I have used AutoCAD for over 5 years. My company uses Draftsight as an alternative of AutoCAD sometimes. It is way less expensive with …

As noted earlier, we had to find a way to compete with far larger and very competent organizations at a low cost. This meant being nimble and equally professional at the same time. It helped that we could come up the learning curve quickly.

As explained above I have been using this software for many years and for the moment I have no intention of changing it. I am satisfied even if I hope that the software continues to develop but maintaining the excellent value for money that distinguishes it. I hope that in the future the base license includes installation on two different devices instead of one. This would be really good for someone like me who has a pc in the office and another laptop.

Our company was using AutoCAD Lte 97 for years. When the switch to Windows 10 happened or maybe it was Windows 7, the old product stopped working. DraftSight offered a free solution so we started using it. Then they switched to a pay service and we thought ok. Then one or two PCs got hit with malware and required a reset and I now have learned that reinstalling SOLIDWORKS and Office is simple however it is one hundred per seat to reinstall DraftSight and I find that annoying.

Price was the main deciding factor when we first started with DraftSight. The owners were not sure we even needed a CAD software. For those of us who use it the fact that we have the features and usability of DraftSight for the price that the company owners are happy with makes us happy.

Price & features: After trying many solutions, the only one that allows us to read/modify our DWG/DXF archives reliably without using AutoCAD is DraftSight. Moreover, not to spoil anything, it is commercially competitive.
