ARES Mechanical Introduces Support for AutoCAD Mechanical Entities

New features in Graebert’s mechanical CAD solution enable users to fully access and modify legacy drawings created in Autodesk’s AutoCAD Mechanical.

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; it is now possible for products other than AutoCAD to read and write DWG with full fidelity. But that seamless interoperability has not extended to AutoCAD Mechanical elements — until now.

Today, ARES Mechanical from Graebert delivers interoperability and discipline-specific tools as well as full DWG compatibility. In addition to offering a comprehensive collection of tools for creating engineering drawings, ARES Mechanical can now read and modify designs that were originally created with Autodesk’s AutoCAD Mechanical. This breakthrough accomplishment allows the millions of legacy drawings created with AutoCAD Mechanical to be fully accessed for continued use.
