What is AutoCAD LT?

AutoCAD LT computer-aided design (CAD) software that architects, engineers, construction professionals, and designers rely on to produce solely 2D drawings, drafts, and documentation.

AutoCAD LT is a CAD software used for 2D drawing, drafting, and documentation whereas AutoCAD is a CAD software used to create 2D drawings and 3D models.

While AutoDesk's AutoCAD includes industry-specific toolsets that can provide productivity gains, both AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT include the AutoCAD web and mobile apps.

Being a Solar developer company, AutoCAD LT is widely used within the organization. It is used for drafting, editing and dimensioning of drawing, it is cost-effective software where we are using for 2D effective drawings. It is a great user-friendly software. All of its features are very user-friendly. Using AutoCAD LT we can quickly and easily generate a plan or a design and show details to the client for review and approval. We also use AutoCAD LT to generate design layouts for construction and O&M-related activities.
  • Drafting and layouts generation
  • 2D Modeling and measurements
  • Layers and property features
  • Useful commands like mirror, copy, move, array, offset and rotate etc.
  • File recovery feature
  • All individual lines are to be made a polyline to perform actions like Hatching, filling, etc which is very hectic. - Wish need not make it in the future.
AutoCAD LT is more beneficial for the beginner to start in which it is easy to draft a 2D drawing, and it is comparatively lower in price than the AutoCAD original version. Even it is low in cost than the original version, we can do all detailed drawing drafting with LT version. AutoCAD LT is not suitable for 3D drawing and rendering.

AutoCAD LT replaced standard AutoCAD in my company 2 years ago as the workflow in my firm primarily relies on BIM (using Revit mainly) to issue the design drawings. However, engineers need to usually use AutoCAD LT in order to access files that were issued by 3rd parties organizations. AutoCAD LT offers wonderful level of service when it comes to 2D modeling and casual usage of DWG formats.
The transition from AutoCAD to AutoCAD LT went unnoticeable in my firm, as the extra features in AutoCAD were not of great importance in our work flow.
  • 2D modeling
  • Issuing drawings
  • Smart annotations and dimensioning tools
  • All LISP functions are missing on AutoCAD LT
  • Missing Architectural and Mechanical tool-sets
  • No 3D modeling of any kind
AutoCAD LT is suitable for engineers that uses DWG formats casually and don't rely on AutoCAD as the main tool to issue drawings in the workflow.
AutoCAD LT is best suited for firms that do not use LISP functions in AutoCAD and do not care about 3D modeling. Although AutoCAD LT has other missing functions when compared to standard AutoCAD, these features are of less importance and can't be noticed.

AutoCAD LT is being a software for Engineering, Architecture, and other areas, has resources for CAD 2d design as well as CAD 3d resources integrated, allowing 3D modeling, 3d drawing and preparation of electronic mockups, which in my classes I use to work some subjects such as Pythagoras Theorem, ellipses starting from the axis using 3 points or from the center with two points, and also isometric ellipses that are circles seen in isometric planes. We really use almost the entire year to work on projects and encourage the students.
  • The library feature for all areas is to me AutoCAD LT's extra strong point, it makes it easier to find information within the program itself.
  • The fast solutions and precise development of drawings and projects is also another strong point.
  • I use the floor plans, elevations, sections and the hydraulic designs to work with my students on physics projects.
  • The software allows you to scale model and remodel as many times as you need, from simple to more complex designs
  • Importing and exporting files is also very simple to perform making corrections and quick feedback to students easy.
  • It would be wonderful not to have to worry about AutoCAD's performance settings.
  • Your settings require the best performing processor, memory, and video card because it is these items that keep the software from taking too long to load and run the projects.
  • AutoCAD is a very complex software that requires memorization of command codes.
  • Simpler introduction methods would be excellent because it is very important that people using it have a good understanding of it, and not just work with the software as a program operator.
It is suitable for use with students who are familiar with using a computer. Unfortunately, we still have many people without access and basic knowledge, such as a simple application of the oficce package.
