Free Tool for Architects

People who are looking for powerful drafting software are sure to find that DraftSight is a good option. Unlike many tools of this type that are rather costly it is available free of charge and comes packed with innovative features that professional architects are sure to find very useful.

Designing has Never Been Easier

One of the great things about DraftSight is that although the programme does not take up too much space it runs very quickly and is packed with features. This is an excellent option for small companies that do not have the budget to pay out for the professional version but still want to take advantage of the professional tools that the free version delivers. Drawing documents can be done very easily while users also have the option to create tables label their documents and customise the layout in a wide range of different ways. creating new documents from scratch can also be done very easily.

Getting into the Drafting Groove

Considering that it is a completely free programme DraftSight really delivers and there are plenty of tools for modern architects to make use of. However some users have found that there are bugs and users who experience this may find that it is worth paying for the full version.


  • Runs very quickly and smoothly
  • Easy to use
  • Lots of customisable options


  • There are a few bugs
  • Not all of the features of the professional version are available
