What's new in the free version of DraftSight?

  • Recent Documents: Hit F4 on your keyboard, and the last 12 drawing files will graphically appear in the window. Simply click the image to open a specific file.
  • Improved Table Editing: More flexibility with editing and inserting tables.

 

The Professional Pack and Enterprise Pack Offerings for DraftSight now include the following additional enhancements:

  • Power Trim: Trim and extend entities by simply dragging the cursor over the objects to be modified. There is no need to select boundary lines.
  • Dimension Palette: Update the formatting of all dimensions in place without the need to use the Properties Palette.
  • Rotate-Move-Copy: One of the most requested updates to DraftSight, users can now rotate, move, copy and even scal entities in one command.
  • Delete Duplicates: Clean up drawing files by deleting lines that are created on top of existing lines. For lines that overlap each other, this command will merge the two entities together.
  • G-Code Generator: Allows users to create the G-Code for the machining of the part. G-Code is an NC (numerically controlled) programming language used for controlling automated machine tools.
  • Toolbox updates:
    • Reorganized and simplified options menu where users can access a central options dialog for all of their toolbox settings.
    • Screw Connections: insert hardware stack-ups that are typical in assembly drawings. Stack-ups will include all of the necessary hardware such as Bolts, Washers and Nuts.
  • Design Library update: Navigate to any file and select a block, text style, line style, or dimension style for the current file.
