Have any bitheads downloaded / installed this BricsCAD yet?

I'd like to know how well it does lisp, like entmake, xdata, dictionaries, ssget filtering, mapcar, lambda, apply, atoms-family etc. Obviously vl-stuff is out, but how robust is the vanilla lisp, that'd be the question.

Thanks.

I've got it, haven't installed yet.

A person might get derned excited about this product if it can be automated to an appreciable level.

Looks like we will be getting this, I downloaded the pro trial version, does everything we need it to and a wee bit more as well.

DWFIN, PDFOUT, block manager, wintopo all built into the program.  we can have 10 network licenses for just over 1500 ex vat, a lot less than one AutoCAD seat.

If we can get some LT licences as well we could be even better off as we only need 5 pro licences for the CAD staff and the rest for engineers.

I still can't see what the catch is, there must be something fishy to make this program so cheap, or am I just too cynical?

How did you get it installed?? ( that's if you're talking about bricscad )

I get a dialog box asking for a registration key to activate VBA, but is says VBA is not installed with the trial version.  :?

i had problems getting the vba running once i bought the pro version of bricscad... I BELIEVE you can automate the trial version with standalone VB if you want to try it like that

no I installed the demo and then bought the program but the demo install doesn't install the vba so an uninstall is in order

We are going for the pro version of ProgeCAD, we don't use VBA a lot, the only drawback so far is a lack of vlisp commands, so some routines won't work for me.

But all in all I can't complain, for the work we do, I can't really justify the outlay for AutoCAD when this will do.

Ok, I've been looking on the internet and I've come up with 4 main versions of IntelliCAD.

These are 4M, BRICSCAD, PROGECAD and CADOPIA.

Prices are all much of a sameness only about 100 from lowest to highest.

My problem comes about now I have to recommend one, I'm swaying towards progecad, but I'm woried about it's stability.

Anyone have any recomendations about which one to use, and why it's better.

The fact that BricsCad has been chosen as an optional CAD engine for EaglePoint software speaks a lot.  EP involves some very complicated land development design tasks.  I have not heard anything negative about any of those choices.

4M's intellicad engine core is a version behind the others if I'm not mistaken.

Have any bitheads downloaded / installed this BricsCAD yet?

I'd like to know how well it does lisp, like entmake, xdata, dictionaries, ssget filtering, mapcar, lambda, apply, atoms-family etc. Obviously vl-stuff is out, but how robust is the vanilla lisp, that'd be the question.

Thanks.

entmake = yes
xdata = yes
dictionaries = yes
ssget filtering = yes
mapcar = yes
lambda = yes
apply = yes
atoms-family = yes

It is good [just that].
