BricsCAD brings new levels of performance and innovation to industry-standard DWG files.


Work and design faster


Familiar workflow - if you know AutoCAD®, you already know how to use BricsCAD


Extremely flexible licensing options - own it outright or rent annually

Commands that you already know


No need to change your printers, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts to move to BricsCAD – they are 100% compatible.

Command names, aliases, and system variables are the same in BricsCAD and AutoCAD®. BricsCAD is based on native DWG for the highest compatibility with other CAD users across all industries.

  • Command compatible

  • Menu (.CUI, .CUIX) compatible

  • Macro/script compatible

  • Support file (.PC3, .LIN, .PAT, .DWT, .SSM) compatible

  • Based on 2018 DWG technology

LISP Routine Sample

Full LISP Support


LISP routines allow you to automate processes and workflows for bulk layer manipulations, changing entity properties, automate drawing and XREF relationships.  

Use LISPs developed in AutoCAD and other CAD applications, and/or develop your own in the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment (BLADE).

BricsCAD is based on OpenLISP, with modern memory management and great performance.

Faster than AutoCAD®


In each new version of BricsCAD, we strive to improve display performance. Enjoy smooth zoom and pan operations in drawings containing hundreds of thousands of entities.


What's new in BricsCAD V21

Heal 2D Drawings with Optimize - Search your 2D drawings for errors and inconsistencies and automatically fix them with the OPTIMIZE tool. You can tweak your tolerance values “live” to define the types of errors that you want to correct, and you’ll see the impact in real-time.

Auto-map Layer structures across drawings - Save time setting up the same layer structure over and over again. Automatically map layers of your current drawing to the layer names and properties from another specified drawing with the LAYTRANS command.

Move entities intelligently with Moveguided - Similar to BricsCAD’s CopyGuided functionality, MoveGuided automatically detects guide curves in an entity selection set and helps you move your selection to identical locations in your drawing. MoveGuided also heals underlying geometry automatically.
