Enterprise

Create basic elements such as lines, polylines, arcs, circles, ellipses, layers, blocks, and others.

Handle all aspects of your part and assembly modeling with the SOLIDWORKS 3D design system for transforming ideas and concepts into virtual 3D models. For conceptual design, create 3D designs quickly using imported images, simple sketches, or scanned 3D data, and then add more details as the design evolves. Assembly structure planning lets you quickly lay out your design assembly structure and then export to SOLIDWORKS for automatically creating CAD files. Direct model editing lets you manipulate and modify 3D geometry working directly on 3D CAD models.

Create basic annotation elements such as notes, dimensions, tables, hatches, clouds, and others.

Offer learning resources and a collaborative environment to interact with your peers, ask questions, and share opinions.

Attach pages of a PDF document to a drawing.

Quickly generate hardware, holes, balloons, Bills of Materials (BOMs), welding and surface finish symbols.

Send a set of drawings and sheets to printers in a batch job.

Compare graphically similar entities between two drawing documents.

Trim multiple, adjacent entities by dragging the pointer across each entity.

Communicate with a CNC machine for fabrication.

Directly import and convert the DGN file format drawing into a DraftSight project for direct editing.

Allow end users or third-party developers to customize and automate DraftSight.

Convert an imported raster image file (ex. floor plan, logo) into vectorized line entities.

Use formulas in cells with arithmetic operators and the Sum, Average, and Count functions.

Trim hatches and gradients with the Trim and PowerTrim commands.

Introduces 3D modeling using basic geometrical shapes (ex. Box, Pyramid) or other methods (ex. Extrude, Revolve) with Boolean operations (ex. Union, Subtract).

Use 2D Constraints to control drawing entities parametrically by specifying geometric and dimensional properties of entities.

Enable concurrent usage and compliance across the organization.

Enable large groups of users to install or upgrade DraftSight.
