What is DraftSight?
DraftSight is a professional-grade 2D design and drafting solution from Dassault Systems, the parent company of SOLIDWORKS. DraftSight natively reads and writes in the .dwg format, which is the world’s most popular CAD format. In today’s job market, more and more designers are entering the workforce with only 3D CAD experience, which can be a challenge when they are asked to work with legacy 2D CAD data.
With decades worth of valuable 2D CAD data, companies need employees that are capable of manipulating these files. Without the proper training, employees will struggle with the 2D CAD product.
