BricsCAD Lite is the best choice for 2D drafting

From simple schematics to office floorplans to complex dimensioned production drawings, BricsCAD Lite is a powerful tool every professional and casual designer/drafter will appreciate. Fully equipped with a comprehensive feature set, BricsCAD Lite is intuitive and easy to use.

If you know AutoCAD®, you already know BricsCAD

BricsCAD Lite offers all the functionality of AutoCAD LT, and more. The overall user experience is amazingly familiar. BricsCAD Lite lets you customize your drafting workflows with the full power of LISP. The majority of your existing LISP routines will just load and run 5 to 100x faster. And migration is easy too – your menus and other customizations move right over into BricsCAD!

“Adapting to BricsCAD was really easy. Within one week, we had made a full migration to BricsCAD: as if we had never changed our CAD platform at all.”

Dario Pibiri, Mechanical Engineer
  • All the features you’ll ever need for precision 2D drafting

  • Intuitive and easy to use

  • Costs less than AutoCAD LT

  • If you know AutoCAD, you know BricsCAD

  • Reads and writes DWGs

  • Faster than AutoCAD

  • Flexible Licensing

The lower cost, professional CAD software alternative to AutoCAD LT

Cost-effective and no forced subscriptions.

Unlike other CAD software, BricsCAD offers the most flexible CAD licensing model. Choose between perpetual use or rental (subscription) licenses – whatever makes sense for you.

Best of all? A BricsCAD perpetual use license is about half the price of a yearly subscription of AutoCAD.


A few important and customer favorite product features.

Compatible with AutoCAD

There’s 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 across all CAD platforms.

Lisp Routines

LISP Routines

You can run LISP routines developed in AutoCAD and other CAD applications, and develop your own in the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment (BLADE). BricsCAD is based on OpenLISP, with modern memory management and great performance.

Dynamic Blocks

Use your AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks in BricsCAD

You can use the Dynamic Blocks that you created in AutoCAD directly inside of BricsCAD. Control visibility states and stretch, flip, and rotate just as you would in AutoCAD.

BricsCAD Drawing Explorer

Drawing Explorer gives greater control over all drawing elements

The Drawing Explorer centralizes in BricsCAD what in other CAD platforms amounts to as many separate dialog boxes. Easy to navigate, easy to search.


The Quad: drawing, editing, and information near the cursor

BricsCAD’s unique Quad is a “head-up” command palette that predicts your command usage and offers one-click access to the command you’ll most likely need next. It’s powered by an A.I. agent that makes those command predictions, based on how you use BricsCAD.

BricsCAD Cloud

Cloud Connectivity

BricsCAD Cloud is built into BricsCAD Lite and gives you direct access to your cloud-based file storage and collaboration network.
