Draftsight Users - Heads UP

Postby measuredmove » Thu Apr 04, 2019 5:02 pm

'We are also investing in other technologies including an upcoming cloud-based version of DraftSight and much more. Therefore, we want to make you aware that DraftSight 2019 for Windows® is offered in paid versions only, and all free versions of DraftSight (2018 or earlier) will cease to run after 12/31/2019. '
Everyone seems to be riding this wave now. Too bad you can't keep one Free version.

TurboCAD (DBL CAD developers --don't know why they have a second CAD product line) has always had good professional software and has had low-cost versions in the past.

Their site says compatible up to ACAD 2012 - they haven't gone any higher?

Thanks for the heads-up. Very disappointing, I use this on a regular basis for version conversion purposes. Didn't they have a slogan of "all free, all the time" (referring to DraftSight free version) or something to that effect at some point? I may be confused with another product.

I'll just have to find another free alternative then.

you don't confuse but they had surely a little clause text existing somewhere who said
we reserve the right to change the commercial policy of the product at any time! ;)

Back in the dim and foggy days of the past when an engineering office I was drafting supervisor in, was slowly switching from manual to CAD drafting-Autocad was the sole tool of the drafting department. We were finding some of the younger guys were cadding their own drawings and handing them in to get ‘cleaned up’ by the drafting dept. Of course the drawings were a mess as the ‘engineers’ couldn’t be bothered to learn or adhere to CAD standards. It was like cleaning up a kitchen after the gourmet chef has used every pot and pan to create his masterpiece. When I objected to their boss that they were using ‘our’ tool to create drawings (a fine line in a unionized position where the tool defined our job spec) he wondered Why are they using AutoCad? I told him – because they can.

So I guess the sign on the wall is We Can therefore We Will.
