Twas the night before Christmas and all through Dassault,
The employees were ready and were all on the go.
The products have been planned and developed with care,
With hopes that customers soon would be there.

The engineers were nestled all snug in their beds,
With visions of improvements dancing in their heads.
And my manager from her home, and I on my computer,
Had just settled in, thanks to tele commuter.

When out in the field there arose a great clatter,
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the DraftSight Community I flew like a flash
To meet community members who had also made the mad dash.

The blog, loaded with materials that members needed,
Gave the advice that they surely heeded.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
An iQuestion post that I could almost hear.

DraftSight available, so lively and free,
I knew in a moment it had to be for me.
More easily available than others the product came,
We whistled and shouted and called it by name

Now Facebook! Now, Likedin Now, YouTube and Twitter. On Mac! On Windows XP, Vista and even 7!
Cross platform availability, now that’s heaven.
To the top of Google, beyond the firewall,
Now Download, Download, Download all!

DraftSight allows you to read write and share,
So easy that managers shouldn’t even care.
Edit your drawings in dxf or dwg.
How in the world can this product be free?

With DraftSight available for free in Beta,
Away they flew to make changes to their data.
Then I heard them shout, as they worked through the night,
Free CAD for all and for all DraftSight!

    Wow if these security thingys get any harder I will need a machine to identify the code. :) But I wanted to tell the people behind the DraftSight program that I do indeed try to spread it around into our schools here in Las Vegas. We are the 5th largest school district in the USA and when I can talk to a principal or teacher that is interested in starting up a technology course I am there to give a little demonstration. Kids need the chance to express themselves in a digital language of ideas. Thanks to all for DraftSight.

    Thank Richard!

    We’re very excited about this product here. As a former technology instructor, DraftSight is a no brainer in a school system as far as I am concerned. Why spend your valuable budget money on a product when you don’t need to. DraftSight is free, and we are here to help! The DraftSight Community is a great resource if/when you need assistance with this product. Thanks for spreading the word!
