Berlin-based Graebert™ GmbH www.graebert.com – the pioneer in developing high-performance CAD solutions across desktop, mobile and cloud – has recently announced immediate worldwide availability in the Google® Play® store of ARES® Touch, the most advanced DWG-compatible mobile CAD solution for Google Android®.
A true CAD solution
Available in 14 languages, ARES Touch (previously only available directly from Graebert) is now publicly downloadable from the Google Play Store. ARES Touch offers 3 user modes (View-only – Simple – Full) – of which 2 are available for free usage.
The free features are great for file viewing and simple annotation, with a full-set of dimensioning and sharing tools. A valid ARES Commander subscription unlocks a wide range of premium features.
Premium features available in “Full mode” include:
Picture Note: Take pictures with your mobile devices to enhance your DWG drawings, ARES Touch will reference the picture with a symbol calling the image when you tap on it.
Quick Modify: Copy, Move, Rotate and Scale a selection of elements
Drawing features: lines, polylines, circles, arcs, ellipses, splines, points, hatches
Editing features: Split, weld, trim, extend, align, offset, fillet, chamfer and more
Voice Note: Insert a comment by recording your voice
Blocks: insertion and creation
API support: C++ and Lisp APIs to add custom commands – the C++ and Lisp API of ARES Touch offers an easy way for developers willing to reuse code initially created for the desktop. They can use ARES Touch as their mobile CAD platform without in-depth Android experience and with access to the same complete set of desktop CAD tools
The premium features are free to try for the first 30 days. After the free trial, users will be offered the choice between activating the full product or continuing to use the app free but without the premium features.
It is part of Graebert’s unique “cross-device CAD experience”, allowing the user to seamlessly work on CAD drawings across all computer and mobile platforms. The same product key enables both ARES Commander on the desktop as well as ARES Touch on Android devices. The cost for ARES Touch’s premium features is included as part of the annual subscription of ARES Commander. Users are invited to purchase the combo ARES Commander + ARES Touch from Graebert’s e-store or resellers.
After one year, users are free to renew the subscription which also includes access to a dedicated tech-support hotline, upgrades and services such as LicenseToGo. For more information about ARES Touch, visit www.graebert.com/
