What is BricsCAD?
BricsCAD is an all-in-one computer-aided design (CAD) software that combines 3D modeling and 2D CAD for .dwg. It's a less popular platform that provides all .dwg 2D CAD features while bringing the convenience of the powerful 3D modeling and time-saving tools. The program is expertly crafted with engineers in mind to support efficient execution of all projects.
The application provides intuitive modeling and drawing solutions and is available in 3 editions namely; Classic, Pro, and platinum. It's also open to 3rd party developers making it an ideal solution for users looking to scale past the AutoCAD horizon. Some of its key features include an intelligent quad cursor, settings manager, drawing explorer, dockable panel, layers & content browser, web map services, dynamic arrays, annotative scales, dynamic dimensions, and 3D modeling.
What is Civil Site Design?
Civil Site Design is a civil engineering solution that provides comprehensive road and subdivision design and simulation functionality, directly inside your CAD environment.
From single roads with intersections and cul-de-sacs to large, complex subdivision and highway network projects, Civil Site Design provides you all the tools for surface/contour modelling, alignment design, and dynamic site grading. Unlike other civil solutions, channel, sewer, pipe, conduit, and inner-duct networks can be linked directly to a road alignment (e.g. centerline or edge of pavement). When the placement changes vertically or horizontally, your entire design updates automatically. Output section and profile sheets, stakeout points, volume reports and more, directly into your drawing environment, customized to suit local drafting standards. Civil Site Design can also be used for other development projects such as wetlands and lot grading.
Civil Site Design runs on BricsCAD, AutoCAD, and AutoCAD Civil 3D.
