Sheet Sets and New Print Experience for ARES CAD Users

Sheet Sets and New Print Experience for ARES CAD Users

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.

BIM to CAD: DWG Drawings Automation From RVT or IFC

BIM to CAD: DWG Drawings Automation From RVT or IFC

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.

Create and Refresh BIM drawings in ARES Commander

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.

Associative Patterns (aka Arrays)

Associative Patterns (aka Arrays)

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.

Custom Blocks - Test Mode Multiple Base Points and others

Custom Blocks – Test Mode Multiple Base Points and others

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.
