With Release 9, TheoLt has shifted from using AutoCAD as is main development platform to BricsCAD. Why? Our plan is to develop the best mobile surveying solution possible and BricsCAD offered us the platform to do this cost effectively.

1. Size (and Speed). As AutoCAD has developed it’s “footprint” has grown, taking more space on the system and longer to load. Mobile platforms by definition are smaller and less powerful than their desktop counterparts and we found the larger and slower AutoCAD was becoming less usable on these systems.

2. Price. Simple! A fully fledged BricsCAD is cheaper than the AutoCAD LT platform and in these cost conscious times this is important, especially for small business.


A powerful CAD platform, with features familiar to you from native .dwg applications. BricsCAD® unifies advanced 2D design with the intelligence of 3D direct modelling.

BricsCAD offers CAD features familiar from other .dwg programs, and then adds timesaving tools and 3D direct modelling. With BricsCAD, you get more for less.

BricsCAD is available in 3 versions; Classic, Pro and Platinum. TheoLt requires a minimum of the Pro version. For a feature comparison list, click here.



TheoLt supports BricsCAD from Version 13 to the current Version 17, on 32 and 64 bit platforms.
