CorelCAD Discontinued – Explore ARES CAD solutions from Graebert

‘The essential CAD technology used in CorelCAD was supplied by Graebert, a German software developer who sells its own CAD products and also supplies drafting technology to other vendors. PTC Onshape and Dassault Systemès DraftSight are two of many CAD products that use Graebert technology. By seat count of all products using Graebert technology, only Autodesk AutoCAD has sold more copies in the 2D (drafting) software market.

A notice on the Alludo website recommends customers turn to Graebert. “Alludo is encouraging CorelCAD users to explore an alternative ARES CAD software solution for ongoing support and new releases.” The release notes says ARES is “powered by the same engine as CorelCAD.” A recent update of ARES Commander adds import and export of the Corel graphics formats CorelDRAW (.cdr) and Corel DESIGNER (.des).

Graebert is offering all CorelCAD users with an active perpetual license a temporary deal to convert to ARES Commander: three months of free technical support for CorelCAD and three years of the ARES Trinity bundle (PC/tablet/online) for $350.’
