Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

I am using DraftSight to enter my initial as-built floor plans based on field measurements or traced graphics. These will then be captured for use in other systems to complete product. Or, they will be saved and sent directly to designer or architect for direct use as a DWG to complete design.
  • Providing former AutoCAD users with like commands.
  • Full functionality - soup to nuts.
  • Ease of zoom, pan.
  • Currently experiencing crashes when using certain (simple) functions. No error messages, just says Program Must Close. Forums online show this is world wide.
  • Almost too may options for input - and yet some only have command-line typing.
  • I wish there was an easer way to repeat a command without using the Enter key.
  • Helped me offer additional services to my company.
  • Greater accuracy than manual plus conversion.
Almost command by command the same as AutoCAD. Cost is better.
Better dollar value than AutoCAD for a small drafting company. Less appropriate for non-technical folks.
