With BIM Drawings Features in ARES Commander, you can leverage the intelligence of BIM to automate CAD drawings production. Technical information is becoming more and more complex and vast in construction projects with the deployment of 3D, BIM, and simulation. DWG CAD drawings can be used to document these projects in detail with focus on specific views and entities.
ARES Commander speeds up the process of organizing large drawings with the Sheets Sets Manager. The Sheet Set Manager is a great tool to organize the work with sheets, keeping all drawings and sheets accessible at the same point and at the same time offers a flexible way to customize the structure making it able to support several kinds of projects and workflows. Sheet Sets are typically used in large projects involving multiple drawings and sheets to print. Such projects will imply multiple versions and each version will be printed on paper or PDF.
ARES Commander speeds up 2D DWG drawings production from a BIM project. We can import BIM files in RVT format of Revit, or IFC format. Most interestingly the BIM drawings created with ARES Commander retain all the BIM information and can be updated when a new version of the BIM model is loaded.
One of the key competitive advantages of the ARES CAD Software is the Trinity concept building synergies between ARES Commander, the desktop version for Windows, Mac and Linux computers, ARES Kudo (Cloud) and ARES Touch (Mobile version for Android and iOS).
A Beta version of ARES Commander 2022, including some of the new features described in this document, is already available for test, but only for Windows 64bits and macOS.
Modern DWG Editing in a Browser 1. Commenting on workflow desktop, mobile, and cloud, 2. Commenting on view-only links, 3. Allow view-only drawings to export to PDF, PNG and .SLD and much more
Graebert made the decision to extend the free access to ARES Kudo until the end of June 2020 for all users. Additionally, any user that will have tried ARES Kudo in the first-half of 2020 will be offered a free license valid until the end of December 2020 only on the condition to join Graebert’s focus group.
Teams who use technical drawings (DWG) can now create, edit, comment, and review from any device anywhere using Graebert ARES Kudo and the power of Amazon Web Services
In this whitepaper, we compare the capabilities of the free and paid versions of computer-aided design (CAD) applications that run in Web browsers:
■ Autodesk’s AutoCAD Web App ( Formerly named AutoCAD 360 and before that AutoCAD WS )
■ Graebert’s ARES Kudo
The SaaS transformation is already significantly reshaping the CAD software industry. Multiple new players are emerging and major investments are made in research & development or acquisitions. As a matter of fact, the SaaS transformation is now a strong priority for a large number of end-users.
