ARES® Kudo

The Cloud’s most agile CAD solution for DWG viewing, sharing and editing.

With ARES Kudo your DWG drawings follow you on any device. Nothing to install, ARES Kudo runs in your Internet browser. Access your CAD files online, anywhere, any time.

Your DWG drawings follow you anywhere

ARES Kudo works like a hub for all your DWG files (other supported formats include DXF and DWT). Instead of introducing one more cloud storage service, we simply let you connect all the cloud storages that you already use.

Supported cloud storages include Box®, Dropbox®, Google Drive® or industry-specific cloud storages such as Onshape® or Trimble® Connect. ARES Kudo connects them altogether and lets you browse or search across all of them.

Nothing to install, nothing to update, you can very simply go to on any Internet browser. ARES Kudo makes it very easy to read, share and even edit your drawings on any device.

ARES Kudo brings the agility of Cloud to ARES Commander and ARES Touch

Our cloud-based solution is fully integrated with ARES Commander on your computers and ARES Touch on your smartphones and tablets. Desktop + Mobile + Cloud, the ARES Trinity of CAD combines the benefits of each platform to considerably improve your workflows.

Continuous workflow across devices and users

Drawings stored in the Cloud storages connected to ARES Kudo can be modified locally in ARES Commander or ARES Touch. Yet, modifications will be synchronized automatically with your cloud storages as soon as you save them. You can start a project in ARES Commander and continue it with ARES Touch. You may also use ARES Touch to annotate your drawings on the go, and your colleagues at the office could instantly get the update in ARES Commander.

Share your projects as a simple URL

ARES Kudo is also nicely improving collaboration with your customers and partners. ARES Kudo lets you generate a “view-only” link where external people can view your project without editing. Nothing to install, nothing to pay, nothing to update, they will just click on the link and see your DWG file in their Internet browser. Sending a view-only link is a great method to share your projects and ask for example for validation. This URL is live updated when you save any modification and becomes therefore the single source of truth for your project. No risk for mistakes and you keep control as you can close access at any time.

Create and modify DWG drawings in the Cloud

ARES Kudo is included in the subscription of ARES Commander as part of the ARES Trinity of CAD software. Subscribers have currently access to the viewing and sharing features. Editing features will be gradually released in the first half of 2018 but ARES subscribers can get immediate access by joining our Beta group.

ARES Kudo is aiming at no compromises in features to create and modify DWG drawings in the cloud. Most of the 2D CAD features of ARES Commander are available in the editing features. While you would be likely to prefer to work offline on your main computers with ARES Commander, ARES Kudo will offer a great solution to work on occasional computers.

Online CAD platform for developers

The ARES Trinity API supports C++, LISP, DCL and Qt on all three platforms: ARES Commander (Windows, Mac and Linux), ARES Touch (Android and iOS) and ARES Kudo (Cloud). Developers will therefore find an easy path to migrate code initially created for Windows-based applications to Cloud and Mobile. With such API Graebert aims also at offering developers a very cost-effective programming environment to maintain the same core features on multiple platforms.

Additionally, ARES Kudo supports more cloud-specific programming interfaces such as Java Script and WT. These languages will in particular be of interest for new companies starting directly with cloud-based solutions.
