Design News Header 2023

For professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, and construction, the selection of CAD software is a critical factor that can significantly impact productivity, collaboration, and overall design quality. Here we explore the top 10 reasons why ARES Commander, as part of the ARES Trinity of CAD Software, is the natural transition for CorelCAD users that want to keep enjoying their favorite features.

Easy Transition

Adopting a new CAD platform can be daunting due to the potential learning curve and the migration of existing workflows. Fortunately, ARES Commander facilitates an easy transition with a familiar user interface and commands. This allows CorelCAD users to quickly adapt to ARES Commander without disrupting ongoing projects or productivity.

All the Features of CorelCAD Included

ARES Commander offers a comprehensive suite of features that meets, if not exceeds, those available in CorelCAD. It ensures that users have access to all the tools they need for precise 2D drafting and 3D modeling. Users can seamlessly continue their work with the assurance that their essential features are integrated into ARES Commander.

PDF Import

PDF documents are ubiquitous in the exchange of design information. ARES Commander surpasses CorelCAD with robust PDF import capabilities, allowing users to convert PDF files into editable CAD drawings. By directly importing PDF content, users can save considerable time and reduce errors associated with manual tracing.

Tool Palettes

Customization and efficiency are vital for CAD users. ARES Commander's tool palettes provide quick access to frequently used commands, blocks, and hatches. These customizable palettes streamline the workflow, enabling users to optimize their design process more effectively than CorelCAD can provide.

Trinity Online Block Library

The ARES Trinity of CAD Software includes a vast online block library, offering thousands of predefined blocks and symbols across various industries. This feature is a significant time-saver, as users can drag and drop these resources into their drawings rather than creating them from scratch.

Revit & IFC Import + BIM Drawings Automation

For professionals working with building information modeling (BIM), ARES Commander offers superior support. It includes not only the ability to import Revit and IFC files but also tools to automate BIM drawings. This functionality makes it an ideal choice for those involved in multidisciplinary projects that require BIM integration.

Maps Service and TopoPoints Import/Export

Geographic information is crucial for planning and analysis in many projects. ARES Commander connects users to map services from within the software and supports the import and export of TopoPoints. This integration enables seamless incorporation of geographical data, which is particularly beneficial for civil engineers and landscape architects.

Modern Collaboration Features

Collaboration is at the heart of today's design process. ARES Commander's collaboration features are more advanced than those offered by CorelCAD, with options for cloud storage, Commenting Palette, and in-place editing of DWG files by multiple users in real-time, ensuring that teams can work together seamlessly regardless of their location.

Share View-Only Links

ARES Commander simplifies the sharing of designs with stakeholders by allowing users to generate view-only links. Recipients can access these links without needing a CAD software license, making it a highly efficient way to solicit feedback or approvals on design projects.

Work Anywhere, on Any Type of Device

The ARES Trinity of CAD Software ensures that users can work flexibly across desktop, mobile, and cloud platforms. Whether on a PC, Mac, or any mobile device, ARES Commander allows users to access and edit their drawings anytime, anywhere, offering an unmatched level of convenience and mobility compared to CorelCAD.

In conclusion, the shift from CorelCAD to ARES Commander within the ARES Trinity of CAD Software represents a strategic move for design professionals seeking more robust, collaborative, and flexible CAD solutions. As the industry continues to evolve, having access to the latest advancements in CAD technology is crucial.
