Download DIA software drawing free technical drawings

Here is some great freeware technical drawing software.

It allows very easily the creation of diagrams (network, electrical circuit, computer program, heating). Symbol libraries (pump, exchangers, etc.) are supplied with the installation.

The download link points to the official site to automatically obtain the latest version.

Download here:

:?: I suggest, if it does not bother econologists who already have their software, that we all switch to this software to make our various diagrams or drawings. So we could easily exchange the sources of these diagrams or better make "personal" libraries ...

What do you think?

Edit: there is also [ur = https: //www.econologie.com/telecharger-qcad-151-derniere-version-libre-et-gratuite-du-logiciel-de-dao-telechargement-4039.html] QCad to download: this is the free version of AutoCad [/ url]

Hi Christopher!

Great, I think it would indeed be a good thing, exchanging files and common libraries would be good tools for communicating with each other. I try this step!

Hello,

I use this little software intermittently at work to make sketches.

I'm still having a hard time getting used to it, I used to make sketches in Excel, and I must say that out of habit, I often go back to Excel because I know how to use it .

Otherwise, it's a good prog:

Advantage on Excel:

: Arrow: the multitude of export formats (practical when you have to communicate with one person in jpg, another in pdf without going through paint and screenshots.

: Arrow: easily usable libraries

... (please complete)

Disadvantages compared to Excel:
: Arrow: I have not yet found how to rotate shapes, I know how to take shapes by default, but in Excel, a simple rotation, and presto you rotate it at 30 °, 45 °, ...
If it exists I haven't found it.

: Arrow: that's just for moaning, it contains a base of predefined symbols, but there is no hydraulics. Obviously it's always what we need that is missing 8) : Mrgreen:

... (it's up to you, too)

It is in any case a nice practical program.

Uh I tried to export my first test in .pdf and apparently you have to be careful with the scale of the original drawing because it is not "adjusted" ... but I have not looked for more than that for the moment. ..

+1 ... apparently it's not possible to "rotate" we can only do symmetries ... strange ... It is pkoi some symbols exist horizontally and vertically (valves for example) ...

Uh ... there are still some symbols:

To prevent the lines from automatically attaching to the objects, you must uncheck "magnetic objects" in the "View" menu

Hello,

can the files be exported in Autocad format in .dwg or .dwt or .dxf?

Under which extension does the program save its files?

Thank you

just a little reminder that seems important to me, at least to me. Dia has absolutely nothing to do with freeware. Dia is free software, licensed under the GPL, a free software license system. For regulars of Microsoft, there does not seem to be any difference and yet it is significant, since the sources of the software are available to everyone, which is never the case with freeware software, most of the time stuffed malware.

To do justice to the free community (see for example, the DEBIAN social contract), it would be interesting to remember that the publication system of this site (GUPPY) as well as its forum (PhpBB) are also free solutions.

That said, Dia is one of the many excellent free software programs. I recommend this site to try other tricks

Uh ... freeware can't be Open Source then?
If that's the case, I used this term a little too generalist ... I apologize to the designer of the slide ...
