Bricsys have posted a video demonstration of BricsCAD V13 Platinums Assembly Modeling capabilities. The example shows how to attach parts or sub assemblies (all of which are dwg files), editing sub assemblies, adding a bill of materials, and making use of the x-solids hardware library.
Bricsys have posted a video demonstration of the new mechanical features included with BricsCAD Platinum. The model used is the same as presented at the recent conference in October.
Having problems installing BricsCAD on your machine, or getting strange un-repeatable type errors?Â Rakesh Rao recently posted this suggestion to try Installing BricsCAD as Administrator. Like my previous post on entering your BricsCAD License, this isn't necessarily an issue with BricsCAD, but something that can occur with any application you are installing on a Windows 7 / Vista machine.
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.
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.
