What do you do when suppliers send over 2D drawings as DWG/DXF and you need to view, print and make the occasional edit? …. Answer use DraftSight!


A variety of product offerings are available with the DraftSight family and with this webinar, we will focus on the free version which runs on Windows, Mac & Linux platforms. Running through hints and tips on using the software this will allow you to get the most from it, it’s free why not give it a go!
