Pros: AutoCAD LT will give most users all the CAD functionality they need when on a tight budget. Importing PDF images such as maps and blueprints into and being able to draw over them is all that most users will ever need - be warned price and ease come with limitations, this is not a 3D package but isometric build-drawings are generally what manufactures need to build that part or even machine you need.

Cons: Having "seen" the power of 3D, one can be easily influenced to buy up - especially by a commission hungry salesman.

Overall: Machine parts and plant layouts are completed in a jiffy with this easy to use and quick to learn program. Although 3D packages might offer more of a "wow" factor, often times a 2D package is all one needs.

Pros: I've been working with AutoCAD LT for many years, and have tried the other standard options (Microstation and Vectorworks). AutoCAD LT is hands down the most accurate, quickest to draw with, and most likely to be compatible with everything else.

Cons: The cost - the change to a subscription model is understandable, but it screws over those of us who invested in perpetual licences with maintenance. It's also still pretty hopeless at references, which make any file irritatingly slow.

Overall: I'm an architect, and I use this software for all my drawings. It's a fluid design and presentation tool that simply works.

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.

Overall: 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.

I use this software mostly for P&ID generation and site GAs.

Pros: Its very powerful. I am amazed how accurately the Snap functions predict the points I want to measure/draw to. Most things are pretty intuitive and the changes between versions haven't been difficult to figure out. The command bar at the bottom has remained so I have always been able to do what I want even if I can't find the icon. I really like the "area" function when working with GA drawings.

Cons: I think the "Help" portion could be better with links to tutorials. I've had to general "Google" some items to find answers. I wish mobile version was easier to use. I wish there was a large library of blocks available without having to download them. The software is expensive although probably worth it.

Overall: I have been able to make clean and concise P&ID drawings and layout/utilize GA and elevation drawings of my sites.

Pros: This still has everything I need for 2D drafting, without all the extra frills that I'll never use. It's easy to use once you know all the tools/shortcuts/commands, but there are a lot of them.

Cons: The only downside that I can think of is that the software crashes every now and then, which can be aggravating when you are working on a tight deadline.

Overall: This software is widely used in the drafting industry, so it is easy to send and receive project files between employees/companies.

Cons: Freezes occassionally and restoring isn't as easy as I'd like. I wish it Autosaved!

Overall: AutoCAD LT has allowed me to use all the necessary functions of autocad to perform my daily tasks as an interior designer. While I didn't learn autocad using LT, I found that it was an extremely easy transition and that it really allows me to do everything I need to do.

Pros: AutoCAD LT is a pretty powerful 2D drawing software (3D is available with the regular AutoCAD).

If you're doing layouts and parts designs, this software can handle that with quite a bit of functionality. It's also very compatible - older files can be opened with newer software, and newer software can save files into older formats for others who are not up-to-date.

It's also customizable for the user interface - if you liked the old layout of commands, you can change it. If you like to type your command, you can do that, or if you're better with the mouse and the ribbon, those are also options.

Cons: One of AutoCAD LT's great benefits (Backwards compatibility) could also be holding it back - in order to be compatible it can't quite adapt as quick or as fully as you might expect.

With a relatively new ribbon layout along with mouse shortcuts, these concerns are partially eliminated, but it's not quite as quick and clean as other, newer Autodesk software (for example, Inventor).

Starting up without any experience is a challenge, but this is true for most 2D or 3D design software.

Pros: Has most all features you need for drafting. Autocad sets the standard for drafting software. Most everyone accepts their files and is familiar with it.

Cons: If unfamiliar with Autocad, it can take a little time to get it to do what you need. LT has most features as full blown Autocad but have run into a few that it is missing.

Pros: Most of us don't use all of the tools that AutoCAD has to offer. The 3D portion of it and the rendering capabilities. This was never AutoCADs strong point anyways so AutoCAD lT is a more efficient package. If you are doing simply construction documents this is a cheaper and adequate program to get the job done. Its the tried and true drafting program that everyone in the Architecture and Engineering industry use.

Cons: The only cons are its limited 3D capabilities, which in todays world is pretty necessary. BIM is the way to go and is a much better way to be building nowadays anyways. If you can pony up the extra money, go for Revit.

Pros: ACAD LT has most of the features like Sheet Set Manager and AD Center that are useful for drawing production purposes.

Pros: I have been a CAD user since 2005 but more extensively 2007 when I started working at an architecture firm. I love the xref portion and the ability to layer drawings. I like that users can pay to use on a monthly basis instead of buying license packages etc.

Cons: I wish all AutoCAD LT drawings when in sheet mode had the ability to create a revision history log - which could be turned on/off. Sometimes when the architect/engineer releases new sheets it is hard to keep track of revision history (for guys in the field). The log could contain revision history number and description for 'future' tracking purposes.

Overall: Overlaying MFEP drawings and obtaining dimensions for onsite coordination.

Pros: For people who only likes to work in two dimensions this is the best choice. Another version of Autocad are very heavy and has all that options of 3D and rendering that I never use, but this one is perfect for me. In Autocad LT I can manage a huge range of tools for design any kind of plans, it has also a very easy interphase to work that do not require command line to work, in this version you can use PDF files and Bing maps which is very useful in some cases. The import of PDF files is secure and precise, and has a better objet selection tio improve your work. This is version is what I person like me needs to do plans and excellent designs in two dimensions.

Cons: The software ahs a lot of details, but with some practice you can handle perfectly, this is not a software for people who loves rendering and 3D models, this is for professionals who make plans in two with accuracy and detail.

Pros: The value of this is great. You can't beat the capabilities you get for the cost you are paying. This is purely a 2D drawing method with no 3D features at all. Essentially AutoCAD light. If you are just drawing in 2D it's hard to beat the value of this.

Cons: No 3D elements and not always able to integrate with other features. There are other elements that do not come with this either. Please check what you use in CAD before purchasing to see if you need CAD of LT

Overall: Cheaper version of AutoCAD. Hard to beat for the money.

Pros: The software itself is great, pretty easy to pick up and the versions don't change too much. I use it to draft metal parts and it does what I need it to do. Have also used it in the past for furniture layouts.

Pros: I can draw nautical charts, draw isobats, insert drawings in dxf format, generate surfaces, make sections with different surfaces, make comparisons between surfaces, calculate volumes. You can buy an AutoCAD LT at a much lower price than an AutoCAD Full

Cons: The LT version does not support the generation of 3D objects. AutoCAD LT does not support LISP, ARX or VBA routines, which are software programming languages that can accelerate the design process. Third-party add-ons, which many AutoCAD artists use to assist in drawing and design, will not work in AutoCAD LT

Cons: How many times i find myself clicking the mouse to move, rotate, select, etc. I am accustomed to clicking and dragging and I find myself clicking frequently. I still do this wrong because it is second nature to click and drag.

Overall: I am able to now see the plant layout and plan accordingly.

Pros: Software what gives You almost unlimited possibilities not only for architects and engineers but also for sales companies who want to give consultative selling and support to them.

Cons: It is hard to use it without taking courses but when You have them then You can do same things so much better.

Overall: We use AutoCAD on daily use as our company is the one which is supporting in every stage of building development and construction. I wish I could spend more time on it.

Pros: It a nice software for 3d modeling. I used it to model an enclosure for a product im selling. Great software

Cons: took a little to learn all the small things on how to use it but after i figured most of that out it was smooth sailing from there.

If all you need is 2D drawings, it will get the job done.

Pros: If you are looking for inexpensive software to create 2D drawings, AutoCAD LT will get the job done.

Cons: It's very frustrating to use 2D software if you've ever used 3D software, which is much more powerful. (Of course it's not AutoCAD's fault if you're still using 2D.) That said, the interface needs much improvement--it takes too long to do simple things.

Overall: It allows us to view and modify our old 2D drawings.

Pros: A great work by Autodesk for providing a lite version of Auto Cad it has all the tool for 2-D drawing and can be easily understood by the user.

Cons: Of course it doesn't support 3D drawings,LISP,VBA which are software programming languages but still gets the job done.

Pros: If you've moved into the world of Revit, it is still really handy to have some version of Autocad around. The price is right on LT, though it lacks the ability to assembly a drawing set with the sheet set manager etc.

Cons: As I mentioned, it lacks the features to assembly drawing sets with coordinated tags. It is really just helpful for light drafting and simple sheets.

Pros: This is the standard when you are a draftsman. AutoCAD LT provides you the ability to do high-res 2D drawings.

This is basically the same as the previously amazing program that is Autocad

Pros: This stripped down version of AutoCAD gives you all the tools you need to do basic drafting. If you have no need for all the bells and whistles and want to save some money by not buying the regular AutoCAD, this is the way you should go.

Cons: Since I do use all of the original AutoCAD features my biggest con is the limitations of this software. This is an unfair evaluation though considering the whole point of this software is to provide limited functions.

Overall: AutoCAD is great

Pros: Since moving away from the Architecture industry and going from being a PC user to a MAC user I was happy to see the ACAD LT was available on MAC. Everything works seamlessly and virtually the same as the PC version

Cons: The biggest challenge has been plotting. There are a few bugs with saving previous plots and settings but otherwise it's not prohibitive.

Overall: I can use it on MAC which has been my preferred platform for the past 5 years.

Comments: As the name suggest Autocad LT is a nice tool for light drawing and a tool which is user-friendly.

Only concern is of large companies when you have multiple product licenses you have no option to utilize higher end licenses to gain Autocad LT license.To simplify you can not open Autocad LT if you have Autocad premium design suite license.

LT gives you almost all the features of the full version

Comments: Use to have the full version, but have been using LT for the past few years. Able to do the work needed without the added cost. Not super excited the software companies have gone away from buying the program to more of a lease, but has smaller up front cost. Also, you as the user get more updates and new features this way.
