For Programmers: Application Programming Interfaces

The program provides you with a host of programming languages and interfaces for creating your own
functions and plug-ins:
• C/C++
• Visual Studio for Applications (VSTA)
• Delphi
• Common Object Model (COM)
• Design Runtime Extension (DRX)
• DraftSight API



You can add content from other application using OLE (object linking and embedding) objects in drawings, or through the Drawing Resource palette.

The program has a built-in LISP interpreter, as well as an IDE (integrated development environment), using
Microsoft VSTA (visual studio tools for applications), and .NET languages. The program features autoloading
of add-ins, conversion, and headers from ADS (AutoCAD development system), C++, a CFx/DRX API
including the ARES user interface functions, and the Teigha development platform from the Open Design
Alliance, Delphi, COM, and toolbar and menu macros.

ARES OEM is a stand-alone version for third-party developers with an open architecture and a wide range
of API features, including ActiveX. Graebert supports partners in building their stand-alone software and

Versions of the program are available for five operating systems — Android, iOS, Linux, MacOS, and Windows — as well as running in Web browsers.

The desktop version of the program runs on Windows, Linux, and OS X. It supports Windows 7, 8, and 10
in both 32- and 64-bit versions, and runs on any recent Windows-compatible computer, as well as OS X
