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.

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.
