DraftSight no longer available on Linux

On Jan 2, 2020 DraftSight Linux discontinuation was announced. Consider libre free CAD programs that work on Linux, MacOS and Windows instead of DraftSight. DraftSight is a non-free program available for Windows only, and in the future for cloud.

3DS DraftSight has 2-D and some 3-D functionality. All no-cost DraftSight licenses were terminated on 31 DEC 2019.

DraftSight was provided at no cost from 2010-2019 for Windows, MacOS and Linux. DraftSight is natively compatible with AutoCAD DWG / DXF formats through R2018 (used by AutoCAD 2020).


If you have a high resolution screen and the DraftSight GUI icons look too small, try Tools → Options → System Options → Display → Screen Options → Use Large Icons.
