Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We use SOLIDWORKS for 3D, and 2D for DraftSight. Most of the drawing that we received from the client or vendor, we use DraftSight to verify if it's what we needed and starts working with them. Also for the parts that we are sending out, we mostly use SOLIDWORKS to modify however some old CAD files we use DraftSight to modify.
  • Light.
  • Easy to use.
  • Functionality.
  • Limited functionality like AutoCAD.
  • Shortcuts are hard to use.
  • Easy to work with client's drawing.
  • Fast modification by not wasting engineer's time.
When you are working any 2D cad files, DraftSight is well suited. Such as working dxf, dwg files, DraftSight is my go-to file. However some times we received 3D cad files, then we are forced to use SOLIDWORKS. Also DraftSight is light but it is also lack of many features that AutoCAD offers.
