Structural Add on for BricsCAD
« on: October 15, 2017, 05:00:36 pm »
Is anyone using Mech-Q?
I am looking at it for structural detailing.

Another to look at Strucplus it is an Aussie product pretty sure takes into account international sizes of steel sections etc.

Thanks Al
Best price I could find is $1800 for StrucPlus

Mech-Q add on is $700 for Piping, Ducts and Structural.
Structural alone is $400
Odd that you can also but AViCAD for $650 & it come with full Mech-Q and AViCAD includes Architectural software
3 programming languages supported by AViCAD Professional: LISP and SDS (C++ ADS compatible) VBA and COM automation

Might be worth running AViCAD as it claims to have 95% of AutoCAD features. BUt I might have to keep BricsCAD for all the LISP routines.
Not sure how much LISP it supports.

I'm just weighing my options at this time.
