Bricscad V is a minor update if you go by the numbering increment but it is a significant update in terms of what it offers.

This update adds the following important and new features:

1. .Net API for programming :: With the addition of the .NET API for Bricscad, you now have access to yet another programming platform for Bricscad and the opportunity to re-use .NET modules written for other CAD systems.

2. Support for TABLE object and TABLE styles :: The TABLE object which was introduced in AutoCAD couple of years back is now fully support in Bricscad, along with the ability to set TABLE styles as well.

3. 3D-solids-to-2D-drawings flattening :: A new SOLPROF command added in this version allows 3d solids to be projected onto a 2d plane parallel with the current viewport. The resulting 2D entities are placed on separate layers for hidden and visible lines.

4. Spline to Polyline conversion :: With the PEDIT command, you can now convert a SPLINE object to a polyline.

5. New system varaibles have been added: - GRIDMAJOR, GRIDDISPLAY, GRIDSTYLE (acad compatible) - GRIDAXISCOLOR, GRIDMAJORCOLOR, GRIDMINORCOLOR, GRIDXYZTINT (bricscad only).

6. WNEXT and WPREV commands (next/previous window) can be used to jump between all open drawing windows

7. VBA: Drag & Drop is supported for .dvb files.

8. The BREAK command now supports breaking a SPLINE object.

Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback at all times.
