‘CAD developer Graebert GmbH is offering free use of its ARES Kudo cloud-based CAD solution for working with DWG drawing files. The offer — available at kudo.graebert.com — extends through the end of May 2020.
Facing the Covid-19 pandemia, staying at home is the civic behavior that we must all adopt to stop the expansion of the virus and save lives. By all means Cloud is the easiest solution to organize the collaboration and grant each employee remote access to a solution to create and modify technical drawings in DWG format.
On March 5, 2020, Graebert Japan held the Graebert Japan Annual Meeting 2020 in Akihabara, Tokyo. Graebert Japan is the Japanese subsidiary of Gräbert GmbH (aka Graebert) in Germany which offers the “ARES” series of DWG compatible CAD software (Formerly JDraf) with outstanding cost performance and advanced technology.
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.
Get free maps service for ARES Commander subscribers. Search for any address and get street maps and satellite images to insert in the background of your drawings.
Select any hatch entity and you will see grips that will help you to manipulate directly the shape. Hovering over a grip point displays also a contextual menu with editing options.
