DWG drawings from Revit and IFC BIM projects with ARES Commander

DWG drawings from Revit and IFC BIM projects with ARES Commander

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.

Cycling Selection Option in ARES Commander 2023

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.

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.

Smarter DWG Drawings for BIM Projects With ARES Commander

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.
