Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We are three users currently. We use DraftSight for basic design work and for tidying up cut files after export from a 3D model.
  • Edit 2D cut files ready for CNC cutting
  • Print full-size templates to check fit before cutting
  • Mockup basic moving parts and predict interference issues
  • Needs a rotate copy function
  • Esnap features are sometimes lacking - I did notice some improvements on the last update but some items are still behind.
  • Needs an auto-rotate function to allow two parts to align perfectly after the rotate function. The way it's done currently requires the use of multiple functions and is only accurate to 1 deg.
  • The free version was better. I do not like the shift towards paid subscriptions. A one-time purchase is a far better model for the user.
Many, but it was a while ago so don't remember names other than AutoCAD. We currently use SOLIDWORKS and Delftship along with DraftSight.
In my opinion, this software is useful only for 2-dimensional drawings. This application is limited in today's manufacturing environment. Most companies require 3D models.
