Draftsight is quite user friendly. There are multiple places to get tutorial videos and explanations for learning. Finding people with Structural Steel Detailing experience can be difficult so we, under most circumstances, found hiring interns and teaching them the structural steel industry to be beneficial.

The person who uses draftsight is an architect graduated from the University of Florence (Italy). The skills for doing architectural design are obtained only through a degree program. The skills to use the software are the same as those needed to use Autodesk autocad, a tool widely used in Italian universities and on which students are trained in the competence of computer-assisted design.

Normally it is just to install and it is a set it and forget it when it works. When you need to uninstall because a machine crashes it is a nightmare and the only easy solution is to pay another hundred dollars per machine. I find that to be annoying and frustrating.

The company I work for is very small, and as such we do not have dedicated support people for any software we use. To date, there has not been a need for such people to support DraftSight. It has been working well on the computers I use, and I haven't run into any major problems with it.
