Desktop, Mobile and Cloud: the Trinity of CAD

At Graebert we noticed our customers own now an increasing number of computers and mobiles devices. Naturally, they want to be able to work from all these devices. Why should they pay a license for each? We see very strong synergies in a highly integrated collaboration between all your devices.

That’s why we included ARES Touch and ARES Kudo¹ in the subscription of ARES Commander. With Graebert’s unrivaled Trinity concept, the same user can work with his license from any computer or mobile device:

ARES Commander for Windows, macOS and Linux: Ideal for heavy work at the office or at home because of a higher computing power and larger screen.
ARES Touch can be installed at no additional cost on ALL your Android and iOS devices (same user account). It works also offline as you can’t always rely on Internet when you are on the go.
-Your smartphone fits into your pocket and follows you everywhere. It is the perfect companion to quickly read a drawing shared from the Cloud, received by email or saved locally on the device. You may further comment and review a drawing on site.
-Your tablet or phablet offers a larger screen. Very easy to carry in one hand, it can be switched on in seconds. As a result it is the perfect device to make a presentation or replace printed paper. It is also very convenient to create or modify drawings on the go.
DWG drawings can be shared and synchronized between ARES Commander and ARES Touch + any other CAD software via Dropbox, Box, iCloud or Google Drive but also simply by email or USB cable.

The most advanced CAD solution ever seen on iOS and Android


We believe you deserve much more than a viewer with limited editing capabilities on your mobile devices. You will probably use computers, smartphones and tablets for different tasks but should not be limited in features.

Some of the key features of ARES Touch include:

Native DWG support: We use .dwg as our main format. You can create and modify drawings in this popular format. No import nor export, you keep the highest compatibility.
The natural extension of your favorite CAD software: We built an intuitive touch user interface. It has been redesigned for touch but is very intuitive for any CAD user.
High precision: Discover in our video how the loupe, entity snap, tracking and coordinates input help you to draw with the same precision as on the desktop.
Advanced annotation tools: A full set of dimensioning tools and unique tools designed for mobile such as Picture Note (insert picture from camera with comments), Voice Note, Pack & share…
150+ commands: The most complete app ever seen for mobile. Get all the power to create and modify your drawings on the go.
Advanced programming interface: ARES Touch includes a C++, Lisp, Tx and DCL API. It makes it very easy to migrate applications developed for the desktop.

What the press says

"ARES Touch is, in my opinion, the most advanced mobile CAD app today."

Ralph Grabowski, upFront.eZine, July 7, 2015

"The newly updated ARES Touch is just one facet of Graebert’s mission to make full-featured CAD available on every type of platform."

Cyrena Respini-Irwin, Cadalyst, November 4, 2015

"ARES Touch for Android is currently the most featured CAD solution for DWG editing on tablets and smartphones."

Anthony Frausto-Robledo, Architosh, October 7, 2015

"ARES Touch. This is the only mobile CAD program that endeavors to pack in the most complete set of drawing and editing functions on a tablet. Not only is it command-rich, but it hosts third-party customization, something not even Autodesk has attempted."

Ralph Grabowski, WorldCAD Access, October 10, 2015
