For anyone wanting to find out more about Bricscad here is a link to hundreds of short 2 or 3 minute tutorial videos each covering different topics 2d-drafting 3d-modeling learn-bim customization drawing installation-licensing interface images mechanical printing-plotting programming sheetmetal learn-shape There is also a series of books offered freely that cover Bricsacd BricsCAD for AutoCAD users (348 pages) Inside BricsCAD V18 (386 pages) Customizing BricsCAD V18 (590 pages) There is a complete training course covering the basics which is apparently over 36 hours of content from “Ron Myers - Summit Learning & Technology” which looks to be free as well, though you do have to register. And quite a few blogs are now covering Bricscad https://blog.bricsys.com/ https://blog.bricsys.com/category/topics/heidis-blog/ https://www.cadnauseam.com/2018/07/31/a-b-tip-1-clean-slate/ http://www.cadalyst.com/cad/bricsys-we’re-not-holding-back-dwg-part-1-37431 For anyone wanting to try out the program here are links to download a 30-day trial https://www.bricsys.com/en-intl/bricscad/ https://www.bricsys.com/en-intl/bim/ https://www.bricsys.com/en-intl/sheetmetal/ Bricscad also has a free program called Shape which gives you the chance to build models using the same tools as are found in the full program. It's a really good way to try out all the 3D modeling tools. Without the 30 day limit The file format is DWG just the same as all the other flavours of Bricscad so if you are doing an initial sketch or developing a complete drawing package in Bricscad, turning your model into a BIM model or using the sheetmetal upgrade, it always remains the same DWG file, with the same commands https://www.bricsys.com/en-intl/shape/ And if you come across a problem with the program or even have ideas to improve it then there is always support, and any questions here are sent directly to the people developing the program.
dfooty posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi, I need to start drawing 2d floor plans and house plans for extensions. These need to pass planning permission so I am assuming that walls need to be a certain thickness etc. I was wondering if there are any books out there or any guides which can show me step by step how to produce a plan which can be passed by planning? Thanks,
I recently had the following question posed to me on my Blog: ‘Hi are you able to advice me on a course book that would give me all the correct information to produce a high standard joinery drawing that would then be sent off for approval’ You can read my answer here: Must have CAD books for Drafters http://cadso.co/GYf5MP I thought it would be interesting to open this question up. What books have you read, which books to you turn to when you get stuck? Do you even read books ant more - do you prefer videos or the internet?
