DraftSight, the exciting FREE  2D CAD tool from Dassault Systems is now Released Product!

It took only a few moments to download this mear 57MB install. It took even less time to install and required no reboot or shutdown of other applications! (Win 7 x64)

As a first test I tried opening a 10MB .dwg file from a customer who had been unsuccessfull opening it with SolidWorks. This file opened with only one message of an entity type, I selected ok and viola there it is! If it hadn’t been for that message window it would’ve been opened instantly!

If you have .dwg and .dxf data files that you need to get into quick, try out the Production Version of DraftSight!
