ARES® Kudo - Online CAD for DWG Editing

The Cloud’s most agile CAD solution for DWG viewing, sharing and editing

ARES Kudo is the first full-featured CAD solution to read, create, share and modify DWG or DXF drawings online. Nothing to install, it runs in your Internet browser and your files follow you on any device. It includes all the CAD features you came to expect to create and modify drawings in 2D with the additional agility to run in an Internet browser.

Your DWG drawings follow you anywhere

ARES Kudo works like a hub for all your DWG files (other supported formats include DXF and DWT). Instead of introducing one more cloud storage service, we simply let you connect all the cloud storages that you already use.

Supported cloud storages include Box®, Dropbox®, Google Drive® or industry-specific cloud storages such as Onshape® or Trimble® Connect. ARES Kudo connects them altogether and lets you browse or search across all of them.

Nothing to install, nothing to update, you can very simply go to on any Internet browser. ARES Kudo makes it very easy to read, share and even edit your drawings on any device.

Create and modify DWG drawings in the Cloud

ARES Kudo is included in the subscription of ARES Commander as part of the ARES Trinity of CAD Software. Bringing a full-featured DWG-editing solution into your browser, ARES Kudo allows you to view, present, edit and share your work anywhere without the hassle of installs and upgrades.

ARES Kudo is aiming at no compromises in features to create and modify DWG drawings in the cloud. While you would be likely to prefer to work offline on your main computers with ARES Commander, ARES Kudo will offer a great solution to work on occasional computers.

ARES Kudo brings the agility of Cloud to ARES Commander and ARES Touch

Our cloud-based solution is fully integrated with ARES Commander on your computers and ARES Touch on your smartphones and tablets. Desktop + Mobile + Cloud, the ARES Trinity of CAD Software combines the benefits of each platform to considerably improve your workflows.

Continuous workflow across devices and users

Drawings stored in the Cloud storage services connected to ARES Kudo can be modified locally in ARES Commander or ARES Touch. Yet, modifications will be synchronized automatically as soon as you save them. You can start a project in ARES Commander and continue it with ARES Touch or ARES Kudo. You may also use ARES Touch to annotate your drawings on the go, and your colleagues at the office could instantly get the update in ARES Commander.

Share your projects as a simple URL

ARES Kudo is also nicely improving collaboration with your customers and partners. ARES Kudo lets you generate a “view-only” link where external people can view your project without editing. Nothing to install, nothing to pay, nothing to update, they will just click on the link and see your DWG file in their Internet browser. Sending a view-only link is a great method to share your projects and ask for example for validation. This URL is live updated when you save any modification and becomes therefore the single source of truth for your project. No risk for mistakes and you keep control as you can close access at any time.

Online CAD platform for developers

The ARES Trinity API supports C++, LISP, DCL and Qt on all three platforms: ARES Commander (Windows, Mac and Linux), ARES Touch (Android and iOS) and ARES Kudo (Cloud). Developers will therefore find an easy path to migrate code initially created for Windows-based applications to Cloud and Mobile. With such API Graebert aims also at offering developers a very cost-effective programming environment to maintain the same core features on multiple platforms.

Additionally, ARES Kudo supports more cloud-specific programming interfaces such as Java Script and WT. These languages will in particular be of interest for new companies starting directly with cloud-based solutions.
