Free professional CAD CAM solution - DraftSight for Linux
I tested all available in SUSE repositories CAD CAM solutions but no one of them is enough good. Searching for sulution elsewhere I found the 'DraftSight: The Free CAD software for your DWG files'.
This is a product of Dasault Systems and is free for single user use. The Linux version of the software looks very professional and I found it working perfectly.
So please if possible contact them and agree to make possible to provide from Yast their free Linux version. This software will be the really useful fully functional free native Linux CAD CAM solution for SUSE.
Since the time of KDE 3 when the Qcad somehow did the job, now we do not have any good technical draftig solution in openSUSE.
But today almost no one uses only the *.dxf format. To work with DWG files many people are enforced to use Windows. The missing free professional CAD CAM solution for SUSE does not help for growing of SUSE Linux users. So we need a free solution for *.DWG and *.DXF files as many students and technical workers are using SUSE Linux and need such sulution.
In the real life there are plenty of cases where is far too expensive to buy AutoCAD just to be able to open few drawings for confirmation purposes. Also there are many SUSE users who are in need for such solution.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
This is the perfect solution for students, engineers and many other who need to use technical drawings.
In the real life we found many cases where we need to open, print and in some cases change/edit little bit a technical draft drawing.
Unfortunately most of the cases people use the AutoCAD *.dwg and alyke file formats.
