Dassault Systemes licenses ARES from Graebert, changes some of its functions, and renames it DraftSight. It has worked with Graebert since 2010, and is finding that the 2D side is exploding. Dassault itself is focusing on cloud-based CAD but also desktop-based CAD. And so products by Graebert fit into this.
DraftSight has a G-code module, which is needed to communicate with computer-controlled machines.
DraftSight Floorplanning works with smartphones that have 3D scanners to scan the world, turn it into a point cloud, and then into DWG. Import that into DraftSight as planes and surfaces.
Geovia is integrated with DraftSight to record mining. Delmia is integrated with DraftSight to document yacht design and manufacturing.
DraftSight 2018 is available today for download with the enhancements from ARES 2018, but also adds smart dimensioning that adjusts dimension placement, plus additional DraftSight-only functions.
Naturally, DraftSight's purpose is also to tempt users to Solidworks.
Dassault is assessing Kudo and Touch, and at some point in the future will offer tablet and browser-based CAD, along with verticals.
