For now I found a solution:
downgrading jre-9
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/jre-9u0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Strange situation I have jre-8 openjdk installed, and did set this with archlinux-java as default, but with jre-9.0.1-1 installed and jre-8-openjdk as default draftsight still crashed.

It did not crash while debugging with valgrind, just ran really slow. But I have no experience with this.

below here my first comment

For me the same like rahan12 and rvega.

Draftsight opens, if the curser is inside the drawing window, it moves for like a second, then freezes.
I did downgrade xf86-video-intel, it failed with xf86-video-intel-1:2.99.917+796+g04b4f3b7-1, but downgrade did not help.

At 15th October it was still working, I did use it quite some time, although it did crash occasionally.

I have another machine still with kernel 4.13.5-1 and with latest xf86-video-intel-1:2.99.917+796+g04b4f3b7-1, there SP03 is still working, now even with these environment settings:
ws2% env | grep -i desktop
DESKTOP_SESSION=xfce
XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=XFCE
.

Last version : http://dl-ak.solidworks.com/nonsecure/draftsight/2017SP03-1/draftSight.rpm

is working ok for me, just had to modify source url and md5, package builds properly, software activation is ok, and nothing crashes.

I only use draftsight as a dwg to dxf converter to be able to use librecad though.

I'm running arch testing with gdm/gnome-shell on X11 (Didn't try with wayland)

I have the same problem as described by rahan12. :(

I have the same problem and the workaround from jb1 does not work for me.
SP01 was working great for me. SP03 crashes on startup.
I usually use GDM but even in XFCE/Linux-lts it does not work either. I tried using both my Intel or Nvidia GPU to launch Draftsight but to no avail. Exactly the same result with both: freeze straight after startup with greyed out workspace and a transparent/black alert message that cannot be read.

I have resorted to installing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a small partition only to be able to use Draftsight. Very inconvenient but it works. I hope it's only gonna be a temporary solution.

I can confirm that the workaround from jb1 (2017-09-28 07:41) also works for me on linux-lts/XFCE

Here's what I found:

$ draftsight
ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.

*DRAFTSIGHT CRASHES HERE*

*DRAFTSIGHT IS OK HERE*

So I made these changes to get it working:
$ cat /usr/bin/draftsight
#!/bin/sh
unset XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP DESKTOP_SESSION
env vblank_mode=0 /opt/dassault-systemes/DraftSight/Linux/DraftSight

$ cat /usr/share/applications/draftsight.desktop

Hello, i'm french so sorry for my poor english.

I use draftsight 2017SP01, because 2017SP03 crash on startup and 2017SP02 crash on print and now it's says that will expire in 7 days.
Anyone know how to stop that, i can't use newer version.

Before sp3 version, mouse lag was serious.(I use intel gpu hd4000)
But sp3 version, it get better.
Hmm.. still a little lag happen as there are many hatch, but it's ok.
Now I can use draftsight instead of audtocad.
