Unlike traditional CAD, DraftSight offers a transparent, community-driven development process to move with confidence. Users do not have to start from scratch if they have pre-existing support files such as template files (.dwt) or menu files (.cui, .mnu, .mns.). DraftSight can use these and other support files.
DraftSight has the interoperability needed in today’s design environment. It can create binary or ASCII files, has the ability to attach image files and external reference drawings support multi-page PDF creation and have the ability to publish to eDrawings or Drawings now. DraftSight can export to several different raster formats, including PDF, PNG, TIF, SAT and STL.
