  • Dynamic blocks – Grips editing

Edit dynamic blocks inserted in a DWG drawing by other CAD software such as AutoCAD®. Grips enables to dynamically and interactively modify the “intelligent” blocks and eventually reinsert them in the drawing.

  • 2D Constraints

Add intelligence to your drawings with the new Constraints Design Solver (CDS) from Spatial Corp. (a Dassault Systèmes company) integrated in ARES Commander. Geometric constraints help you to define selected entities that should remain parallel, perpendicular and tangent. Dimensional constraints allow you to lock a length, define a scale factor between entities or even enter a formula to define a length. After defining such constraints, the CDS solver will dynamically update your drawing when you make any modification by recalculating the incidence on the other elements.

  • Editing Tables

Click inside a Table cell or launch the command EditTableCell and you will get a toolbar with all the options to insert, resize, merge or delete cells, rows and columns.

  • Dimension palette

Create or click on a dimension and you will see a contextual toolbar to easily and quickly change its formatting and properties.

  • Advanced in-place text editing

The Notes (MText) command has been improved with a new Paragraph options dialog to define Advanced formatting just as you do in a word processor but right inside your drawings. The new Stack dialog helps you create fractions and tolerances in your text.

  • PowerTrim

Trim multiple entities by moving your mouse around – just describe a path with your mouse and ARES will trim while you move.

  • QuickModify

Use only one command to perform multiple actions on the same selection of entities: move, rotate, scale and/or copy without leaving the command.

  • Bonus tools

DiscardDuplicates deletes duplicate entities.

ExplodeBlockX explodes blocks or tables and converts attributes in text.

  • CustomPaperSize

Add or remove custom paper sizes for the ARES virtual printers in order to export to PDF, JPG, DWF and other formats.
