DraftSight supports viewing and manipulating AutoCAD® Dynamic Blocks. The special grips allow you to change size, shape, orientation, or even choose how a block is displayed among multiple variations carried over from your legacy drawings.
Why Choose DraftSight Premium
Entrepreneurs, makers, manufacturers, designers, and engineers choose DraftSight Premium to experience an all-in-one, collaborative CAD solution to effortlessly go from 2D drafting to 3D modeling within the same environment, and to seamlessly connect to other solutions and services. DraftSight Premium includes all the features in DraftSight Professional, plus full 3D capabilities, 2D constraints and powerful integrations with other Dassault Systèmes and SOLIDWORKS® solutions, including SOLIDWORKS PDM and the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform that allow for easy collaboration and management of DWG file designs from first inspiration to final outcome.
Premium Top Features
DraftSight Premium and DraftSight Enterprise Plus include the 3D Modeling Workspace, where you can access the all-in-one 2D drafting and 3D design experience. Access a full suite of powerful 3D modeling and editing tools. Create predefined 3D solids, such as Boxes, Cones, Cylinders, and Spheres. Make Faces and Meshes or transform 2D shapes into 3D solids to use for 3D printing, laser cutting, or in other Dassault Systèmes solutions and services.
More top features include:
Dynamic Block Support
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. Easily define the relationships between entities and control their dimensions like length and angle.
Realize the potential of your designs through seamless integrations including SOLIDWORKS Visualize for rendering, SOLIDWORKS Simulation for analysis and 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make to connect with manufacturers worldwide for 3D printing, laser cutting, or other processes to create your 3D parts.
3D Solid Editing
Use Boolean operations to modify 3D solids. Reshape the edges using Fillet or Chamfer and use Shell to create a wall with a specific thickness.
Rotate drawing entities in 3D space around a specified axis.
Align entities with respect to other entities or other target points in 3D space.
Create a mirror image in a 3D plane around a 3D axis.
Create a pattern of entities in 3D space, either in a linear matrix or a circular alignment about a rotation axis.
Bevel the edges of 3D solid objects.
Round the edges of 3D solid objects.
Create a hollow, thin wall with a specified thickness on a 3D solid object.
Check interferences within a solid model.
Slice 3D solids with a plane or surface.
Thickens surfaces to produce 3D solids.
Create three - or four-sided surfaces in space.
Generate 3D PolygonMeshes.
Create a 3D PolygonMesh between four boundaries.
Revolve a path curve (profile) around an axis to create a surface.
Create a ruled surface between two boundary curves (profiles), resulting in a PolygonMesh surface.
Create a tabular surface using a path curve and a direction vector, resulting in a PolygonMesh surface.
Generate a cross section based on the intersection of a plane and 3D solids.
Make Flat Snapshot
Project a flat representation of 3D solid objects and regions to your drawing's X-Y plane of the active Custom Coordinate System (CCS).
Define Geometric Constraints for one or more entities.
Define Dimensional Constraints for entities or between constraint points on entities.
