Premium 3D Capabilities and 2D Constraints
Experience premium 3D modeling tools to create anything from basic 3D shapes like Boxes, Wedges, Cylinders, Spheres, and Torus to sketch-based complex 3D solids using Extrude, Revolve, Sweep, PolySolid, Push and Pull, and Loft functions.
3D Solid Editing
Easily modify 3D solids using Boolean operations such as Union and Subtract, and reshape the edges of 3D geometries using Fillet Edges or Chamfer Edges with different options.
Create complex 3D surfaces or geometries by defining a mesh with custom contours and numerous editable points for better control and design.
Control drawing entities parametrically by specifying geometric and dimensional properties. Define an accurate 2D profile or sketch using Geometric and/or Dimensional Constraints.
Enhanced Usability and Productivity
Convert an attached raster image of BMP, JPEG, PNG file format into vectorized line entities.
DraftSight / HomeByMe Integration
Browse and import a .DSHBM file (exported from HomeByMe) directly into DraftSight application to generate 2D floor plan drawings.
Import SVG file
Import a SVG format file into DraftSight and insert it as a Block.
Drawing Frame and Title Block Library
Provide a set of predefined Frames and Title blocks according to engineering standard and lets you specify the size and scale.
Block Attribute Manager
Manage properties and settings of BlockAttributes in Block definitions.
Using Formulas in Table Cells
Use formulas in cells with arithmetic operators and the Sum, Average, and Count functions (to calculate values based on the values from other cells).
Trimming of Hatches and Gradients
Trim Hatches and Gradients with the Trim and PowerTrim commands. Divided Hatches and Gradients maintain associativity and remain as one entity.
Moving Entities by Click and Drag
Moves entities into a new position much faster by clicking anywhere on an entity and dragging it with one mouse click.
Hairline Option for Printout
Sets a "hairline" linewidth in the Print dialog box used especially for laser cutter output.
Display of center marks according to standards improved.
Layer: Viewport Layer Freezing
Freezes specified layers in new viewports on layout sheets (New VP Freeze option), or freezes selected layers only in the current layout viewport (VP Freeze option).
SVG scalable icons for HD displays
User interface icons scale seamlessly on high-resolution (4K) displays.
3D Mouse Support
Use 3D Mouse models to navigate 2D or 3D drawings. You can simultaneously pan and zoom the drawing, and rotate the model.
New Ribbon Tab for “Import“
Consolidates all the “Attach“ and Import“ tools of different file formats into a single, more intuitive and easy to find ribbon tab.
Realize the potential of your designs through seamless integration with other solutions including 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make to connect with manufacturers worldwide for 3D printing, laser cutting, or other processes to create your 3D parts, SOLIDWORKS Visualize for rendering, SOLIDWORKS Simulation for analysis, and more.
API Access for Customization
Automate tasks within DraftSight Professional to speed up your production workflows with the DraftSight API. Integrate DraftSight Professional into your workflows that involve other systems like ERP, PDM, or other databases, and LISP Routines. Create add-ins that simulate the behavior of other CAD application add-ins.
