CS Artisan for BricsCAD – affordable CAD for Landscape

At CloudScapes, we deliver complete support for our cloud-enabled CS Artisan professional landscape product for both the BricsCAD (CS Artisan BC) and AutoCAD (CS Artisan ACAD) environments.

What Is BricsCAD?

BricsCAD is a software application for computer-aided design (CAD). It is fully compliant with the industry standard DWG format and comes complete with full command, script, macro and menu compatibility within AutoCAD. BricsCAD makes CAD more affordable by providing  entry-level CAD software that’s accessible to all.

At the same time, BricsCAD Pro allows developers such as CloudScapes to develop more affordable bespoke apps and improved industry-specific solutions. The good news is that there’s no need to change your printer, templates, blocks or sheet set layouts if you’re moving from AutoCAD to BricsCAD. They’re fully compatible, with command names, aliases, and system variables the same in BricsCAD and AutoCAD®.

BricsCAD Pro – CAD software for 2D drafting, 3D modelling & apps

BricsCAD is based on native DWG for the highest compatibility with other CAD users across any industry, offering the following features:

  • Command compatible
  • Menu (.CUI, .CUIX) compatible
  • Macro/script compatible
  • Support file (.PC3, .LIN, .PAT, .DWT, .SSM) compatible
  • Based on current DWG technology

“Adapting to BricsCAD was really easy. Within one week, we had made a full migration to BricsCAD: as if we had never changed our CAD platform at all.” – former AutoCAD user
