BricsCAD Shape – A handy tool for designers and architects

Bricsys, the leading developer of cad software, has introduced a new 3D conceptual modeling tool that is specifically designed for architects to improve the speed of their 3D design work.

With this conceptual modeling tool, the architects and engineers can simplify their schematic design work.

The multi-functional “Shape” tool is applied to generate walls, slabs, structural elements and more. Direct modeling features allow you to drag, connect, push/pull and extrude as per your choice. Wall connections are automatically mitered for you.

With BricsCAD, the designer can create their ideas in 3D easily with a series of common architectural components and materials together with straightforward shape generation tools. BricsCAD employs the similar parametric and modeling engine (ACIS) that is found in Bricsys’ BricsCAD Platinum CAD software.

BricsCAD Shape files can be opened directly in Bricsys’ BIM platform, BricsCAD BIM to speed up the BIM workflow. BricsCAD Shape is totally free to use.

It comprises of a library of materials, textures and pre-built 3D components. The included collection of doors and windows can be utilized separately. The users can also generate their own custom versions. Form your model according to your preference with the Visual Styles panel in Shape.

Shape is only compatible with Windows (later on it will work with macOS and Linux). It is necessary for the users to sign up for a Bricsys account and download the program to test it. Not just for this reason, BricsCAD offers more material and library content as compared to the free version of FormIt.

Some useful cad tips to generate a door dynamic block in AutoCAD

This autocad video tutorial is associated with AutoCAD dynamic block course. By watching the video, one can learn the process in detail to generate a door dynamic block with Flip, Align, Distance and other parameters. It will facilitate the block to be utilized in different circumstances.

 

A dynamic block refers to a block definition that comprises of rules, or parameters necessary for modifying the appearance of the block reference when it is included in the drawing.

 

With dynamic blocks, it is possible to add one block that can adjust shape, size, or configuration rather than adding one of many static block definitions.

 

You author dynamic blocks with either constraint parameters or action parameters.

How to use Revit to produce rebar shape images

In some versions of Revit, it is possible to include an image to a family instance or type by using the “Image” or “Type Image” parameter.

Toward Rebar families specific there exist the “Shape Image” parameter, which allow to generate well formatted rebar bending schedules along with the rebar shape image.

Revit provides Rebar Shapes as per the local requirements and codes for various global countries. These Rebar Shapes don’t include these Shape Images so the users get the ability to customize this.

For rebar schedule demonstrations throughout demos of “Rebar with Revit”, I edited the default rebar shape families can be edited and the shape code images can be included to the Shape Image parameter by adhering to BS8666 : 2005. This can produce nice formatted bending schedules for a simple reinforced concrete tunnel.

One can download the content applied for this small model from below:

New Railing Feature And Other Crucial Features In Revit 2018

This revit video is created on the new improved railing feature in Revit 2018. The revit users can now include railings to a whole multistory stair tower and topography with a simple mouse click. Besides, railings can be grouped with their host stairs as per their level heights. The users can flip the run line by component in stair.

Some other crucial features are :-

3D Hook for Rebar , this tool can flip your hook around the axis of Rebar and is very useful for create Reinforcement Detailing.

Tag with Thumbnail View originates from the perspective view in the family. By applying crop thumbnail, the users can produce only one region for every tag.

With the addition of magic tools in Revit 2018, it becomes easier for generating the wall layer in edit assembly dialogue. Now, it is possible to generate group out of your preferred layer for each wall and then edit and control this groups and attach them to another walls.
