Making the Switch from AutoCAD® to DraftSight®

Making the Switch from AutoCAD® to DraftSight®

CentraSep was challenged with finding a effective 2D CAD solution to accelerate centrifuge quoting, sales, and development processes that works well alongside their SOLIDWORKS® 3D design software. Their solution came down to the simple fact that they need to replace AutoCAD with DraftSight. Read the case study to see how CentraSep Technologies relies on DraftSight to optimize the use of 2D and 3D design tools.

READ NOW: When is 2D Enough?

There are many reasons that 2D CAD is still so prolific.  Many projects, including publicly procured projects, still require 2D deliverables.  Some industries are somewhat better suited for 2D over 3D, such as Electrical or Facility Management.  And, many companies are living happily ever after in their 2D world and have no desire to change.  The reasons are vast and varied – and the file format of choice is DWG.

While we do indeed live in a 3D World – there are many who are still thriving in 2D.  Lynn Allen says, “Thrive in whatever world you desire – but don’t spend extra money doing it!”
