Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We view, make changes to, and create 2D drawings with DraftSight.
  • Cost-effective
  • Can use and save documents to a usable DWG format
  • New versions of DraftSight change (eliminate) features that I like to use.
  • Customer Service is non-existent so issues cannot be resolved.
  • Blogs are not a solution to customer service questions.
We sued Cadopia in the past Draftsight is much better.
DraftSight is highly functional in what we use it for. We use it more as a drawing editor than a drawing creator.

Using DraftSight

4 - Sales and Engineering
We do not have any inside people supporting Draftsight
  • Editing Existing Drawings
  • Viewing Existing Drawings
  • Creating small drawings

Evaluating DraftSight and Competitors

Yes - Cadopia. I think the program became non-functional.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability

DraftSight Support

Terrible. We have 2 users that cannot get support for getting draftsight to work on their computers. We will not renew if we are paying for something that does not run on our computers.
Good followup
Slow Resolution
Less knowledgeable
Problems left unsolved
Not kept informed
Escalation required
Difficult to get immediate help
Need to explain problems multiple times
Support doesn't seem to care
Slow Initial Response
Probably not. This is left up to individual user.
