Bricsys has released 17.2 version of BricsCAD. This release boosts display performance, adds new usability tools and comes with a powerful set of workflow-enhancing features – and best of all.
BricsCAD by Bricsys is the World's number one alternative to AutoCAD. BricsCAD is the powerful CAD software platform unifying the familiar features set of native dwg with advanced 2D tools and intelligent 3D direct modeling. BricsCAD provides Application Developers with the broad suite of APIs required to deliver advanced solutions to cost conscious customers in the AEC, GIS and mechanical CAD markets.
- A Display Performance Boost
The display performance of BricsCAD V17.2 is spectacular. We've improved REGEN speed for users who use raster images within their 3D models. Overall, entity selection is enhanced with 5x faster display highlight rendering.
You can ZOOM faster, especially when you're working in perspective views. Also, you'll notice that zooming via your mouse-wheel is smoother than ever. We've also greatly improved the overall selection and display performance of BricsCAD in drawings containing entities at extreme coordinates.
BricsCAD 17.2 lets you control the threshold for layer filter removal on drawing load. This speeds the performance of the Layer Explorer and other dialogs that display layer information. If you work with raster images, V17.2 now supports image settings like fade, contrast and brightness.
- Faster Command Access through Usability & Interface Improvements
The Quad is BricsCAD’s unique, customizable heads-up interface. In V17.2, we’ve reworked the Quad to make it easier to configure the commands that you want to display. You can easily add commands to a Quad tab by drag-and-drop, or via a right-click context menu. Creating your own tabs and buttons is easy.
Also, V17.2 gives you the option to create an optimized Quad for each Workspace that you use. Less time choosing commands means faster and more accurate drawing creation, and the Quad is the best way to put these commands at your cursor, when you want them. BricsCAD’s Tool Palettes give you effortless drag-and-drop access to your most-used commands, hatch patterns and render materials.
In 17.2, you can change the properties of multiple Tool Palette items with one click. Also, you can now use macros in the command strings of your Tools.
- New Features to Help You Get Work Done Faster and More Accurately
The Tips widget displays additional information during command execution, and in V17.2 you can decide if and when the widget appears through the new Tips Configuration dialog box. You can toggle through layout tabs quickly by pressing the Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn keys, letting you quickly flip through multiple layouts.
We've reworked Publish to PDF to ensure a smoother publishing process. The Print to PDF driver is improved with the ability to manage custom paper sizes. In V17.2 you can use the Publish dialog's stored registry settings to control your PDF output, and have the ability to manage these settings separately from those of the ExportPDF command.
