Redway3D V4.3. I'm pretty sure that Bricsys ares using a lot more than 10%, it is indeed wonderful stuff. You can check the version using the REDSDKINFO command. V19 includes the FBXEXPORT command for e…

Okay, I was able to boot to the old drive long enough to make a new profile based on my settings where I last left them and exported the "profile1.arg" file.
On the new setup, I started over by uninstalling Brics, deletin…
There is an alternative approach for users with BricsCAD Platinum and above. Instead of trying to change the visibility of entities within a block, you can use BMMECH along with BMFORM to create a component with sub-components. Then BMINSERT into th…

However! Just discovered that the wonderful facility in Structure panel, to HIDE or SHOW objects individually, does work within REFEDIT!
So, problem solved, for me.

Perhaps raise a support request? The mechanical browser won't show 2D geometric constraints, but will show 2D dimensional constraints. These are displayed as Parameters.
The animate option is a new feature with V19. It's a useful way to …

So it appears that BricsCAD will not be forced into True Color background only Index colors.
Yes, looks like it's been like that for a while. I wrote this LISP to toggle between Black and White quite a while ago an…
I tried your suggestion, but on V18 in Platinum mode, I don't have a 'Blockify' command.
In that case you will need to manually create a block of each repeating entity, copy it to where it is needed, an…

Thanks for your reply. Opened your assembly and moved the box. The insert did NOT move with the box. I opened the mechanical browser and noticed two coincident constraints marked in RED, whose objects are block / compone…
Thank you for the additional command to try.
I've attached a jpg of the drawing I want to bring over to BricsCAD, one of many. It's minus the exterior walls, interior walls and roof for a bakery / re…
You can try DMSIMPLIFY following a conversion to 3D Solid.
If your existing app is able to output 2D data in dxf form, then it may prove to be simpler, faster, and more accurate to use this info to re-create the 3D solid in BricsCAD. You'll also se…
Try DMSTITCH. You may need to first convert your triangles to REGIONs, depending on what type of entity that they are. At a guess, I would assume 3DFACES.

I work a lot with rectangular sheet metal housings that have to nest together. In most cases, there is an airgap or gasket between the two parts. It's very easy to use a concentric constraint to place a cylinder inside an…
I would first select the image and check that you haven't turned the display off in the property bar. If this isn't the issue, then I would suspect the image disk cache. When you load images in BricsCAD, the images are cached to a local folder. The …
"Invalid Index" is most commonly caused by corrupt entities in the dwg database. Try running AUDIT/RECOVER to resolve.
If you are still getting issues after this, then you can use the handle value reported by these commands to track down the offend…
Hi Torsten, that will be great, I really look forward to it, on a side note have you considered trying to redo the talk you did in London with a good video, it really was impressive?
Agree. Maybe come down and do it in Austra…
I can't find a way in Bricscad create a BMP plotter (you can in Acad which allows you to select output in pixel sizes).
PDF Creator allows you to create system printers to print out in a variety of image formats.
You can achieve what you want by creating multiple layouts with multiple viewports ( see MVIEW). Paperspace viewports can have independent viewpoints, scale, and layer control. This allows you to orientate to the view that you want, then freeze/thaw…
Looks like a bug. You will need to raise an SR to get it fixed. It works as expected in AutoCAD
(type (vl-bb-set 'a-real 5.0))
(type (vl-bb-ref 'a-real))
As a workaround to force a real to be returned you could include a float call
