Powered by AWS’ Global IT infrastructure, ARES Kudo offers all the CAD features you came to expect to create and modify drawings in DWG or DXF format, with the additional agility to run in the Cloud. ARES Kudo integrates with your private cloud storage via WebDav or with popular cloud storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and OneDrive. Nothing to install, nothing to update, you just need a Web browser to access and edit your drawings online.


Uwe Urban, IT Manager of Nuesing explains the advantages of ARES Kudo: “Nuesing has customers in different regions of the World. With ARES Kudo we can potentially log in on any computer and access to our drawings online.
