Create It Studio Architects Enhance Architectural Drafting Efficiency with BricsCAD
Create It Studio Architects is an Award-Winning architectural practice based in Manchester who are passionate about providing design that delivers beyond client’s expectations.
The company had been looking for an alternative to AutoCAD for some time due to AutoCAD not giving options to buy the software as a Perpetual option and being forced into a long-term Subscription plan. Their license fees were becoming increasingly burdensome and BricsCAD pricing offered a great alternative for their needs. They came across BricsCAD via a YouTube video online and downloaded the free 30-day trial.
Prior to using BricsCAD, the main challenges or pain points experienced were limited functionality and high licensing costs with the previous CAD software.
These challenges impacted the business and workflow by causing delays in project completion and increased expenses. Often, they would receive CAD files from other design team members (ie engineers) and were unable to open the files as they were produced in a newer version of AutoCAD. This added pressure to upgrade or find workarounds creating delays in the everyday running of projects.
They came across other similar software and decided to choose BricsCAD because the learning curve was zero and the interface, keyboard shortcuts and file format for using BricsCAD were identical to AutoCAD.
Create It Studio Architects Director Saghir Hussain said, “It was a no-brainer for us to switch to BricsCAD for our 2D drafting needs.”
The implementation process of bringing BricsCAD into the organisation was smooth and efficient. The user-friendly interface and comprehensive training resources provided by Bricsys made it easy for the team to adapt to the new software. Although there were initial concerns that there might be a steep learning curve for the new software, they were delighted to find that there was little to no learning required to switch from AutoCAD to BricsCAD.
During implementation, there were no major difficulties or obstacles encountered. Any minor issues were promptly resolved with the help of the KTF Software and Bricsys support team.
Saghir added, “BricsCAD has significantly helped to address the challenges previously faced. The advanced features and robust performance have greatly improved our productivity and project efficiency.”
Specific examples of improvements in efficiency, cost savings, or other benefits since implementing BricsCAD include huge cost saving. They went from a monthly subscription to a one-off fee for a lifetime licence for their team. They also took out the maintenance package allowing them to keep their version updated with the latest standards and prevent clashes with other CAD versions, allowing for streamlined collaboration and reduced design iterations.
Saghir told us, “We are highly satisfied with the support and resources provided by KTF Software and BricsCAD. The extensive documentation, interactive tutorials, and prompt customer support have been invaluable in resolving any queries or issues we encountered. We received timely assistance in answering questions ensuring minimal disruption to our workflow.”
Based on their experience, they now recommend BricsCAD to other businesses or professionals in their industry. Its affordability, versatility, and excellent performance make it a compelling choice for CAD needs.
Saghir concluded, “As our company grows, we intend to continue using BricsCAD as our primary CAD software. I want to explore the option of using BricsCAD as an alternative to Revit as a BIM software”.
