DraftSight- a free Cad software

Dassault Systèmes (DS), a 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions provider, on Wednesday announced the availability of DraftSight for operating system Linux.

DraftSight for Linux allows users to create, edit and view DWG files and it generally takes a few minutes to download, said a press release.

It runs on multiple operating systems, including Linux and Mac OS in beta, and Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 in general release, the company claimed.

“We’ve been working on the Linux version since the launch of DraftSight and have seen a significant rise in demand for this over the last few months,” said Aaron Kelly, senior director, DraftSight, Dassault Systèmes.

DraftSight beta users have access to no-cost community support available within the DraftSight open, online SwYm community where they can access support and training resources, along with an environment to interact, ask questions and share their opinions.

The DraftSight community is one of the first social networks designed by engineers for engineers, designers and architects. It is a no-cost 2D CAD product for CAD professionals, students and educators.
