  Dynamic blocks – Grips editing

Edit dynamic blocks inserted in a DWG drawing by other CAD software such as

  2D Constraints

Add intelligence to your drawings with the new Constraints Design Solver (CDS) from

Spatial Corp. (a DassaultSystèmes 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 makeany 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 toolbarwith 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 quicklychange its formatting and properties.

  Advanced in-place text editing

The Notes (MText) command has been improved with a new Paragraph options dialog todefine

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.


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


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

DiscardDuplicatesdeletes duplicate entities.

ExplodeBlockXexplodes blocks or tables and converts attributes in text.


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