Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We started using Draftsight as a substitution to Autocad some years ago when it was free. It was a great choice as it does everything we needed from Autocad for all our technical 2D drawings. Control panels, menus, and buttons have a less fancy look, but they are very intuitive, simple, and designed to be immediately recognizable. When they made it a subscription, we decided to use it paying the very affordable fees of the standard version. It is a great and stable program (although it sometimes crashes as most design programs) to use for basic interior architecture purposes. We use it also to design simple furniture, for which it is a good instrument as well.
  • 2D technical drawings
  • Interior design plans
  • Simple architecture drawings
  • Simple furniture designs
  • Interface
  • Fancy aspect
  • Sometimes it crashes
  • Great ROI respect to DWG which is too expensive for what we do
  • The 100€ yearly subscription is a fantastic value or money when your use is only 2D
  • You have a complete program, easy to use, and ready for any technical design

Do you think DraftSight delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy DraftSight again?


It is a very good program to use for 2D architecture, interior design, and furniture design simple projects, it is also very good if you have to check DWGs sometimes and you are not a professional user. For interior design, it is enough for any plan and technical drawing in two dimensions. It is very simple to use as a real good plus, we have never tried it on very complicated drawings, but we were able to work on everything we needed.
