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.

Licensing Defined

Single User License

The single user license agreement is for a single user. Each single user license allows two activations. You can install it on two machines, for example on a workstation in the office and on a laptop in the field. However, only one license can be in use at once. Single user licensing is available for perpetual or subscription licensing. Academic licenses are always single-user.

Network License

The network licensing agreement enables multiple users to access BricsCAD within a LAN (Local Area Network). The number of available network licenses defines the number of users who can concurrently use the software. The network license option is available for perpetual or subscription licensing and includes a one-year maintenance contract. Network licensing is also available to institutions that use an academic license.

Perpetual License

When you purchase a perpetual license, you own the software. BricsCAD editions run on Microsoft Windows, macOS and Linux.
There are 2 maintenance options:

  • The Maintenance option includes automatic upgrades and support.
  • You can purchase upgrades at your discretion.

Subscription License

When you choose the subscription option, you have access to the latest version of BricsCAD for a year. It includes Priority Support and access to all new versions that are released during the time your subscription is active.


All product updates and major releases

Imagine the benefits of product subscription with the safety of a perpetual software license. That’s what you get when you add Maintenance to your BricsCAD purchase. Maintenance customers are entitled to all product updates and major BricsCAD versions for the duration of their contract.

Fast, priority Product Support when you need it

Even the most experienced users of the best CAD software need help at times. BricsCAD Maintenance customers enjoy fast, priority Product Support as a part of their Maintenance contract. Your support request moves to a priority queue for rapid turn-around and resolution.

BricsCAD Cloud

BricsCAD’s built-in Bricsys 24/7 panel gives you instant access to drawings and ensures you always have the latest version of a tracked file. Download, view and edit natively in BricsCAD, while keeping full track of DWG and XREF history.

  • See who’s working on which file
  • Avoid conflicted files with check-in / check-out
  • Always work on the latest version

Ordering and Unlocking BricsCAD – How It Works

2. A Techevate sales technician will then verify order details and create the appropriate BricsCAD Activation Key(s) which will be sent to the email address you submitted with this order. This may take up to one business day after you submit your order.

3. If you haven’t yet, you’ll need to download and install the BricsCAD Free Trial software before applying your Activation Key. Your BricsCAD Activation Key removes the 30 day use restriction imposed on the installed BricsCAD software.
