Overall Satisfaction with DraftSight

Draftsight is the go-to software we use when editing our .dwg and .dwt files. It allows easy transferability between these files and our survey software through which the bulk of our onsite work takes place, but its real advantage over other more expensive CAD programs is its intuitive interface, which makes training new users easy. Add to that its customizable desktop and simple to use functions and regular users of AutoCAD feel very comfortable migrating over to it.

Quick alterations to existing DWGs are a snap with Draftsight. Our company doesn't use this software for drawing buildings from scratch but instead, we use a specialty survey-based software to export to DWT. The translation is buggy so using Draftsight to edit the file is essential to providing the exact product our clients want.
Having previous experience with AutoCAD I would also give this program a thumbs up recommending it to someone new to CAD and wanting a solid alternative to more expensive programs. Draftsight is less suited to someone wanting to create 3D models. I would suggest they look at other Solidworks packages for that.
