Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We use it for patent Illustration, in our individual department.
  • Quick illustrations.
  • Has an easy to use functionality.
  • The automatic save function saves lives.
  • It crashes more in 2019 than in the previous versions.
  • You can't append an arc without first drawing an arc, even if you've opened a document with arcs/ lines in it.
  • Editing ellipses does not always act as expected.
  • Helps create illustrations quickly.
  • Gets ideas on paper quickly.
  • Has given us faster lead times.
I don't really have experience with similar products, other than SOLIDWORKS, which I use completely differently.
Well suited for non-constrained, illustrative drawings. Less appropriate for 3D modeling.
