Bricscad is a powerful yet easy-to-use DWG CAD alternative that offers a complete features set aimed towards professional users. Bricscad reads and writes the DWG format and offers high compatibility with AutoCAD® 2009. Bricscad has a very recognizable intuitive user interface and requires no extra training. Dimensions are updated automatically when the geometry has changed. You can even dimension Model Space entities in Paper Space and see them being updated when you modify the entities in Model Space. In BricsCad, Dimensions can be linked to entity snap points such as endpoints, midpoints and perpendicular. Associative dimensioning applies to both linear and angular dimensions. Layer states let you save and restore configurations of layer properties and states. You might want a layer to display in blue sometimes and green at other times, or you need some layers to be off or frozen or locked when editing a specific part of a drawing. After spending a lot of time adjusting all layer settings you can use layer states to save your settings. You can save multiple layer states in a each drawing. Using BricsCad's Quick Select you can specify filters, such as entity type, color, linetype or any other entity property, to compose a selection set.
