Learn how to generate plans, sections and elevations in BricsCAD BIM

The procedure to create a set of drawings consists of the following steps:
1. Create section planes entities in the model.
2. Edit the section plane properties.
3. Generate the sections.

Creating section entities
User Preferences

Three BIM user preferences are involved in the drawing generating process:
Section Sheet Set Template Metric, Section Sheet Set Template Imperial and Section Scale.

In the BIM node of the section properties, set the Section Type, the Callout Position, and scale.

Defining the section properties
BricsCAD® is the powerful CAD software platform unifying the familiar feature set of native dwg with advanced 2D tools and intelligent 3D direct modeling on Windows and Linux, and this at a compelling price.
