DraftSight 2021 SP0 Now Available

Well, the keen eyed users out there will have noticed that DraftSight 2021 has arrived. So what can you do with this new version of DraftSight that you couldn’t in previous versions? Let me tell you just some of the new features!

Run Visual LISP directly: You can now simply load your Visual LISP routines just like opening a file and execute as designed. LISP routines are frequent and important automations to speed up repetitive tasks and ensure quality. This expands on DraftSight’s existing support for AutoLISP.

Modify patterns associatively and directly with graphical grips: Users can easily drag and drop to adjust pattern location, instance and spacing.

Control image quality on PDF prints: DraftSight 2021 has improved PDF output for your presentations, speed up printing and cut file sizes.

Modify the model viewport background colour directly with a command: It’s quick and easy, just use MODELBACKGROUNDCOLOR at the Prompt to set up.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be going through these and other new features such as Associative Patterns, Dynamic Block Support, Auto Dimension and more in DraftSight 2021. We’ll show you how to use the commands and offer up some tips and tricks to help improve your DraftSight experience.

As usual, DraftSight 2021 comes in 4 different versions:

DraftSight Standard at $99.00 per year
DraftSight Professional at $199.00 per year
DraftSight Premium (includes 3D) at $499.00 per year.

There is also a fourth version of DraftSight, called Enterprise. This is aimed at large organisations with many users and / or multiple sites. For pricing, contact DraftSight directly.

The first time I used CAD, it was on a DOS PC with an 8088 processor, 640K of memory and a Hercules Mono Graphics Card... That, well that was a long long time ago. I switched to DraftSight the day it was released and haven't looked back!
