Draftsight for Mac now available: Free 2D CAD

DraftSight for Mac (a new CAD .dwg editor) is now available for download!  It is a beta release, so there is still room for improvement (not that I know what needs improving on the Mac version).  If you are a Mac user who’s interested in DraftSight, please join the DraftSight.com community to get ideas or provide your suggestions.

As a drafter, mechanical designer and CAD engineer, I've been in the mechanical design field since 1991. For the first 8 years of my career, I was an AutoCAD professional. I utilized AutoLISP and many other AutoCAD customization features to streamline drafting activities for 6+ drafters and designers. I authored several custom functions, one of which was published in the March 1997 issue of Cadalyst Magazine. Since 1998, I've been used SolidWorks non-stop. I've worked to utilize the SolidWorks' user environment to simplify drafting and design activities for 20+ engineers. I've created this website to provide current information about SolidWorks from a variety of contributors. More recently, I am now employed by Dassault Systemes as SOLIDWORKS Sr. Product Definition Manager to improve drawing, annotation and MBD related areas.

  2. I can not get Draftsight to work on my mac ( OSX 10.6.4 ) I get a dialog box that shows “Library not loaded”!!

  3. Draftsight will not load on Mac OS X 10.4 either:
    Library not loaded: /usr/X11/lib/libfontconfig.1.dylib
    Referenced from: /Applications/DraftSight.app/Contents/MacOs/./../Frameworks/libDDKERNEL.1.dylib
    Reason: image not found

  4. The draftsight.com website should be able to help if there are issues. Have you logged in and checked into this problem on the support site?
