Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

DraftSight is currently used by many individuals in our company, both in the Engineering department and adjacent departments. It handles all the tasks we need it to do with regards to .dwg and .dxf files, from individual component drawings to plant layouts. DraftSight is a fully functional 2D drawing tool.

Pros

  • Accessing .dwg/.dxf files.
  • Editing .dwg/.dxf files.
  • Saving .dwg/.dxf files.
  • Simplicity.

Cons

  • The free version is going away in 2019.
  • Some commands are difficult to find.
  • It's a better ROI than full-blown AutoCAD.
For my purposes, DraftSight has all the capabilities of AutoCAD at a far less cost.
Well suited to the occasional .dwg/.dxf user. Probably doesn't make sense for a casual view-only user.
