Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

Used in developing and manufacturing electronic control systems for various industry sectors. We needed a low-cost solution that could import and export CAD drawings from various sources including parts suppliers, clients, and sub-contractors. DraftSight has performed well both in its free-to-try form and in the pay-as-you-go model. One criticism of DraftSight for small firms is the lack of flexibility in having one license usable on multiple computers. Small users often need to do development at the office on a desktop and still need to use the software in the field for changes or doing "as-built" modifications.
  • Works smoothly on ordinary laptops.
  • Being able to see line weights on screen without going to the print preview.
  • Previously used LibreCad which worked very well until the user needed help. Being a crowdsourced product, there was no particular path to help. Also, only worked in DXF so was not directly compatible with most clients.
