DraftSight: CAD Software for your DWG Files by Dassault Systèmes
DraftSight is a professional-grade 2D CAD product for users who want a better way to create, edit, view and markup 2D and 3D DWG files with great ease, speed and efficiency. It is excellent for individuals who need a straight-forward 2D drafting solution including students, hobbyists, and more.
Real design freedom is letting you work the way you want to work. It’s the ability to effortlessly go from 2D drafting to 3D modeling and back again in order to optimize and maximize designs. And the capability to seamlessly integrate with other Dassault Systèmes and SOLIDWORKS® solutions, including SOLIDWORKS PDM to easily manage your DWG file designs from first inspiration to final outcome, and SOLIDWORKS Electrical to edit your electrical schematics directly in DraftSight.
Moving to 3D design - it’s not as hard as you might think
Have you ever gotten a call from your machine shop pointing out an error in a drawing; or even worse, received parts back from the shop only to discover an error that was overlooked? One of the major benefits of 3D CAD is that it lets you check for form, fit and function before spending a dime to manufacture parts.
Moving to 3D is easier than you think. SOLIDWORKS software allows you to preserve the value of your 2D DWG data with the best available tools for converting data from 2D to 3D, accommodating reusable 2D geometry, and enabling a smooth transition - including extensive help documentation for AutoCAD users.
