Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

We use DraftSight for technical drawings to be used in our job travelers and work instructions. DraftSight provides an easy and flexible way for engineers to highlight the technical aspects of a job and present it in an easy-to-follow format within the work instructions that our operators use to perform their duties daily. The use of DraftSight is limited to our engineering department.
  • Easy to create 2D drawings
  • Easy to add notes for increased clarity
  • Less computer resources needed than something like SOLIDWORKS
  • Could be a little more intuitive. Many functions that I am pretty sure are possible but I haven't figured out yet.
  • Easier to implement layers in a drawing
  • An introductory walkthrough or tutorial to serve as a guide when starting out
  • 2D drawing capability
  • Ease of adding notes and changing text color, size, etc.
  • Ease of converting a drawing to PDF
  • Increased productivity for engineers creating work instructions
  • Increased clarity of technical instructions to operators
  • High learning curve for engineers who are new to using DraftSight

DraftSight is well suited for times when a technical drawing is necessary (such as when creating work instructions for a job) but a 3D model of a part is either unavailable or unnecessary. Completing the same task with something like SOLIDWORKS, while possible, would take more time and extra resources. DraftSight wouldn't be the best software to use when there is a task that involves 3D modeling.
