In this blog, we will see how we can create 2D drawings in DWG format from BIM models. Remember that we can import BIM files either in Revit RVT format or in IFC format. We can even combine them to unify BIM information from different sources, and use BIM filters to isolate only the content that we want to see in our drawings.
The new cycling selection option solves the problem in a much more intuitive way. Whenever you hover over the cursor on overlapping entities, you will see this icon. This helps you to display a list of the entities and select only the one you want. Cycling selection can be deactivated from the status bar.
To work more efficiently on your drawings, you need easier access to your tools. Under this premise, ARES Commander seeks a constant evolution that allows you to make your workflow more and more efficient.
In this blog, we will see how to access and extract the information of BIM projects imported in ARES Commander.
The principal analyst of consulting firm Consilia Vektor, Randall Newton has devoted decades to analysis, reporting, and education about design and engineering software — yet there’s always something new to learn.
With one foot in architecture and one in journalism, the founder of Architosh, Anthony Frausto-Robledo has built a successful career that straddles both worlds — and gives him a unique perspective on digital transformation.
The CEO and founder of aec+tech Niknaz Aftahi believes that everyone — from architects to outlaw students — should have access to the latest knowledge, and she’s determined to help.
Robert Graebert, CTO of Graebert GmbH presented the ARES CAD Software at the ODA Summit 2021. Graebert GmbH is a founding member of the Open Design Alliance. Graebert develops DWG based CAD products under the ARES brand and has the second-largest DWG CAD user base. We are uniquely positioned in the market with our focus on providing our CAD solutions on desktop, mobile and cloud with a consistent set of APIs for our development partners.
While BIM software is increasingly used to design buildings and their systems in 3D, the DWG format used by CAD software such as ARES Commander remains the lingua franca to document such projects with 2D drawings. As a result, it is estimated that 80% of the users in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) industry keep using CAD software.
With BIM Drawings Features in ARES Commander, you can leverage the intelligence of BIM to automate CAD drawings production. Technical information is becoming more and more complex and vast in construction projects with the deployment of 3D, BIM, and simulation. DWG CAD drawings can be used to document these projects in detail with focus on specific views and entities.
