    Draftsight is a great free software for 2D. For 3D, I'm using Autodesk Fusion 360. OK, 2D software by Dassault Systemes, modeling software by Autodesk. Am I backwards or just cheap?

    The vast majority of posts are recommending either DeltaCAD or Draftsight. I downloaded and tried both. For my limited ability in understanding CAD the DeltaCAD was the easiest to learn. I also like the more "Mainstream" Draftsight but I needed to figure out something fast. Moving forward I plan to purchase DeltaCAD and continue to learn Draftsight.

    The ability to delete line segments easily (in DeltaCAD) is one problem that I wish was easier. It can be done by editing a line into several segments first but it would be much easier if a line automatically split into segments when you crossed it with another line. The ability to export directly to PDF can be done in Draftsight but not DeltaCAD.

    I still have to conquer scaling (so dimensions come out correct) and need to come up with a decent Title Block for DeltaCAD that I can use when starting a drawing.

    All in all at least I can now stop having to clear off my drafting table every time I need a drawing and stop having to use MS Paint for making simple drawings.

    Thanks to all the posters. You are a big help!
