Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

I am the sole user in our company. I am using DraftSight for design-build drawing where I show the locations of lighting and electrical components for projects. I also use it to design underground conduit and electrical panel locations for projects.
  • Very similar to AutoCAD
  • Professional is a very powerful program
  • Power trim is great for cleaning up drawings
  • There should be technical support for all users. It is very frustrating to have failures occur over and over with no help.
  • Training videos could be more detailed.
  • Image Tracer is a nice addition, but I have not been able to figure it out.
  • For the price, DraftSight is every bit as powerful as AutoCAD
It is well suited for any 2D drawing.

Evaluating DraftSight and Competitors

Yes - We were using AutoCAD. DraftSight is great AutoCAD 2D replacement because of the price point.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Prior Experience with the Product
Features for the price is a win-win.
DraftSight Professional is a great product for the price. I'm just wondering why the Attach, JPG was removed. I can still cut and paste so I can do it, just another step.
