BricsCAD V23.2 from Bricsys has new features and enhancements that make CAD design easier and more intuitive. Following are some of the updated features, and how to use them.

New QT Based Ribbon

One of the biggest updates to BricsCAD V23.2 is the enhanced QT-based Ribbon. While this feature is optional for now, it will become the default in V24. The new ribbon is more modern, with a search bar and comfortable icon spacing. It also highlights commands from other ribbons when you search for a term. 

How to use it: 

Type “USENEWRIBBON” command in the command line. 

Set the value to 1 and press Enter.

The enhanced QT-based Ribbon will be enabled. 

Use the search bar to find commands. 

Commands with the search term will be highlighted not just on the current ribbon but on other ribbons as well. 

To switch between layout styles, ribbon styles, panel systems, and to turn the new ribbon on/off, click on the interface settings option.

Enhanced OPTIMIZE User Interface

The OPTIMIZE command UX has been reworked, with input options that are more useful, intuitive, offer greater control and are easier to understand. The new UX features information icons that explain options more clearly and the visual feedback when drawing a gap tolerance has been enhanced, making it easier to understand what’s happening in the design. 

How to use the OPTIMIZE Command

Use the OPTIMIZE command UX by typing “_optimize” in the command line. 

Select your input options.

Tip! Hover over the information icons to see an explanation of the options.
