You can customize BricsCAD by adding custom programs written in any of several programming languages that run within BricsCAD, including LISP, C/C++, VB/VBA/VB.NET. BricsCAD offers several API's : COM, BRX, TX, .NET. With BricsCAD, you can run many programs originally created for use with AutoCAD.
Specifically, you can use programs written entirely in AutoLISP with no modification. Also .dvb project files (VBA macro files) originally created on AutoCAD should run without modification on BricsCAD.
BricsCAD supports the AutoCAD dialog control language (DCL), which is used by other applications such as Lisp/TX/BRX to customize dialog boxes. You can use all DCL files unmodified within BricsCAD.
To write applications in C or C++, BricsCAD offers BRX, a C/C++ language interface, code-compatible with the AutoCAD Runtime eXtension (ARX) interface in AutoCAD.
BricsCAD includes, a C/C++ language interface compatible with the AutoCAD Development System (ADS) interface in AutoCAD.
