AutoCAD software is the leading Computer Aid Design software package in the world. It is costly for businesses, almost UN-affordable for casual CAD designer . It was a happy surprise to stumble to Draft Sight, a CAD software package made by Dassault System with similar user interface and shortcuts as AutoCAD. DraftSight can open and save file to AutoCAD’s dwg format. And it is free!
