Step up to the next level alternatives.


If your just looking for 2D drafting and you’re not already CAD trained then RealCAD® is the perfect solution. Easier and faster to use for professionals that are not locked into using only the .DWG file format.

Ares Commander

ARES® Commander is basically DraftSight® without limits. A measurably superior DWG based CAD built on the same underlying principles to make transitioning from Draftsight® or AutoCAD® seamless.

If you already know and use Draftsight® but want to upgrade your abilities without losing any of the drawings or learning you have already accumulated, then ARES® Commander is the product to choose.


Whilst Draftsight® is often used as a shoehorn into Solidworks®, by going straight to IronCAD® you can achieve even greater productivity, price savings and ease of use. IronCAD is the way 3D design should be and is very much a next level Solidworks® alternative.
