BricsCAD Shape – The newest dwg based solid modeler

BricsCAD Shape is the newest “push & pull” 3d modeling software application that is basically a constituent of its leading BricsCAD family, an indigenous DWG competitior to Autodesk AutoCAD.

BricsCAD Shape is free to use and it is compatible with both macOS and Windows. Linux support is in beta testing phase.

BricsCAD Shape performs similar to a conceptual 3d modeling program, and specifically designed to deal with various modeling tasks in different industries especially the AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industries.

BricsCAD Shape facilitates the users to sculpt their ideas in solids from scratch. It’s provides the power of free-form modeling with complete CAD accuracy.

BricsCAD Shape comprises of an extensive library of 3D components so that the modelers can demonstrate their ideas efficiently. It is possible to import 3D models from any source, or produce 3d models independently.

It is possible to open shape model directly in BricsCAD BIM as well as create your design, whereas collaborating across disciplines with buildingSMART-certified IFC. It is also possible to generate construction drawings quickly and smoothly.

It makes CAD industry accurate solid-based schematic design; it is a solids modeler, not a surface modeler. It is primarily DWG-based and it is possible to carry an AutoCAD file into it devoid of translation or conversion.

The program can generate user-friendly parametric 3d direct-modeling components like doors, windows and materials.

Datakit announces the version 2018.1 of its CAD conversion tools

The latest update of Datakit’s CAD data exchange software range is now available!

This new version of CrossManager, CrossCad/Plg and CrossCad/Ware adds several improvements to Datakit’s interfaces:

– These applications can now read new versions of CAD formats: SOLIDWORKS 2018, NX 12 and DWG 2018.

– CrossManager is now able to convert 3D models to .prc files. This format allows to encapsulate 3D data in a PDF. Thus, CrossManager enables to integrate models coming from most of 3D formats in a PDF. Conversion to PRC is available from more than 20 CAD formats.

– The Revit format (.rvt files) reading is now available, expanding Datakit’s BIM data conversion offering, begun last year with the IFC format.

This new reader enables software vendors to add Revit import capabilities to their own application by using CrossCad/Ware. It also enables end users to convert Revit files to IGES, STEP, 3DPDF and PRC with CrossManager

A Revit file, converted in 3DPDF with CrossManager. The file can thus be opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader™ to be viewed. The instances list of the original model is accessible.

This new interface is able to read geometrical data along with colors and instances contained in Revit 2017.x files

Advance Steel – Status Control Inside Model And Drawings

In Advance Steel, the users can use the options to provide a Status level to both the drawing and the model elements and it is often described as Key Stages/Life Cycles inside the production process.

 

The Status system remains as part of the Fabrication data inside Advance Steel, it can contain levels/statuses which are included to it through the Management Tool (MT) System. Besides, comment levels are included to approve the status.

 

Various colors can be arranged while generating anything inside the MT. These can then be applied to provide colourisation/highlighting to the model. It is accomplished with the project explorer and the saved Query Feature.

Together with this, there exist a status level for drawings, the drawing system is segregated to the model elements, because drawings may not always remain at the equivalent status as the model, as for instance the model may be left for revision, the elements in the model are updated, but the drawings are not located at similar point. But at some point, they will obtain an adjustment, then a modification in status level of Reissued etc., then modifying to the same status as model at some point.

 

The vital fact is that a “STATUS” level, is not an adjustment to the drawing, it belongs to the present state of the drawing to the overall life cycle to the project, so the two systems are not same, but can be employed in combination to deliver a life cycle management to the system for Autodesk Advance Steel document and model management.

 

To get detailed idea on the different steps and operation, go through the following video presentations.
