Pros: Draftsight is an easy to use CAD software. Has many features that others CAD don't had. The best of the software is the DWG compatibility and the PDF printer. No other CAD software has that pdf feature at a low cost. The interface is very similar to leading CAD software. The free version is amazing for a 2D CAD.

Cons: The support for free version is bad, but if you buy the PRO version of the software the support is excellent.

Overall: Easy to use. DWG Compatibility. Its price.

Happy with the Free Version

Pros: Overall, DraftSight has a very similar interface and feel to AutoCAD 2-D. It was not difficult to transition from one program to the other. It also recognizes many AutoCAD commands. We have access to this program included at no cost with our SolidWorks license.

Cons: Being the free version, it only has basic functions and does not have many of the advanced features I am used to using in AutoCAD.

Used it as a mechanical design to see autocad alternatives

Pros: The price, as a free user, it great. And what I like most is the fact that it's easier and more logical that other 2D cad software.

Cons: Nothing really, a 3D modules would have been great, but we can't have it all, and that's more a whish that a cons.

Overall: A powerful 2D CAD drawing software, well engineered !

For learning how to draw with free software, the best option.

Pros: First at all it's free, but it's not just that, they have a lot of feature to make easy 2D draws, it's a really completed software to make CAD files.

Cons: As almost any free software it's a little bit limited in his functionalities. It's not the most friendly software but it's good enough.

Great free drafting software. Did everything I needed to do for $0

Pros: I was formally trained on another CAD software during school, but felt at ease right away once I opened DraftSight for the first time. It does everything for me that the other (expensive) CAD software could do, but note that I am a beginner just creating simple drafts. I'm sure there are some advanced features that it may be lacking, but for simple drafts this product is great. No need to pay thousands of dollars for another CAD software.

Cons: I can't think of any cons for this software. My experience has been somewhat limited since I only create simple drafts, but everything has run smoothly

Capterra-loader

It is necessary and economical offers all the basic functions, as well as allowing you to publish!

Pros: It is multiplatform, which means that this alternative can be installed in AutoCAD, in operating systems such as Windows, Linux and Mac.

Cons: The paid version of this software contains some type of advertising when using it and it becomes annoying, while the page that is in the free version does not have any type of advertising within the program, something that has very good acceptance among users

Awesome software to start.

Pros: Well, I think that the main pros obviously is the fact that it's free, and have a really intuitive way to use. It's a great gate to enter at the world of design.

Cons: As almost any software free, it's has a lack of solutions for many problems or has solutions that in a pay software would it be most easy to solve.
