5.Architosh gives 4.5 for ARES Commander 2016 for Mac

Architosh, the leading Internet magazine dedicated to Mac & iOS CAD and 3D professionals and students worldwide has reviewed ARES Commander for the first time and gives 4.5 out of 5 for Mac version. It concludes “Overall, ARES Commander 2016 is a strong option for DWG-based CAD workflows, in a wide array of industries. For those who seek out AutoCAD LT, in particular, due to its lower cost, ARES 2016 should be seen as a competitive option. For those with mixed platform enterprises, especially those with Linux seats, ARES Commander actually offers the best cross-platform functional mix. For architects who seek a cost-competitive, robust 2D-oriented DWG option to compliment BIM workflows, again, ARES is a must “side-by-side” comparison with AutoCAD LT, said Anthony Frausto-Robledo, AIA, LEED AP.”
