    That’s a great option but we home school so he doesn’t qualify.

    Nice. I just picked up a year license of Draftsight Pro.

    The dimensioning is interesting. It seems to snap to offsets from the dimensioned edge. Keeps things looking uniform.

    I've been jumping between Chief Architect (CA), AutoCAD LT (LT), and DraftSight (DS) all morning.
    It's been fun.
    Had to set LT to default save to 2013 format so that DS could open those files.
    Tried the ZoomAllExtents lisp in DS but it wouldn't load it.
    I guess it's a bit picky.

    Tried RayTrace in CA (new machine is 6 years newer than my old CAD machine) that was cool.

    I'll need more time with DS to find out how to do simple things like unlocking layers. So easy in LT.

    Some lisp routines, (written for Autocad), might not work in Draftsight or other CAD programs. They may require different coding.

    I have also verified that if you are an existing customer, and your existing rental period is nearing the end, you do NOT qualify for the $285. You, as an existing customer, must pay the full retail price in order to keep renting the application.

    I would LOVE to see a survey of former LT users that have moved on to other products. While I prefer AutoCAD I can see why some users are looking/looked to other products. I myself have tried lots of them and so far none of them are as "fluid" in their workflow to me as AutoCAD.
    Options are ALWAYS good to have.

    It should be noted that Bricsys also offers educational licensing at no cost.

    That's what I've done with at least 3 AutoCAD products.
