Professional-grade desktop DWG CAD in a cloud PLM environment

2D and 3D Cloud Design

3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight is a professional-grade desktop DWG CAD solution you can use anywhere.

Login to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform from the web on any PC to download and launch a full DraftSight installation that saves and manages your CAD data in the cloud, with integrated PLM functionality so that you can easily collaborate with other team members.

No fixed licenses, no database servers, no VPNs, just efficient design and engineering from anywhere.

“We chose a 3D EXPERIENCE Works Simulation solution because it’s cloud-based, which supports our remotely located engineering organization, works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS design data, and incorporates the Abaqus Explicit solver, which is best suited for the types of simulation studies that we need to conduct on our parts, which can involve hyperelasticity, creep, fatigue, and contact.”

– Thomas Morgan
Design Engineer

2D Design Tools
Create basic elements such as lines, polylines, arcs, circles, ellipses, layers, blocks, and others.

2D Documentation Tools
Create basic annotation elements such as notes, dimensions, tables, hatches, clouds, and others.

Community Resources
Offer learning resources and a collaborative environment to interact with your peers, ask questions, and share opinions.

PDF Underlay
Attach pages of a PDF document to a drawing.

Quickly generate hardware, holes, balloons, Bills of Materials (BOMs), welding and surface finish symbols.

Batch Printing
Send a set of drawings and sheets to printers in a batch job.

Drawing Compare
Compare graphically similar entities between two drawing documents.

Power Trim
Trim multiple, adjacent entities by dragging the pointer across each entity.

G-Code Generator
Communicate with a CNC machine for fabrication.

DGN Import
Directly import and convert the DGN file format drawing into a DraftSight project for direct editing.

DraftSight APIs
Allow end users or third-party developers to customize and automate DraftSight.

Image Tracer
Convert an imported raster image file (ex. floor plan, logo) into vectorized line entities.

Using Formulas in Table Cells
Use formulas in cells with arithmetic operators and the Sum, Average, and Count functions.

Trimming of Hatches and Gradients
Trim hatches and gradients with the Trim and PowerTrim commands.

3D Modeling Tools
Bring your 2D CAD into three dimensions with extrusions, cuts, and any standard 3D modeling tools.

2D Constraints
Exert full control over drawn entities in relation to the design space and each other.

Mass Property Calculations
Calculate mass, surface area, volume, density, etc.

Create Custom Blocks
Use blocks to create standard, reusable entities that you can bring into any drawing.

On-Cloud PDM
Store, share, access and manage the latest product design information from a centralized, secure location.

On-Cloud PLM
Manage the lifecycle of any type of content (CAD files, simulations, documentation, etc.) Track issues, changes and routes, and reduce conflicting edits from multiple contributors with revision control.

On-Cloud Collaboration
Collaborate in real time using configurable dashboards, social communities, Kanban-style task management, activity streams, persistent chat, and video calls. Easily search, visualize, explore, and mark up SOLIDWORKS and other files directly in your browser.

On-Cloud Governance
Monitor and manage licenses and users from a single administrative dashboard, lowering administrative overhead. Easily stay up-to-date and benefit from the latest enhancements.

Training and Support
Get up to speed fast using online training content, a vibrant community, and support from GoEngineer.
