BIM and CAD are two processes often run in parallel, following up or iterating upon each other – yet sometimes painfully disconnected, resulting in time-consuming manual rework of existing CAD drawings, e.g., when dimensions of a project change or the BIM Model gets updated in details.

Join our keynote to learn how ARES Commander can help you automate the production of 2D drawings for you BIM projects:

  • Import Revit and IFC files
  • NEW Support for Revit 2022 format
  • Extract 2D floorplans, elevations and sections in DWG format
  • Draw and add additional detail or content on top of the geometry imported from the BIM project
  • Keep associativity between DWG drawings and BIM projects to refresh the geometry in the drawings when the BIM project is modified
  • Export BIM information into tables or to Excel
  • NEW BIM Material Mapper to configure the style of drawing entities based on their material (e.g. hatch patterns for each type of wall)
  • NEW Further automate 2D drawings with labels and dimensions that stay connected with the BIM information

Key takeaways for this technical keynote

  • Enable CAD users to work with BIM: Access the information of BIM objects while working on the DWG drawings
  • Fix the broken workflow between BIM and CAD: Smarter CAD drawings whose geometry can be updated when the BIM project is modified
  • Automate the production of DWG drawings for your BIM projects: Leverage the geometry and information already contained in the BIM project
  • Make the most of your budget: ARES Commander only costs a fraction of the price of AutoCAD and can be purchased as Perpetual, Network or Term licenses
