Is there an alternative to DraftSight for Solidworks PDM PDF task? Before purchasing DraftSight Pro, those with the money are asking if there's an alternative. Would a dedicated seat of AutoCAD work just the same?
If you already have a seat of AutoCAD (not LT) then give it a shot. Wouldn't take a few minutes to set it up.
If you don't have AutoCAD, why in the world would you want to spend thousands for a single seat when a few hundred gets you DraftSight Pro? Plus, you're renting the AutoCAD and owning the DraftSight Pro.
Thanks for the reply. And you're preaching to the choir! We do have several seats of AutoCAD. But I'm trying to purchase DraftSight Pro (DSP). But my management is asking what are the alternatives to buying DSP. Yes, they're aware that full Acad is way more, but management does things their own way. I just wanted to list the known workable alternatives and give them that info. Thanks for the help! :-)
There's always my add-in that uses AutoCAD as well as DraftSight. Granted, a license for my add-in is more than DraftSight Pro, but you may find limitations in the SW add-in that mine doesn't have.
The next release of my add-in will not require AutoCAD or DraftSight.
