Features

Read and modify DWG 2018 format:- ARES Commander is now able to read the new DWG format and keeps offering therefore an unrivaled compatibility

Cloud Storages Palette:- Connect ARES Commander with your Cloud Storage services and ARES Kudo will synchronize your modifications

With this feature you can turn on and off a link that can be shared to view your file online, for free, without any install. The link is live updated when you modify the drawing and is therefore always up-to-date. When needed you can also close access at any time.

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.

 

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.

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:- 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.

You may now select entities and move them with the arrows of your keyboard by an increment that can be adjusted in the options. This helps to adjust the position of entities in an interactive way.

Polylines Editing Improvements:- New options in the command EDITPOLYLINE offer an increased productivity in the edition of polylines. You may convert an arc segment into a line and vice-versa, you may also add a vertex to the midpoint of a segment and change its position. Other new options include Taper and Reverse.

Advanced PDF to DWG conversion:- Besides converting or batch-processing your PDF files into DWG files, ARES Commander offers now the option to recover the layers organization and names but also to maintain the LineStyle and LineWeight of entities.
