DraftSight: A Better 2D Drafting and 3D Design Experience

Which DraftSight Package is Right For You?

Draftsight Feature Matrix
Standard Professional Premium Enterprise/Enterprise Plus
2D Design Tools

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

Part and Assembly Modeling

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.

2D Documentation Tools

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

Community Resources

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

PDF Underlay

Attach pages of a PDF document to a drawing.


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

Batch Printing

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

Drawing Compare

Compare graphically similar entities between two drawing documents.

Power Trim

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

G-Code Generator

Communicate with a CNC machine for fabrication.

DGN Import

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

DraftSight APIs

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

Image Tracer

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

Using Formulas in Table Cells

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

Trimming of Hatches and Gradients

Trim hatches and gradients with the Trim and PowerTrim commands.

3D Modeling Tools

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

2D Constraints

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

Network License

Enable concurrent usage and compliance across the organization.

Deployment Wizard

Enable large groups of users to install or upgrade DraftSight.

Technical Support
