The 2D Trifecta is Complete. DraftSight for Linux Now Available

29 March, 2011


Three different versions of a free 2D CAD program made for three different operating systems, doesn’t exactly make a program 3D, but times are lean and we’ll take what we can get. If you’ve been gnawing the meaty bone of Windows or Mac OS hankering for the fatty goodness of open source drafting, you’r 2D line slappin’ dreams are coming true today.

Dassault has just released the Linux version of their 2D design tool, DraftSight.

As you may know, DraftSight is built on Graebert’s ARES platform. 8 months after Dassault launched DraftSight for Windows and 5 months after Graebert released their own version of ARES Commander for Linux, Dassault has launched DraftSight for Linux. There’s no word on all the Linux version which are supported, but if it lines up with what is offered by Greabert for ARES Linux it will look something like this…
  • supports 32-bit versions of Ubuntu® 9.10 Gnome, Fedora® 11 Gnome, Suse® 11.2 Gnome, Mandriva® 2010 Gnome and KDE, or higher versions.
  • does not support the specific Windows Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) and the export of Enhanced Windows Metafile (EMF) images.
  • supports application development through Lisp, C/C++, and the DRX API. Windows specific technologies like VSTA, ActiveX, and COM. LISP encryption are not supported.
If you’ve used either the Windows or Mac versions of either ARES or DraftSight, you’ll notice the same UI and most of the same tools – simple, clean and just what you need to open up DWG’s and perform all the basic 2D operations and a few of the advanced. You can download DraftSight for Linux now. In addition, Dassault is building a community around DraftSight. People of like mind, with the same questions you have can be found on SwYm, Facebook and Twitter.

    Another few minutes of giooooglong and I found the answer: Re: Plot Styles with AutoCad for Mac 2012Options08-29-2011 01:18 PM in reply to: katie1994File -> Page Setup Manager. Select the gear and choose edit. (or choose the plus to create a new style) In the dialog box that pops up, there is a tiny little triangle in a tiny little grey circle in the bottom righthand corner.You can also get there in the current page setup style by typing Plot at the command line, then click on the Edit Page Setup button, then look for the little triangle in the lower right hand corner.In your case, the above is after you have imported your existing file. Works!

  • I really believe that a property foreclosures can have a important effect on the borrower’s life. Mortgage foreclosures can have a 6 to several years negative influence on a borrower’s credit report. A new borrower who has applied for home financing or just about any loans for that matter, knows that a worse credit rating is, the more complicated it is to have a decent personal loan. In addition, it could possibly affect the borrower’s capacity to find a decent place to let or rent, if that becomes the alternative real estate solution. Great blog post.
