What’s New in Bricsys BricsCAD Ultimate

Important notes on MacOS 10.15 Catalina:

  • Install and run on MacOS 10.15 CatalinaBricsCAD V20 could not be notarized. As a result you need to explicitly select “Open Anyway” in System Preferences… > Security & Privacy > General to install and run BricsCAD V20. Rationale: one of our libraries (the fbxsdk to import fbx files) is built with a too old SDK to allow notarization.
  • Trial license on MacOS 10.15 Catalina – The automatic trial activation does not work on Catalina. This literal key can be used instead: 1660-6752-0020-281509-3342

Improvements to BricsCAD Core:

  • “Selection Set Persistence” – BricsCAD is better at maintaining the previous selection set across multiple commands and operations
  • Linetype names in the “Load” option of the -LINETYPE command are no longer length-restricted
  • Added the option to store username and password during log-in via 24/7 panel
  • Constraints can now be applied to the insertion point of a TEXT or MTEXT entity
  • Inclined GCHORIZONTAL and GCVERTICAL constraints now display the proper glyph icons. Update of inclined horizontal or vertical constraints now properly maintains the ‘inclined’ property
  • 2D Parametric Blocks (BETA) The Parametric Blocks panel now displays an icon identifying block type: parametric, dynamic or normal
  • 2D Parametric Blocks (BETA) Extended the PBVISIBILITY command to allow the editing of visibility states and parameters
  • 2D Parametric Blocks (BETA) PBVISIBILITY can now be controlled via a dialog
  • Annotation scale “1:1” is now a protected scale factor, i.e. it cannot be deleted
  • Associative Hatch in a DBLOCK with a custom ElevationThe elevation of a DBLOCK with a non-zero elevation is properly maintained after the block is modified (e.g. after stretching the DBLOCK)
  • The names of stock Component folders in the dropdown menu are now translatable
  • Implemented a new command: CONVTOMESH converts entities to subdivision meshes
  • DWGCOMPARE now properly compare entities with associated vlo_VL objects
  • Improved performance of view operations (e.g. ZOOM) for a particular case that involves Attributes, nested Inserts and XCLIP
  • Improved the evaluation of FIELDs with formulas containing table cell references
  • We can now open hyperlinks that represent relative file paths
  • XREF Layer states can no longer be edited, deleted, overwritten or exported
  • Pressing the DEL key whilst input focus is on the Layer grid now deletes the selected layer, as expected
  • When double-clicking the nearest distance dimension (or edit field), the view is automagically zoomed out to include selected entities
  • Optimization: linetype display in wireframe modesMemory consumption and time for graphics generation were reduced. Linetypes are generated on the fly, depending on the current view size
  • Optimization: linetype generation in wireframe modes for physical printersMemory consumption and generation time have been reduced
  • “Zero-length geometry” option of PURGE command no longer deletes AECC entities
  • Add Reverse option when an unclosed REVCLOUD is created in freehandMode
  • Improved support for high resolution displays
  • Added Zoom and Navigate panels to the Ribbon tab
  • Reading in a PTX file is now 2 to 3 times faster than before, and the process requires significantly less memory
  • Starting a second instance of BricsCAD no longer hangs when another running instance is busy (or frozen)
  • Tools from imported palettes now use the proper icon, corresponding to the set BricsCAD theme, when both dark and light icons are present in the .xtp file
  • Toolpalettes now support gradient hatches
  • Gradient Hatch tools can now be added to Tool Palettes from the Hatch dialog
  • The WBLOCK dialog now behaves as expected with regard to save path settings

Improvements to BIM:

  • Door components now support the “Name” property
  • BIM profiles have an offset property, which can be checked and changed from the Profiles dialog
  • Detection of profiles during BimClassify takes into account profile types
  • On drawing open, BricsCAD BIM warns if the project database cannot be opened. This prevents a crash when a composition is dragged into the drawing area whilst the database is not open
  • Standard scale lists are available for Bimsection scale in the Property panel and the Sheet Set setup dialog. Custom value input is still accepted, of course
  • Grid axes are now properly projected onto non-intersecting orthogonal sections and elevations
  • Layers with envelope lines, generated from scratch, are frozen by default
  • When the command is called from the model DWG, the correct undo record is created in the section DWG
  • Load bearing directions for slabs can be set with BIMSETLOADBEARINGDIRECTION
  • Added the landing width parameter for half-turn stairs
  • Improve the implementation of stair nosing for non-straight stairs
  • The Hot Key Assistant is added to BIMStructuralConnect when multiple selections are made
  • Added the option to place load-bearing direction tags
  • ComponentsThe “Sliding Double Window” component has been updated with the correct constraints
  • CopyGuided now recognizes custom curve entities
  • Settings DisplayAxes, DisplayAxesForMEP and DisplaySidesAndEnds were moved from the system registry to the current drawing
  • Implemented a new command: ENABLEASSOCVIEWS adds service data to the main DWG and its XREFs. After the data is added, the BIMSECTIONUPDATE and VIEWBASE commands cause no modifications to the referenced drawings
  • Added a configuration file for IFC4 property sets. Added the BIMDEFAULTPROPERTIESPATH setting to control the list of autoloaded property namespaces
  • Calculations of solid mass properties are now performed in a helper thread. This keeps the BricsCAD GUI open for user input during complex massprop calculations
  • Profiles PanelA new setting, BimProfileStandards, selects the standards to be used. The Profiles Panel now remembers your library filter settings. Also, a search field was added to the Profiles Panel
  • AS Circular Hollow profiles have been added to the Profiles library
  • Added a tolerance setting for Propagate
  • We’ve restored the option to adjust Quickdraw settings as (hidden) command options
  • Section GenerationGenerated sections are now flagged as ‘out of date’ only when the corresponding 3D model file is actually modified, not simply when the time of the file is changed. This prevents unnecessary flagging for non-modeling-related reasons
  • Section lids are now generated according to the ‘Clip Display Settings’ variables, a new settings category in the Section Plane section of the Drawing Explorer dialog box
  • The size of section tool was reduced, reducing the normalization scale for boolean operations. This delivers more precise results from sectioning operations

Improvements to Mechanical:

  • Added buttons to toggle the Sequence configurator and to synchronize the model state with the cursor position
  • The camera time-line is now displayed by default
  • The list of available parameters now shows only free parameters (i.e. those that have not been added to the scene)
  • The scale of the animation editor can be changed via a slider
  • The sequence configurator now has a property panel. The property panel allows users to edit all necessary parameters of a selected sequence, as well as those of the current scene, including camera paths
  • You can add a new animation sequence via a double click on the time-line, and change the position of a sequence by dragging it along the timeline
  • Auto-balloon now supports views created via MVIEW
  • SR92033
  • Custom material properties now are supported in BOM tables and the Mechanical Browser
  • For hierarchical BOMs, the Counting Mode option is introduced to change the way the parts are counted. By default, the part’s count corresponds to its countwithin its parent component; it is now possible to change the mode to display the total count of the part in the overall assembly
  • Performance on large models has been improved
  • For hierarchical BOM tables, users can collapse or expand rows corresponding to sub-assemblies
  • The BOM panel has been redesigned and renamed as the BOM Manager, with a more compact, clean and user-friendly interface
  • The command now defaults to the option ‘Select all affected 3D solids’ by default
  • DmAuditThe DmAudit command is multi-threaded for both check and fix modes. Multi-threading can be controlled using a MTFLAGS setting
  • DmSimplifyGeometry and topology simplification is multi-threaded. Multi-Threading can be controlled using a MTFLAGS setting
  • Mechanical Browser”Select all” and “Select same” commands were added to the context menu for components. “Select all” selects all components with the same definition. “Select same” selects all components with the same parameters
  • Mechanical BrowserAn option was added to hide sub-components of standard components in the Mechanical Browser tree. This option is turned ON by default
  • Users can turn on and off the columns of the Parameters and Constraints panel. Items are divided into three collapsable groups, by their type
  • A corner relief is created automatically when 3 (or more) hard edges share a single vertex
  • Lofted bend features based on cylindrical faces now offer the option of analytical unfolding. In this mode, lofted bends are unrolled as a surface instead of discrete quadrangles
  • Associativity for analytically unfolded lofted bends is supported
  • The “ORTHO” option is now ignored, to facilitate the placement of an unfolding block in the vicinity of its source model
  • Implemented the new DRAWINGVIEWQUALITY setting, which controls the quality of drawing views. #ofcourse!


  • Fixed a crash that could occur when BIMSECTIONUPDATE and SECTIONPLANETOBLOCK commands were used together
  • Missing text labels in the Hatch dialog are now showing up as you’d expect
  • Panning via the middle mouse button while a draw command is active now works as expected
  • The context menu on the Render Materials panel now works as expected on macOS
  • Changed to a dark foreground color on a light background, so the text can be seen. #visibility
  • The Start Page now stays open when selecting a recent file, or opening a sample drawing on macOS
  • BricsCAD behaves properly when Toolbar size is changed and when Toolbar size is set to Large (or larger). 🙂
  • Filenames with Unicode (non-ASCII) characters can now be opened via the command line at startup
  • The layout of the main BricsCAD window is now more stable. BricsCAD could crash on reloading the set of panels of a workspace, for instance when closing the CUI dialog or when switching to another workspace or profile
