Just a correction to one of the authors statements above. Draft sight Professional is available as a single seat Purchase direct from Dassault Systemes Website. It is only the Draft sight Enterprise version that requires a Minimum five seat purchase.

Ralph Grabowski

This is a recent change. Until about a month ago, the Pro version was the Enterprise version: minimum purchase of 5 seats from a dealer. Last month, the Pro version was downgraded in status to make it more compatible with SMBs: can purchase only one license online.

Interesting post. How about 3d; does DraftSight Pro have any 3d tools and/or functionality?

Ralph Grabowski

It can view 3D models, but has a limited ability to create 3D, because it is not supposed to compete with Solidworks.

Our firm does architectural design of commercial buildings. We currently use autocad release 2000 with architectural desktop. architectural desktop allows us to draw all kinds of walls and the ability to drop in doors and windows. If you are familiar with architectural desktop, I wonder if your program has similar capabilities?

David Stallings

I have also been looking into ProgeCAD. I wonder if it has similar capabilities to autocad architectural desktop?

Ralph Grabowski

The best thing to do is to download the 30-day demo of various CAD programs to see if their architectural abilities suit you. In some cases, you will have to get an add-on app that does architectural design.

The free version of DraftSight is a general CAD package, meaning it is meant for 2D drawings and not specific to any discipline in particular.

The Pro (paid) version of DraftSight is oriented towards mechanical design.
