Mechanical design and drafting professionals have made DWG-based software an industry standard for a generation. In the decades since the DWG data storage format was introduced, however, the software market has evolved, giving professionals more DWG-based options to choose from.
ARES CAD technologies eliminate waste in AEC/O workflows from design to construction for Japanese Big 5 firm Taisei Corporation.
New features in Graebert’s mechanical CAD solution enable users to fully access and modify legacy drawings created in Autodesk’s AutoCAD Mechanical.
How can BIM data be efficiently shared with all the professionals involved in the project? With DWG — and ARES Commander builds better bridges between BIM creators and DWG consumers.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) was sold as a way of get ting automated drawings by modelling a building in 3D. – What we actually got is more drawings. We now model a building to get drawings that need 2D editing, and if the model changes, we need to do the edits again.
ARES Trinity of CAD platform provides intelligent and automated DWG CAD solutions to multiple industries, including AEC and manufacturing. And it does so by providing favorable economics over rivals so companies can redeploy capital towards remote work and emerging technologies
Graebert’s ARES CAD technology is based on the (.dwg) file format in native form, meaning the software is essentially fully native compatible with Autodesk’s AutoCAD; it can read, create, and modify files directly in the same format as AutoCAD, but for a fraction of the cost. ARES CAD technology at the desktop level feels largely familiar to its US rival’s software, from dialogs to keyboard commands, facilitating the ability for companies, teams, and individuals to transition from AutoCAD or another (.dwg) based CAD platform really easily.
‘More than any other DWG vendor, Graebert of Germany has done more to connect the primary design platforms with one another — desktop/laptop on Linux/Mac/Windows; tablet/phone on Android/iOS; and Web browsers. The name of the company may not be familiar to you, as they tend to sell white label CAD. Companies like Corel, Dassault Systems, and Onshape use Graebert’s “ARES” code for their DWG editors.’
Graebert sees that much BIM work is also done in DWG — 3D modeling in BIM, 2D drawings in DWG. Drawings are useful in organizing the complexity of BIM models, and for focusing on the details that are needed to carry out building projects — never mind the legal weight that signed drawings carry.
”ARES Commander began as a replacement to AutoCAD, and then found its greatest impact as OEM software (licensed and branded by other firms) by firms such as Dassault Systemes (“DraftSight”) and Corel Software (“CorelCAD”). Graebert GmbH found further success in selling into verticals, such as facilities mapping and kitchen design.
