About AutoCAD LT

AutoCAD LT 2D drafting software helps you create, edit and share your 2D drawings. It is specifically designed for small design teams working in the construction, architecture, engineering and manufacturing industries.

Users can automate repetitive tasks with macro commands, automate them with AutoLISP routines and exchange data with other AutoCAD users. Professionals can easily annotate and add dimension to drawings, then print or publish designs to a wide range of popular formats. Features include replicate and autorange objects, create dimension commands, run the powerful polar tracking tool, use built-in Smart tools for easy dimensioning and precision editing with direct measurements, and maintain consistency by setting preferences.

Users can create floor plans, view building in 3D, and create projects with a variety of templates.

I use this program all of the time!!!! Highly recommend.

Reviewed on 2018/12/07

Pros

As an environmental engineer, I work with and create many engineering drawings/figures for municipal client construction and remedial projects and AutoCAD is the most universally used program. It is very simple to use from creating complex multi-layered drawings to simple figures with the ability to drop in pictures (jpegs, gif, etc.) to enhance the project deliverables. I also like the ability to print to a pdf file, which makes it convenient to email deliverables without having to attach all of the different referenced files.

Cons

I don’t have any. It is a less complex program as it doesn’t have the 3D functionality. I would recommend using the AutoCAD LT version as it can be smoother/quicker to operate than the AutoCAD or AutoCAD Architectural versions.

This is my number one program, I am in the design field, I have used this program for almost everything. Greating banners, files for laser cutting, shop drawings, 3d rendering. etc.

Pros

This program is great for anyone in the design industry. It helps create accurate drawings for architectural purpose, interior design purpose and generally anything that needs measurements. It is easy to use, and the commands are accessed easily by just entering first few letters. EG line command, just type in L and you will see a little box pop up asking you if you are trying to make a line.

Cons

Finding that trying to change the work space to a custom work space causes the CAD to crash. So it would be great to fix that glitch, as every individual works differently on CAD and likes to have certain sets of command tools on there model space.

You can generate building plans quickly, in the same way you can design the plans of the houses complying with the established standards.
Generate scale plans for decision making regarding the creation of adequate housing.

Pros

It allows me to digitize plans quickly and safely, I can identify each element in the plane by creating its attributes individually. I can also associate the information with an existing database. Your final product is usually compatible with other CAD programs. For the cartographic production it is excellent, since I can easily manipulate all the symbols and regroup them on the map individually.

Cons

It takes a lot of memory on the computer for processing. The acquisition of the license is very expensive. It is portable to us. High performance computers are required to work comfortably. It does not allow the georeferencing of satellite images.

AutoCAD LT Review

Reviewed on 2022/04/05

Overall, AutoCAD LT is a good software for Drafting, Layout generation and 2D modelling.

Overall, AutoCAD LT is a good software for Drafting, Layout generation and 2D modelling.

Pros

1. 2D Modelling and providing dimensions to a drawing is very easy in AutoCAD LT.
2. Importing and exporting files to/from AutoCAD LT is also very easy.
3. Whether it is a simple design or a more complex design, AutoCAD LT allows its users to scale model and remodel as many times as required by the users.
4. The file recovery feature is also excellent.

Cons

1. There is no option for 3D modelling. Users can only view open and view 3D models created in the full version of AutoCAD.
2. It consumes more processing power, memory and video card memory.
3. The mechanical tool-sets and architectural tool-sets are missing.

Autocad is essential for my work.

Reviewed on 2020/02/09

Pros

I've been working with Autocad for over six years and never thought about changing. It meets all my needs and, when I can't find a solution for a project, I have the answers by searching the Internet. I have experience in 2D projects, but I have already tried 3D tools and found it easy to learn. I have no problems with slowness and crashes, unlike other software I've tested.

Cons

The license is very expensive, which prevents many small companies from purchasing software that, in my opinion, is the best on the market for the preparation of civil engineering projects.
