Graebert GmbH Opens App Store (Like Apple) for CAD

Germany-based Graebert GmbH has taken a play from Apple and announced the CAD industry’s first App Store for the DraftSight market. The store will open in April and will let large and small developers, as well as customers, discover and promote solutions and applications that work with Dassault Systemes DraftSight software.

In article published here a Graebert executive said, a week before the Solidworks World 2011 show, that the Mac is coming back in engineering CAD. The Graebert executive said that DraftSight had gained 30,000 new Mac users from December to January. The Mac was not 10 percent of the DraftSight customer base and growing quickly.

In the article referenced above there is a technical mistake in reference to AutoCAD on the Mac. The article states incorrectly that Autodesk AutoCAD for Mac is still in beta. That is not true, it is released and out and selling.
