BrickDesign enables the controlled design and manipulation of a large amount of discrete elements. The plug-in provides a parametric design environment, which allows for a fast build-up of brick façade geometries, which can easily be adapted to changing design intentions and requirements. The core concept of the software is that the brick unit is the basis for every action performed. Basically, a design is generated through drawing, placing and manipulating individual bricks. BrickDesign offers different methods to manipulate the individual bricks in order to map patterns on a façade. These methods can be extended ad libitum through an open script interface, which gives access to a number of brick parameters.
