Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We use DraftSight daily to convert the drawings supplied by our customers and/or made by ourselves to DXF files. The setup of DraftSight is ideal for us as we also work with SOLIDWORKS. The conversion is very easy. The program is used in several places in our production at the machines on site. DraftSight has a clear structure in terms of menus.

We are very happy with this program, and can heartily recommend it.

  • Conversion DWG to DXF
  • Many tools to make measurements in the drawings
  • A more advanced drawing toolbar ( the ability to choose more shapes).
  • I don't have any [more] examples of areas where DraftSight has room for improvement. DraftSight is already very complete.
  • The cost of the program is very low.
  • Anybody who can works with AutoCAD, can also work with DraftSight.
AutoCAD is a great product, but it is very expensive to buy. We do use DraftSight because it is not very expensive. It is easy to learn.
We already use SOLIDWORKS and these to programs work great together.
DraftSight is well suited for implementation in our plant. We can make very simple measurements in the drawings we receive from our customers. Also, it is very easy to use copy to paste to our SOLIDWORKS program. With this option we can modify or make 3D samples to let our customers [know] what the finished product would look like.
