Hello all

my office uses the DraftSight program as a free CAD software, but it will no longer be available for free use starting 2020.
i look for recommendations for a new FREE software to install. 

We are civil engineers (Geotecnical engineering ) and we need our program to have these characters:
-not to be an online program
-fit to export files in a DXF format. 
-suitable for printing to a PDF file. 
- suitable for SHP format phonts.


I'll be glad if you had any recommendations!
Thanks

There are certainly some great ones out there. I do know of one that has a free download and kind of second to none https://backtocad.com/solutions/
