DraftSight gets a minor beta 1.3 update
DraftSight, an increasingly popular free CAD application for Windows, Linux and Mac, got a new beta release with a couple of relatively minor changes.
The changes in question are print configurations and support for 3D mouse devices such as 3D Connexion.
The print configurations can be applied to DWG files, so that you don't have to configure printing again in the future. This is nicely covered in a screencast from Dassault Systems:
As for 3D mouse devices, DraftSight supports Zoom Direction (Vertical and Horizontal), Pan/Velocity/Axis (clockwise and counter clock wise) and Dominant mode. The latter is used to filter out events from the least used modes. You can also control sensitivity.
Builds for Windows, Linux and Mac are available here. Ubuntu installer will complain about the DEB file, but install it anyway.
