DraftSight has a familiar user interface and a minimal learning curve that facilitates an easy transition from your current CAD application. This course assumes you have no or minimal experience of 2D CAD and runs through all the basics needed to get working productively in the software. From understanding the basics of model and sheet space, to drawing and manipulating geometry, the 2 day course aims to give users a good footing in the software on which to build.
