Brics Bim

Posted : admin On 1/2/2022

“Our purpose is to facilitate and bring together the built environment community within the greater Brisbane region, to share and exchange thoughts and knowledge in respect to technology innovation across the industry.”

The committee believes in providing an avenue for asset owners, practitioners, contractors and interested parties to come together in an informal gathering to discuss, learn and share from others in the industry.

Now in our sixth year the non-profit group meets bi-monthly and presents a range of topics from technical, managerial, through to business and aspirational. We are seeking speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds. We welcome sponsors to help provide an atmosphere of support and openness in our meetings.

BricsCAD BIM supports global, open standards to ensure smooth collaboration with everyone on the extended design/build team. Add Bricsys 24/7, our SaaS-based Common Data Enviroment (CDE), as the hub for model sharing and project communications. The Bricsys® team will demonstrate our intuitive, direct modeling engine for design capture, automated constraint engine and advanced A.I. Automation to deliver the continuous level of BIM development. We’ll showcase spectacular new features for the creation of construction documentation that will help you generate deliverables in record time. BricsCAD BIM is an alternative Building Information Modelling package that offers a design-to-documentation workflow that focuses on “Design First”.

ANZ Guide to ISO 19650 - Preview

We came across this 'industry preview' of the ANZ Guide to ISO 19650. At the moment it only includes an introduction and regional guidance to Part 1, with Part 2 still being authored...

Digital Enablement for Queensland

As the construction sector transitions from paper-based plans to digital ones, the Digital Enablement for Queensland Infrastructure - Principles for BIM implementation will guide the Queensland Government’s consistent adoption of this new approach. This will provide certainty to industry for its future investment and training decisions.

Collaborate Affiliated Groups

'BrisBIM is excited to announce that we are now participating as a collaborate affiliate group member! BrisBIM have long been of the view that BIM groups should be working together, sharing information, not operating in isolated silos (sound familiar?). Collaborate have provided that framework.'

BricsCAD BIM Features

With BricsCAD BIM you can design walls, windows, doors and more from scratch,
or use the extensive design sets to just drag and drop elements. Easy, fast and smart.


Powerful Multipurpose BIM Explorer

The same flexibility BricsCAD offers in 3D modeling, it also offers in attaching information to building elements.

Navigate swiftly through all building data thanks to the customizable data explorer.

Browse predefined compositions or create your own.

BricsCAD BIM includes an extensive library of windows, doors etc.

Draw Walls Easy and Quickly

BricsCAD BIM allows you to easily modify positions and dimensions. To design walls in BIM, draw their footprints in 2D and then pull them up to the desired level. You can also specify their level by entering dimensions interactively.

Windows and Doors

Arrays of windows and doors are included in the BricsCAD BIM design sets. To specify windows and doors, choose or modify a design from the library or create your own designs from scratch.

Explore Your Model from Site to Room Level of Detail

To give you greater flexibility in developing BIM designs, a single drawing file contains a “site,” which can have multiple “buildings,” with each building holding one or more “stories.” The default drawing holds one building with three stories. You specify properties for the new site, building, and story elements.



Easily attach information to building elements

The same flexibility BricsCAD offers in 3D modeling, it also offers in attaching information to building elements. BricsCAD stores building materials and compositions in its project database. All BIM database features are accessible through the dockable BIM panel.

Building materials contain information about specific materials along with layer names and rendering definitions.

You can add a custom number of tags to a building composition. Those tags will serve as a filter when searching through your database for compositions.

Reuse compositions across projects

The library database included with BricsCAD allows you to reuse compositions and building materials across multiple BIM projects. To share information among databases, simply drag building materials and compositions from one database to another.

Use Live Sections to Explore Your Models from the Inside

Get rid of obliterating geometry by activating one or more clip planes to get optimal access to the part of interest. Move clip planes in real-time. Intersections are hatched according to material patterns.

V17Create Detail Sections

Create a detail section using the option named “Detail” of the bimSection command. Define the volume of the section by specifying three corner points. It uses the dynamic UCS as the base of the box; the base plane is also the section plane.

V17Match Perspective

Overlay your rendered model on a photograph using existing vanishing points and angular lines for a most realistic fit.

Sections and Sheet Sets

Brics Bimstec Outreach Summit

The redesigned drawing generation feature lets you generate sheet sets in seconds. The dockable Sheet Set manager offers smooth navigation between the project drawings.

  • Flexible Document Navigation
  • Easy Creation Of Sheet Selection Sets
  • Easy Creation Of Associative View Label Blocks
  • One-button Publish Of Sheet Selection Set
  • One-click Insertion Of Sheet List Table
