    • I use Freecad to design my 3D printing models. Guest • Oct 2015 Disagree   Agree
    • Freecad is (as mentioned in the description) for 3D parametric CAD, and has no drafting functionality worth speaking of. Not a bad program, but certainly not an AutoCAD replacement. It has much more similarity to SolidWorks than AutoCAD Guest • Jan 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Not directly supporting DWG: needs a commercial/trial license of a file converter Guest • Apr 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • FreeCAD is not a bad program, but it seems to lack functionality that AutoCAD provides. Currently FreeCAD seems to be in an early stage of development, and should probably not be considered for use in a professional production context, as a replacement for AutoCAD. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Because i'ts equal in 2D part. Very good, has free version, and multiplatform. Guest • Feb 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Fully compatible with, industry standard, AutoCAD DWG files. Uses a command line based interface that works in the same way as AutoCAD. Guest • Dec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • DraftSight is developed as a competitor to AutoCAD 2D. Distributed as a free (well also has a paid version) software to compete with 2D AutoCAD. Guest • Jul 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • One of the better, if not the best CAD for Linux. Works on Fedora, would recommend this program. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • the free version really read/write autocad files. rbadillarxMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • This is the closest program in functionality to Autocad, It could use some stability improvements. Guest • May 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • The interface is very similar and it was able to open existing autocadd drawings. this allowed a seamless transition. Guest • Jan 2017 Disagree   Agree

about Autodesk AutoCAD Jun 2011

Free alternatives to AutoCAD you can find on (1 - in english) and (2 - in german).
Free alternatives, which can read and store dwg- and dxf-files are DoubleCAD XT, LiteCAD, A9CAD, pCon.planner6 (6 languages). DoubleCAD XT (is very similar to AutoCAD). Why it is by far better than AutoCAD LT 2010, you see in the "Comparison AutoCAD LT & DoubleCAD XT Pro 2.0": (3)
