Looking to play with some of the BricsCAD Platinums new mechanical modelling features introduced with V13? If you take a look in your installation folder you will find a couple of models have been provided as samples. You should find them located under:
A rather subtle feature introduced with BricsCAD V13 is the ability to click and drag on objects to move and copy them. Its subtle in that it provides no prompting, or graphicical indication when you use it. In fact move has been available since V11, with the copy feature added with V13.
A new feature introduced with BricsCAD V13 is Dynamic UCS. This subtle feature will prove to be a major time saver for those working in 3D, as demonstrated in the video below. This video also shows Automatic Command Completion in action, which is another new feature with V13.
Demonstration of Inverse Kinematics in action with BricsCAD V13 Platinum at the 2012 Bricsys conference in Amsterdam on October 3rd. Presentation was made by Dmitry Ushakov, Chief Executive Officer, Bricsys Technologies Russia. With BricsCAD V13 Platinum is moving further to identify itself as the MCAD option of the three different types of BricsCAD.
ScaleText will allow you to quickly re-size selected TEXT and MTEXT about is insertion point by applying a scale factor.
I often have users ask if a command exists in Bricscad. Quite often it does, but it is not listed anywhere on the standard menus. Of course the stalwarts out there will simply type the command in, but if you would rather point and click, then the Tool Palette offers a quick and easy way to place the commands you want at your finger tips. The following video demonstrates how you can add a command to the Tool Palette.
Some useful features in Bricscad can be found hidden away. One of those is the ability to align blocks on insertion from the Drawing Explorer. The following video shows how to access this feature, and demonstrate what it does.
Well the Unofficial Bricscad Wishlist poll has closed and the results are in. The top three wishes are listed below. Head over to the Bricscad forum for further results and discussion.
Changing sheet sizes, title blocks and notes on a drawing can be a real pain. However if you make use of templates and layouts you can greatly reduce the effort that is involved.
