Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

Used as an alternative to cad by myself only at the moment. I use it to draw and size solutions for my customers and check our own aluminum extrusion sizes to ensure our products will fit together. I do know that a couple of my colleagues used to use the free version before it was changed. They now rely heavily on our design department when needed.
  • Easy to use
  • Priced well
  • Performs well
  • Support
  • Regular tips on functions would be great
  • It makes my work life easier
  • It helps me find solutions for my customers and keep them happy, and happy customers will come back.

DraftSight is much easier to use, as I really didn't get along with SketchUp. As it is so similar to cad, I am able to find solutions and then discuss [them] with my design department. This makes the production process much smoother and easier, and we can show the production team how we envisage this working.
I use it nearly every day to find solutions and size materials. Often my customers want something we are unsure we can achieve, so I use DraftSight to see if I can find a solution for them. Doing so, saves the very valuable time of my design department, as I can show them how I think we can achieve what the customer wants.
