For individuals, designers, makers, manufacturers, professionals, and companies that need a robust 2D drafting and 3D design experience to help meet their needs on drafting, modeling, prototyping, manufacturing, laser cutting and 3D printing. It includes all the time-saving productivity functionalities and APIs in addition to the full 3D tools and constraints capabilities that are exclusive to Premium version.
Entrepreneurs, manufacturers, designers, and engineers choose DraftSight Premium to experience an all-in-one, collaborative CAD solution to effortlessly go from 2D drafting to 3D modeling within the same environment, and to seamlessly connect to other solutions and services.
DraftSight Premium includes all the features in DraftSight Professional, plus full 3D capabilities, 2D constraints and powerful integrations with other Dassault Systèmes and SOLIDWORKS® solutions, including SOLIDWORKS PDM and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform that allow for easy collaboration and management of DWG file designs from first inspiration to final outcome.
Experience premium 3D modeling tools to create anything from basic 3D shapes like boxes, wedges, cylinders, and spheres to sketch-based complex 3D solids using Extrude, Revolve, Sweep, Polysolid, Push and Pull, and Loft functions. Leverage 2D geometry to transform into 3D solids and send for downstream use in different file formats like .stl or .sat for 3D printing or use them with other 3D applications.
Easily modify 3D solids using Boolean operations such as Union, Intersect and Subtract, reshape the edges using Fillet Edges or Chamfer Edges with different options, and use the Shell function to create a hollow, thin wall with a specified thickness.
Control drawing entities parametrically by specifying geometric and dimensional properties. Easily define the relationships between entities and control their dimensions like length and angle.
Create complex 3D surfaces or geometries by defining a mesh with custom contours and numerous editable points for better control and design.
Realize the potential of your designs through seamless integrations including SOLIDWORKS Visualize for rendering, SOLIDWORKS Simulation for analysis and 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make to connect with manufacturers worldwide for 3D printing, laser cutting, or other processes to create your 3D.
More options, choices and tools to suit your design needs and preferences.
Rotate drawing entities in 3D space around a specified axis.
Align entities with respect to other entities or other target points in 3D space.
Create a mirror image in a 3D plane around a 3D axis.
Create a pattern of entities in 3D space, either in a linear matrix or a circular alignment about a rotation axis.
Bevel the edges of 3D solid objects.
Round the edges of 3D solid objects.
Create a hollow, thin wall with a specified thickness on a 3D solid object.
