Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We use DraftSight to allow us to cut various raw materials in different patterns to meet customer needs. Each of our customers needs to have bullet resistant glass cut in order to fit different construction, military vehicle, and/or other types of products. Without DraftSight or some other type of CAD software, we wouldn't be able to fill these requirements.
  • Allows for different file types
  • Provides many different possibilities for angle intersections
  • Is user friendly and mostly intuitive
  • When not obviously intuitive, carrying out certain functions can be very difficult to find.
  • When a product is updated, some new changes are not pointed out to the user, which can make the user find it difficult to carry out actions that were easy before the update.
  • A better "Help" section would be great. Especially if it had a good search engine to find very specific actions or functions.
  • It enables us to fill customer's needs.
  • It is a relatively inexpensive software suite.
  • For the price of the software, the ROI is very significant.
  • Many other software suites that provide the same or less functionality are much more expensive.
I have not used or evaluated other CAD products. My boss did all of the work to determine which software we could use and simply told us that other software options were either more expensive or did not provide the necessary functionality to meet our customers' needs.
While we don't use all functions of DraftSight here at Global Security Glazing, the scenarios in which it is used are mostly easy to manipulate and utilize without having to go too far into the proverbial weeds to carry out. Specifically, cutting raw material glass into customer's required patterns is very well suited. This is the only thing we do with DraftSight at our organization.
