Why Choose DraftSight Professional
Drafters, designers and engineers choose DraftSight Professional as their 2D CAD solution to create, view, manage, and convert drawings including DGN, DXF and DWG files. DraftSight Professional includes all features in DraftSight Standard, with additional powerful productivity-boosters to simplify the design process and get the job done fast. Plus, API access allows for complete customization of your experience.
Convert raster images in .bmp, .png, and .jpg formats into accurate and editable lines and curves in DWG files. The images can range widely from floor plans to artistic logos saving massive time and tedious effort to manually retrieve and edit the image elements.
More top features include:
3D ContentCentral® in the Task Pane†
DraftSight contains robust mechanical tools and symbols that will help you standardize your mechanical drafting practices and speed up your time to market. The Mechanical Toolbox allows you to choose which industry-standard you want to use or create your own custom standard.
BAK, DGN & PDF
Convert DGN or BAK files to DWG files and attach PDFs. Import SVG files and insert blocks. Generate 2D floor plans with .DSHBM files from HomeByMe.
API automates tasks that speed up workflows. Create add-ins and use DraftSight Professional in your workflows that involve systems like ERP, PDM and LISP routines.
Cut down manual tasks with Usability improvements and tools. Power Trim lines and entities or use Batch print to print an unopened folder.
Auto Trim Dimension Extension Lines
Dragging dimensions to other areas of your geometry no longer requires manual trimming or adjusting.
Auto Dimension and Auto Arrange Dimensions
Automatically create dimensions for selected elements, then preview and easily adjust their placements as desired.
Thumbwheel for Dimension Palette
Easily adjust spacing of dimensions by dragging the wheel.
Access a central location with user-defined reusable elements like blocks, which can be easily added to your drawing with a drag and drop.
Compare drawing revisions to quickly identify and track changes. Draw Compare will graphically depict differences between drawings or show entities that have been added or removed in the color of your choice.
Load multiple drawing files and select the sheets you’d like to print, with the ability to print sheets from multiple files simultaneously, saving you valuable time throughout your drafting process.
Convert drawing entities to a G-Code (.txt) file to send to a CNC machine for manufacturing or fabrication to save the time and effort of creating G-Code outside of DraftSight separately.
Import and convert a DGN file format drawing into a DraftSight project for direct editing.
Placing Dimensions with Widgets
Automatically place dimensions that are aligned with and spaced from other dimensions with predefined offset distances.
Dimension Snap Offset Distances
Place and locate dimensions with more precision with “snaps”.
Formulas in Table Cells
Calculate values like Sum, Average, and Count with formulas directly in your design’s table cells like any spreadsheet application.
Pattern Along a Path
Quickly create a pattern of repeating entities along a predefined path.
Precisely place text along an arc by controlling the text direction and location.
Access your floorplan created in HomeByMe from inside the DraftSight task pane and generate a fully-dimensioned 2D DWG file. †Feature currently unavailable for Mac versions
