Commenting Palette for Improved Collaboration with DWG drawings

The Commenting Palette allows commenting on DWG drawings synchronized by the Cloud Storage Palette of ARES Commander. You may add a general comment to the drawing or link your comment to selected entities. Your colleagues will see your comments and be able to answer them. It gives you an interactive and productive way to improve collaboration around the drawing.

DWG Block Editor – Advanced Custom Block with Parametric Size and States

The new Custom Block Editor of ARES Commander helps you to create smarter blocks. In this video we show how to use grips and parametric actions such as Move, Scale, Stretch, Rotate, Pattern, or Mirror. You can also create custom blocks with different states having elements that are hidden or shown. Combining multiple of these grips and actions allows you to create much smarter blocks. One custom block may replace tens of the blocks you currently use which will significantly increase your productivity.

Basics of Custom Blocks – Tutorial 2

In continuation of our first tutorial on custom blocks, we would like to introduce further features for customizable blocks with a second tutorial. At first, we focus on creating a customizable block that can be mirrored after insertion by clicking on a special handle and later, to create two different variants of a block using the visibility state.
