Making the Move from AutoCAD to BricsCAD

BricsCAD is taking the modern design world by storm. Its full compatibility with all things AutoCAD, paired with its low cost and perpetual licensing model, have made it the fastest growing CAD system on the market today. Even though BricsCAD uses all the same command/features/functions as AutoCAD, it’s important to get your staff quickly up to speed on the most important tools and features in their new system, and ZenTek Consultants is here to help.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
