Here are some pretty pictures and UI captures from the new BricsCAD BIM module:

Automatically generate user defined plans, sections, elevations and more.
A storey in a building defines a set of parameters, e.g. window height or floor-to-floor height, which can be used to define the dimensions of building components. Each storey parameter also defines a storey control surface.
Figure 3: Control Surface dialog
Control surfaces define the position, shape or height of walls, floor slabs, roofs, frames, openings, etc.
Figure 4: Frame Builder dialog
The Frame Builder creates scripts that are kind of a recipe for a frame type. Windows and doors sharing the same script are updated simultaneously, although they can have different dimensions.
Figure 5: Roof Builder dialog
Create all kinds of roofs by assigning a slope angle or a profile to the edges of one or more open or closed polylines.
Figure 6: Stair Builder dialog
A walkline form defines the position, shape and height of a stair. All properties, such as the geometry, winders, stringers and materials, are defined through the Stair Builder dialog box.
