If you are an AutoCAD or BricsCAD user, then you might be interested to know that I've updated BricsCAD for AutoCD Users for AutoCAD 2014 and BricsCAD V14. My book shows you how the two CAD programs are different and similar.
Chapter 5 "Operating Dual-CAD Design Offices" is a great resource for design firms transitioning to another CAD package -- not just BricsCAD -- because it shows you how to run a dual-CAD and dual-OS (Windows and Linux) office.
This 272-page, free ebook has a whole new chapter on working with 3D in BricsCAD as compared to AutoCAD: direct modeling, Quad cursor, constraints, design intent, assembly modeling, kinematic analysis, generative drawings, sheet metal design, and more.
Here is the table of contents:
1. BricsCAD for AutoCAD Users
2. Comparing User Interfaces
3. Compatibility of Drawing Elements
4. Customizing and Programming BricsCAD
5. Operating Dual-CAD Design Offices
6. Working in 3D
A. Command Name Cross-reference (between AutoCAD and BricsCAD)
B. System Variable Cross-reference
C. Command Alias Cross-reference
D. Keystroke and Button Cross-reference
