DraftSight is a fully-functioned 2D CAD tool for engineers in any discipline. Whether you're doing facility layouts, electrical schematics, or need a 2D CAD tool, DraftSight provides an intuitive solution to fit your needs at a price you can afford.
DraftSight provides endless flexibility. By working seamlessly with traditional 2D CAD formats like DWG and DXF, DraftSight facilitates collaboration by helping you create and modify files that are easy to share with anyone.
DraftSight provides easy integration with powerful data management platforms such as SOLIDWORKS PDM and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. With the flexibility and power of a high-end 2D CAD tool paired with industry-leading data management, DraftSight lets you take your 2D designs to the next dimension.

Costing less doesn’t mean you get less!
If you are worrying about losing time, legacy data or custom scripts, worry no more. With DraftSight Pro or Premium, you can bring all your automated tools over and use the same LISP routines you have been using for years or even decades. Legacy data comes in without extra-steps and DraftSight saves with the .DWG format automatically, meaning there is no need to export out. We also cover how learning the DraftSight interface will be easy, meaning no down-time when you switch to it.
Join us for our live webinar where we will cover all that comes with the various DraftSight offerings and how they directly compare, and if not exceed, the offerings from AutoCAD’s line of tools. We’ll also cover some added benefits, such as: the PowerTrim tool, integrated image tracing, and access to a G-Code generator. These functions are available in a package, comparable to a full blown AutoCAD seat, at under a third of the yearly cost of AutoCAD!
SOLIDWORKS Electrical users enjoy two distinct advantages when using DraftSight, setting us apart from traditional electrical software in the market. While using SOLIDWORKS Electrical, users can edit or modify symbols using DraftSight with a simple right-click. Changes made in DraftSight will be saved to the SOLIDWORKS Electrical symbol library.
DraftSight can also be used as a viewer and markup tool for SOLIDWORKS Electrical projects. This allows the full use of DraftSight’s documentation features to further expand the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
DraftSight makes it easy to work with any traditional 2D CAD file format. With it, you can easily open, create, and modify any DWG, DXF, or SAT files. When you're done working, quickly use DraftSight to export to any of the following common file formats:
Robust tools and features to help your 2D to 3D design process.
Allows integration into the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace to enable DraftSight users to download content, from over 700 providers, to use in the designs or upload to a network of over 180 service providers. The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace simply allows users of DraftSight to quickly build their designs and have them prototype, 3D Printed or submit them for full manufacturing production.
HomeByMe is a cloud-based 3D architectural ‘home’ design tool by Dassault Systèmes. The HomeByMe addin allows users to document, dimension and save architectural drawings of the home designs.
Toolbox, familiar to SOLIDWORKS users, is a library of hardware and automation design tools based on national and international standards. These tools help automate the design process by drawing standard hardware and the companion features into your designs.
The provided G-Code generator in DraftSight translates your drawing into code that can be used to control your CNC machines. This can include, but not limited to, milling machines, laser and water jets and CNC Routers.
Quickly and accurately translate raster, non-CAD, images into editable 2D drawings using the DraftSight Image Tracer.
Quickly and easily view the differences between two documents. This too helps you understand what has changed between documents or to fully recognize the differences between similar drawings
DraftSight provides seamless integration with industry-leading data management tools. With an out-of-the-box connection to SOLIDWORKS PDM and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, it's easier than ever to store and share your 2D CAD files. Now, you can store all of your CAD data in one convenient location and quickly share them with anyone.
