Draftsight: free CAD software

Good quality open source free CAD software has been difficult to find in the past, but earlier this year 3DS released Draftsight, a product that comes close to industry heavyweight AutoCAD.
"DraftSight is a professional-grade, open 2D CAD product for users who want a better way to create, edit and view DWG files. DraftSight is easy to use and is available for professional CAD users, students and educators to download and activate for free."

It supports DWG files so even if you just want to open AutoCAD files to view, Draftsight can do it.

  1. I just graduated high school and will be attending college in the fall. I was wondering if there are any good beginners CAD programs that are available and you could recommend. Or maybe a just one with a tutorial. I have already worked with programs such as AutoCAD and Solidworks.
