DraftSight: Free CAD software for Windows, Mac and Linux


On a Macintosh related mailing list on wich I’m subscribed a member pointed us to this little app. DraftSight is a free 2D CAD product that lets you create, edit and view your DWG files.

Based on an advanced architecture, DraftSight has a small footprint, should take less than a few minutes to download, and runs on multiple operating systems including Microsoft® Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, Windows® 7 (general release), Mac® and Linux®** (Mac and Linux currently in Beta).

You can download your copy HERE.

  1. I just checked the license on this program. It is NOT free! It is a proprietary freeware program. Very important distinction: freeware is not free!

    Free software must respect the user’s four essential software freedoms. DraftSight appears to violate all four.
