BricsCAD to STL Conversion

Here’s a list of valuable resources, packed with detailed instructions and expert tips for converting BricsCAD drawings to STL format using our converters. Peruse them now to make your BricsCAD drawings conversion process smoother later.


DWG BricsCAD Drawing

Bricsys's BricsCAD is a significant player in the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software landscape. It offers a compelling alternative to other CAD software, with its ability to keep pace with the latest DWG file format. It has the following features:

  • DWG Compatibility: The ability to read and write the latest DWG file format, which is the native format of AutoCAD and supported by many other CAD applications. DWG files can store 2D and 3D geometry data, as well as project metadata, such as layers, blocks, dimensions, etc.
  • BricsCAD Plug-ins: Automesher Application and Automapki Application plug-ins for BricsCAD allow you to import and export 3D and GIS data from various external file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, SHP, KML, etc. This enhances the interoperability of BricsCAD with other design tools and platforms.
  • ObjectBRX Technology: The customization technology for BricsCAD provided by Bricsys, which we use to develop our BricsCAD plug-ins. This ensures optimal integration with the BricsCAD environment and efficient translation of your external file formats, making BricsCAD an even more powerful tool for design professionals.

STL STereoLithography File

A file format that was developed by 3D Systems, a global leader in the 3D printing industry. It is primarily used for storing 3D models and exclusively contains triangular mesh data. Some of the benefits and features of STL files are:

  • Simplicity: STL files are easy to create and read by many software applications and 3D printers, as they only contain the coordinates of the vertices and the normal vectors of the triangles.
  • Lack of Additional Information: STL files do not include information on face color, texture, transparency, and named groups. This means that all STL models are effectively colorless in their raw form.
  • STL Files Converter: While it is technically possible to assign RGB color values to individual vertices in an STL file, it’s important to note that not all software, including our Autoconverter, currently supports this extension.
  • Binary and ASCII STL Formats: STL files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats. The binary format is generally preferred due to its significant reduction in file size compared to the ASCII format.
  • Units of Measurement: The coordinates in STL files are always defined in millimeters. If necessary, our STL converter will perform the required units conversion.
