BricsCAD V17 Sheet Metal is Best-in-Class!

BricsCAD V17 Sheet Metal is the Best Alternative to High End CAD Systems – at a Fraction of their price!

Lest you think that BricsCAD V17 is all about Building Information Modeling, let me set you straight: for mechanical designers, BricsCAD V17 offers massive upgrades to an already intuitive Direct Modeling workflow; improved, seamless read/write of industry standard MCAD design files and assemblies, and the third release of the world’s best Sheet Metal modeling and unfolding system. What? There’s a BricsCAD V17 Sheet Metal design add-in?  What makes it so good?

I was hoping that you’d ask that question. The engineers at Bricsys took an ingenious approach to sheet metal modeling – one that is unique in the industry. Sheet metal forms are represented as lofted solids in BricsCAD V17 Platinum + Sheet Metal. This method creates features that can be regenerated with ultimate fidelity, over and over again, without causing modeling failures that plague other sheet metal design systems.

Sheet Metal for BricsCAD lets designers import or create, rework, unfold, and export sheet metal parts using 3D Direct Modeling. This intuitive workflow gives your designers freedom from many of the conceptual mistakes that surface when using history-based MCAD modelers. You will never need to restart your sheet metal designs from scratch because of modeling failures. Sheet Metal for BricsCAD guarantees the ultimate flexibility in how your models are created, modified, unfolded and re-folded.

Sheet Metal for BricsCAD V17 adds parametric form features that work like virtual forming tools to modify a sheet metal blank. The library included with the module contains the most commonly used form features, such as bridges, louvers, and embossed features.

Sheet Metal for BricsCAD is a separate module, which runs on top of BricsCAD V17 Platinum. The cost of BricsCAD Platinum and the BricsCAD Sheet Metal module is $1,240 through the end of November, 2016. If you create sheet metal forms, this is the best bargain of the decade!
