Dassault may have been the first to license ARES Commander for desktop, Corel was the first to license the mobile version, ARES Touch. Corel licensed ARES five years ago, because its CorelDraw and Corel Designer users need a way to edit CAD drawings.
So, CorelCAD has links to cleanly exchange drawings with the two non-CAD packages. For example, CAD drawings are used in marketing material, technical illustrations, and photo editing. It is extensible through VSTA and LISP.
The mobile version has 25,000 users, and some users ended up buying the desktop version. No surprise, but CorelCAD 2017 is based on ARES 2017, and will be shipped on October 18 -- a month ahead of Graebert!
