New BIM (Building Information Modeling) features being rolled out in ARES Commander 2020 with the ambition to build the best-in-class solution to create DWG drawings of your BIM projects.

Graebert Aiming at Fixing the Broken Workflows Between CAD and BIM

Graebert announced the availability of the BIMflow Pack for ARES Commander OEM. The ARES CAD platform is used by a multitude of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to build vertical applications on top of the ARES engine. The OEM versions of ARES are customized and rebranded as per the needs of the ISVs that can leverage from the CAD features of ARES to concentrate their efforts on industry-specific features to be added on top.

Graebert Steps into the BIM World

The initial BIMFlow performs these tasks:

Imports RVT and IFC files
Examines read-only IFC properties with Properties panel
Toggles elements of BIM models with the new BIM Navigator panel
Extracts IFC data in CSV format to create in-drawing tables for quantity take-offs and reports
Generates 2D sections of BIM models

Graebert Announces Updates to ARES Native DWG CAD Product Line

‘ARES Commander 2020 can now allow access to BIM model data via Industry Foundation Classes (.ifc) and Revit (.rvt) and (.rfa) file formats. Once BIM models are loaded into ARES Commander 2020 you can view the model in 3D in the graphics area and also create sections through the model. You can also extra data from BIM elements like beams and columns through new filters for data extraction. (…)

Digital Reality: AutoCAD Web falls short against Cloud CAD ARES Kudo

A new white paper comparing Autodesk AutoCAD Web to Graebert ARES Kudo finds that Kudo “significantly” outperforms AutoCAD Web in almost every category of comparison. The white paper, “Comparing Cloud-based CAD Systems from Autodesk and Graebert,” is written by well-known CAD expert Ralph Grabowski. The paper goes into painstaking detail to compare the two products feature by feature.

Graebert Gets Into BIM

Graebert is no stranger to BIM [building information modeling], even though the company is never associated with the ArchiCADs and Vectorworks of the world. It has a subsidiary named iSurvey whose SiteMaster software is used to measure and model the interiors of buildings and kitchens in a BIM context for six years now.
