the best alternative to autocad

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Vorteile:

What I like most about the program is that for the little money the license costs you have access to a very complete CAD drawing assistant. The functionalities and tools are very well developed and the interface is quite accessible if you are used to working in similar programs.

Nachteile:

Perhaps what I like least about the program is that it uses a lot of RAM, especially in complex drawings with a lot of shading.I also found it a little complicated to be able to print several sheets at the same time from the plotter.I would really like it if more tutorials were included on their official website, since they are sometimes difficult to find.

DRAFTSIGHT IS A GREAT TOOL

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Easy to use and great tool sets. My go to choice for CAD software now.

Vorteile:

I love the ease of use when transition between Draftsight and Autocad, the command structure is very similar and the drawing output is compatible. When I am working from home I have purchased a Draftsight license for odd drawings and projects, as I could not justify the cost of Autocad for occasional use. I now prefer the Draftsight tool over Autocad.

Nachteile:

I was using a freeware version for a number of years, this disappeared and when I tried to log in I needed to purchase. As an occasional part time user (from home) I was trying not to purchase, however the cost is negligible in the end.

Runs Terrible and Crashes Constantly with Zero Customer Support

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: All of the Draftsight Features work well and the Software serves my design needs except for the Constant Crashing Issue ... Dassault Systems Should have remedied this issue 1 year ago when it first showed up ... The Crashing started with the 2019 version

Vorteile:

Price and Similarity to AutoCAD with the ability to use DWG files

Nachteile:

Costs me So Much Wasted time due to Constantly crashing and No Solutions seem to be available except and endless Sea of on Line Suggestions that do not work ... Complete Lack of Real Customer Support ... You would think that Remedy would happen as the Software was updated but so Far no Solutions have come ... The Software can not handle any internet connection and especially Crashes when the Snap Setting is turned on ... The Crashes seem to relate to the Video Card and Ram Use ... In my Case I am running on a HP 8770 W Elite Book with 16 Gig of RAM ...

DraftSight

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Generally, it's not expensive. Doesn't have big size of file. Easy to download and to install.

Vorteile:

It's ok replacement for AutoCAD. Similar command as CAD. Easy to make 2d drawing and convert.

Nachteile:

Not too much friendly for new users. It's not easy to print some part from drawing.

For a free software, it's quite a deal.

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Excellent software. They tried hard to mimic autocad and did a great job with it.

Vorteile:

Firstly, it's free. So that's awesome. When I lost my access to autocad years ago, I had a panic moment and was sent scrambling for another cheaper software license. I happened upon draftsight and everything changed

Nachteile:

Some of their snap functions are a bit off. They dont have quite the same features as the super expensive (compared to draftsight)autocad.

does great 2D drafting

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: this was one of two 2D drafting programs that i found. i installed both of them, and actually use both of them, depending on the task at hand. draftsight is very easy to use, and i use it most of the time. the only time i use the other software is when i need some feature that draftsight just doesn't have.

Vorteile:

it does everything i want it do to, and it's very easy to use. it has a lot of really good features, and you can create drawings very quickly. much easier than some other alternatives

Nachteile:

i can't really say there is anything i don't like. i needed a good, versatile 2D drafting program, and this was one of two that i found.

customer support

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Worked great for the year i paid for it, and then after the paid renewal would not accept the serial number DraftSight sent to my email. the system shut down after the end of my original subscription. program will not accept the new serial number till next year (2109) because it says i've already registered. but the program doesn't work and there is NO CUSTOMER support for the professional version even with a service number for the problem. I downloaded Autocad lt. and will not go back to Draftshight due to no customer support and a major waste of time trying to get it fix.

Vorteile:

good software, works well easy to use base on the similarity of autocad, would recommend it it wasn't for lack of support.

Nachteile:

terrible customer support. after buying the one year subscription and renewing the product and getting a serial number to enter, the program stop working at the end of my original subscription. contacted (customer service) NO HELP AT ALL. Referred me to the general web site. i had a project that i was in the middle of and it cost me money and time when it stop working. I now wont recommend it and going to autocad lt.

DraftSgiht has common user interface on 2D makes you more efficient.

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It's really good to see familiar things from AutoCAD for learning this program quickly.

Vorteile:

It has similar functions to AutoCAD, so it makes to learning this program quickly when you switch from AutoCAD to DraftSight. User interface is very common and comprehensible.

Nachteile:

3D functions are not good as other 3D programs.. It's hard to learn it. Program crash randomly, it should be improved.

Excellent 2D Mechanical Application

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Uses a common interface and commands that pretty much any designer can master in a quick period of time. Offered in a free version up until this year.

Nachteile:

Users must re-register on a regular basis to use the free version. Some stripped functionality in free version. Both issues would be resolved by purchasing a paid license which at last glance was still much cheaper than competitor's tools.

Draftsight is the AutoCAD clone you've been looking for.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I'm a 3D animator and I need a CAD program to prep 2D drawings for export into my 3D software. Nothing fancy, but effective, and preferably inexpensive. Draftsight fits the bill perfectly. I don't even mind that there's no free version anymore. It's well worth the price compared to the alternatives.

Vorteile:

Although Draftsight has it's own typed-in command structure, AutoCAD commands all work here too, not like some other CAD programs I've tried. So if you have years worth of habitual keystrokes burned into your mind like I do, then you'll feel right at home here. It reminds me of AutoCAD from about version 2000 or so, which frankly is all I ever need. Until recently, it came in a free version.

Nachteile:

It has occasionally been a bit buggy, but the latest version is quite stable. Printing to scale and with proper lineweights is not as intuitive as I'd like it to be. Probably just different enough from AutoCAD that it confuses me a bit.

Easy 2D tool when using Dassault Systemes software

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Basic 2D software, if you use Solidworks it can be very helpful otherwise look for other options.

Vorteile:

You can import drawings to Solidworks 3D CAD software with many properties without failing to recognize entities.

Nachteile:

The price is a little bit high for the resources it includes.

Very buggy piece of software

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It was good till 2017. Then it become buggy. And after December 2019 it won't be free any more...

Vorteile:

Draftsight is very easy to use cad software.

Nachteile:

Since 2017 each new version of the draftsight is more and more buggy. Even such a simple thing like joining two arcs often doesn't work.

Low cost alternative to other CAD

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: The learning curve is very smooth, you can almost start drawing from the beginning

Vorteile:

It's a low cost CAD, but full of features and very easy to use. You can do almost anything a medium user needs to do.

Nachteile:

Until december 2019 it was free software, now it's not free anymore, anyway the price is very low compared to other CADs

Probably the best CAD software for GNU/Linux (if you only need 2D drawings)

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: As an architect that uses GNU/Linux I have been struggling to find a good piece of software for CAD drawing, and only Draftsight has been able to fulfill my needs (Except by the fact that it is not possible to work with 3D).

Vorteile:

* Open and saves dwg files without problems * Multi-plattform software (Windows, Mac, and GNU/Linux) * Feature rich * Known interface for AutoCAD users: you can use GUI + CLI. For those using command line, most commands are exactly the same as AutoCAD, so transitioning from there is extremely easy * Price. Even free version is great for most user cases

Nachteile:

* It just works for 2 Dimension drawings, which may be a big limitation for some, yet nothing relevant for others. * Printing is slightly more cumbersome than printing in AutoCAD (and there's no option to print in batches)

Awesome free CAD 2D software

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I used Draftsight to design 2D drawings. It worked great when creating 2D dimensions and annotations in the drawings, you can edit filling of closed lines, types of lines and 2D dimensions. I also created a program template (in another software) where you input some dimensions and it creates a .txt file to input in draftsight and create a drawing.

Vorteile:

Draftsight works very well and is very intuitive to use, it allows you to open and edit dwg dxf and other 2D formats. Working with layers helps you organize complex drawings It's great that you can use text commands for almost every feature available, this gives you other possibilities (i.e. create a txt with the commands and input this in draftsight).

Nachteile:

Editing existing features is not as easy as in other CAD softwares. The GUI is too complex and outdated

This is very helpful to carry out my drafting of 2 D drawing & edit as per my requirements.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: The Below are benefits from this software.
1. User friendly for drafting and editing the drawing.
2. Less Economical for free access for 2D version.
3. Take less time for open and close the drawing.
4. Easy to operate the commands.
5, Very useful for the engineers to view the drawings and edit.

Vorteile:

Easy to Edit the drawing and Friendly to operate the commands. This software is very useful for my day to day drafting activities.

Nachteile:

It takes more time to open and process the drawing. The process time can be reduced for faster working. But overall it is good drafting software in the market less cost economical.

Good for Small scale drawing projects --- until it stops working

3,0 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: Was great when it was workingWished they could go easy on the security to users who purchased it legally. Your security shouldn't be so strict that it hinders legitimate users from using the product --- at all

Vorteile:

Clone commandsAnyone familiar with AutoCad can simply use this

Nachteile:

The fact that it stops working unpredictablyI was using this only very occasionally to mark up drawings or tune up designsHowever after having worked on the same machine for years, it did stop working (or activating) a few timesB had bought a lifetime copy, but sadly it seems to check with their servers occasionally and lock me outAt the moment I haven't used it for three years and have contacted support, but feel that it has been blocked by them. I've reinstalled my copy on the same and other machines

Inexpensive CAD Program for the Occassional User

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I only use DraftSight when I need to create a professional-looking, dimensioned drawing. My drawings are pretty simple...from dimensioned floor plans to 2D parts. DraftSight is perfect for me.

Vorteile:

Because I only need a CAD program occasionally when I am working on a project, I was looking for a low cost, easy to learn, basic system. DraftSight met those needs.

Nachteile:

I would have liked to see a few more tutorial lessons on the use of the program. The occasional user could benefit from a quick refresher video.

Crashes all the time - It does not work

1,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The software doesn't work. They release a version that was broken and I used the free trial of that version not knowing it was broken. I ran it on a i7, 16GB RAM and RTX30 series (powerful computer) but the application was crashing constantly. I lost unsaved work and wasted hours restarting the application, which did cost me a few hundred dollars on billable hours. I sent errors logs, which helped them to identify the issue that they claimed it is now resolved in DraftSight 2022 SP1. Technical support seems to be overseas with broken English and difficulty to read English. After 14 days, they said there is hotfix "DraftSight memory saturation hotfix" that could solve the problem. I asked for a trial license to try the fix but it was declined. Ask [SENSITIVE CONTENT] for details.
In summary, they released a broken version, I helped to fix by providing feedback and error logs. They claimed it is fixed but I can't test it.

Vorteile:

Low price and compatibility with CAD files

Nachteile:

It doesn't work. It crashes all the time. Terrible technical support

Good software

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I use this program to check plans and take basic measurements. Working in constrution, this is a must.

Vorteile:

Free software to open .CAD files. Its not the most user friendly environment but then again, if you want to open Autocad files you need to have some knowledge. You can do all the things you can do in the Autocad.

Nachteile:

A little slow and you need to know what you are doing or else you will have a hard time.
