I have started using this CAD program, and I really like it so far.

How many users are there in the swamp?
Why is there never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over?

Yo! :)

I use it for development these days and the user base is steadily growing here in Aus. The app store is getting better all the time and some of the better-known acad app's are being ported over as well.

The platinum version has sheet metal, architecture and a constraint based 3d modelling engine (think Inventor) built in, all these disciplines save to dwg!

It starts fast too!

Note: BricsCAD Sheet Metal and BIM require separate licenses on top of a Platinum license.

I jumped from ACAD 2006 to BC16.
Like it so far, love the price, but I miss VLIDE.
So I still crank up ACAD for that.

Why? BricsCAD has DESCoder.exe that can encrypt LSP, DCL and TXT files into a single DES file. AFAIAA a DES file is very similar to a VLX file, although separate-namespace functionality is missing.

The Lisp Developer Support Package in the BricsCAD App Catalog may be of interest.

How do you use vlx-files from others ? I think there is a reason to miss them...

Good question..
Or the other way around. How can one use .Des in AutoCAD
(..probable a simple answer to it, but it will remain food for thoughts..)
