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).
In this video, we will see how ARES Commander can create 2D drawings in DWG format from a BIM project. We can import BIM files in RVT format of Revit, or IFC format. We can even combine different BIM files to mix the BIM information from different sources.
ARES Commander brings a new selection method to save time. Use the lasso selection method to specify entities within an irregularly formed contour specified by dragging the cursor.
ARES CAD Software now brings array copies of the same entity along multiple lines and columns and lets you modify the pattern as you wish. Patterns allow you to replicate an entity following a linear or circular organization or along a path. These patterns are now associative. You can now edit them using grips or by a double-click on the associative pattern.
Stamps can be used, for example, to indicate if your drawing (or a portion of it) is confidential, draft, approved, rejected, validated… etc
Equivalent to the dynamic blocks in other CAD software, you can use the custom blocks to create smarter entities, which size and look will adapt parametrically with additional grips. You may also include a dropdown menu to switch between different types and options for the same block.
You can use dynamic blocks created with AutoCAD as they are. They will keep their intelligence and parameters in ARES Commander.
