Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

DraftSight is primarily used by our electrical engineering team to specify custom cables and wiring harnesses. These are ultimately used to quote and order both prototype and production quantities from various suppliers. These drawings are used in conjunction with SolidWorks drawings from our engineering team.
  • Easy to edit.
  • Good formatting options.
  • Clean and simple.
  • Annoying renewal process.
  • Not the cheapest option.
  • Doesn't integrate with our revision management system.
  • Decreased print revision time.
  • Increased efficiency in supplier communication.
We didn't investigate alternatives, this was a software package utilized by previous employees at our company that spoke highly of it.
For our needs (specifying cables and wiring harnesses up to ~10 wires) it's quick and easy to use. I expect more complex solutions may have more difficulty, but for simpler integrations where speed and simplicity are required it's excellent. I find the price just a bit high for the functionality, but it's by no means an expensive software.
