A bit of CAD news today for a change.
Firstly, Draftsight is finally out of beta and available for download from www.draftsight.com for free. I’ve been using it for a while as an alternative to IntelliCAD and, even in beta, it was an excellent product.
If you are looking for a low cost, AutoCAD compatible, 2D CAD package, check it out.
The OS X version of Draftsight, available from the link above also, is still in beta, but is certainly worth checking out. Unfortunately, there is still no sign of the Linux version.
- Multi-Language Support
- Inventor DWG File Support
- Drawing Layouts
- Snap Previews
- Brush Tool
- Copy Tool
- Support for Imperial Units (feet and inches)
More news on the release can be found here.
Bad news for Android users though, there is still no sign of a version for Googles OS unfortunately. We live in hope!
