    • 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 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I use Freecad to design my 3D printing models. Guest • Oct 2015 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not bad for a free Software, but Workflow seems very antiquated and unneccessarily complicated. It lacks logic on available tools in different workbenches. There are much ways to get to your goal but every way takes really a lot of clicks and more of trial and error. Guest • Aug 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not directly supporting DWG: needs a commercial/trial license of a file converter Guest • Apr 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very good app, has many workbenches for different branches of engineering. It has a very helpful community forum. I really recommend trying it before looking for any other alternative. Guest • Jun 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.

    • FreeCAD is a software for 3d parametric model, AutoCAD is not that. Guest • Sep 2015 • 0 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • One of the better, if not the best CAD for Linux. Works on Fedora, would recommend this program. Guest • Mar 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • the free version really read/write autocad files. rbadillarxMar 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This is the closest program in functionality to Autocad, It could use some stability improvements. Guest • May 2017 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 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees 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 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The interface is very similar and it was able to open existing autocadd drawings. this allowed a seamless transition. Guest • Jan 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
