Bricsys has released the BricsCAD V14.2 upgrade, including a completely reworked Generative Drafting functionality and new Sheet Metal features.
With Generative Drafting, 2D views are automatically updated when the source 3D model changes. Views can be exported to model space, comparable to the former Quickdraw functionality.
It’s now possible to associate a bending table with a Sheet Metal model. Bend deduction values from the table are used to exactly calculate unfolding, matching the used manufacturing tools. Flange Connect allows closing gaps between two flanges.
The Snap Track feature creates a smart tracking line. Snap Track Lock locks the snap track path, while Hatch Pattern Snap adds snapping to hatch pattern geometry.
Other new features include using PDF export when publishing; removal of duplicate or overlapping entities with Overkill; improvements in Annotative Scales, Visual Styles; and support for CUIX files.
