ARES Commander

ARES Commander

ARES Commander offers you all the features you need to create or modify DWG drawings in 2D or 3D in a productivity-driven environment. Keep using your laptops and/or computers for the heavy work as usual. Software will be fully installed on your computer and you can work even when there is no Internet.

ARES Touch

ARES Touch

ARES Touch is a full-featured Mobile CAD version supporting Android smartphones / tablets as well as iPads / iPhones. It comes included with ARES Trinity of CAD license and makes the perfect companion, when you are out of office, but need to keep your drawings and your drafting tools close to you.

ARES Kudo

ARES Kudo

ARES Kudo is the most agile web based tool for your DWG drawings, allowing you to work on any device with support for most browsers. Nothing to install, you just need an Internet browser to access, share and modify your CAD files online, anywhere, anytime.

ARES Map

ARES Map

ARES® Map™ as a hybrid solution is bringing together the intelligence of GIS contents and a full-featured DWG-based CAD system. Maps and floorplans created with ARES Map are saved natively in DWG but can also contain smart GIS-enabled information associated to the entities

API Support

The ARES Trinity API supports C++, LISP and DCL on all three platforms. Developers will therefore find an easy path to migrate code initially created for Windows-based applications to Cloud and Mobile. Support for various programming languages including C++, Tx, lisp, VSTA, DCL, Visual Studio, COM, Active X.

Convenient & Reliable

The same user can work from up to 2 computers simultaneously and even log out to work from other computers. You may even use computers under different operating systems. You also get a 1 year subscription for ARES Touch and ARES Kudo. The license includes a 1-year subscription to receive all the updates as well as access to our Support Desk via email. Upon expiration you are free to renew your support agreement or withdraw.

  • View or share your drawing online

    View or share your drawing online

    With ARES Kudo you can generate a View-only link to share it with your contacts. It is a simple URL they can click on to see your file online. It is a great method to ask for comment or validation. The live URL is updated whenever you make any modification. It becomes the single source of truth of your project. It saves you also the time to generate a PDF version and time associated with sharing each modification. Unlike a file sent by email, you get to keep full control when you share a View-only link. Your contacts cannot edit your file and you can cut access at any time.
  • Flexibility

    Flexibility

    A complete set of 2D design and annotation tools for tablets and smartphones Ability to add Picture Notes and Voice Notes – Annotate any drawing by taking an image or recording audio to share with colleagues at the office
  • Leverage the intelligence of BIM

    Leverage the intelligence of BIM

    With ARES Commander you can import and view Revit and IFC files, but most interestingly you can extract 2D drawings from them, extract the BIM information into tables and draw additional CAD details on top of the geometry acquired from the BIM project.
  • Redefine Base Point of a Block

    Redefine Base Point of a Block

    Change the base point of a block in your drawing, without exploding it. The new _REDEFINEBASEPOINT command helps you to set a new base point for the blocks. The new base point will apply to the selected block but also to any previous or future insertion. This avoids for example to explode and recreate the block before replacing it.
  • Block Attributes Manager

    Block Attributes Manager

    Edit and reorganize Block Attributes properties within a simple dialog. The new Block Attributes Manager (BAM) lets you redefine the attributes definitions of a block in a very intuitive way. You may define if an attribute is visible or not, change the order, the invites, default values and more parameters, directly from a comprehensive dialog.
  • 3D Solids Editing with Grips and Properties Palette

    3D Solids Editing with Grips and Properties Palette

    Use grips and properties palette to modify 3D solid primitives. When selecting 3D solid primitives such as a box or a cylinder you will see new grips that allow you to edit directly the dimensions of the solid. You may also give a direction with your mouse and enter a fixed value with the Quick Input. Alternatively you may change the shape by editing the variables in the properties palette.
  • Dynamic Custom Coordinate System (CCS)

    Dynamic Custom Coordinate System (CCS)

    Enable the Dynamic CCS to automatically align the coordinate system to the face you are editing. The Dynamic CCS can be turned on or off from a toggle in the bottom of the User Interface or by pressing F6. When enabled the CCS is automatically changing as you fly over a surface.
  • Create 2D spirals and 3D helices

    Create 2D spirals and 3D helices

    The HELIX is a new entity that can be used in 2D to create spirals or in 3D to create helices. You may further use an HELIX as an extrusion path and create complex shapes such as bolt threads, circular stairs or ramps.
  • Formulas in Tables and Export to Excel

    Formulas in Tables and Export to Excel

    Use formulas in tables without leaving your drawings and improve workflows with Microsoft Excel® with import/export features. When you select a table you will now see a contextual ribbon allowing to insert formulas such as the sum or average of a column or equations. You may also use Paste selected to copy a table from Excel or use the new _EXPORTTABLE command to export a table in your drawing to a .csv file that can be further used in Excel or other spreadsheets.
  • View or share your drawing online
