Pros: Best bang for your money as long as you don't need the 3D and other features from the more expensive editions.

Cons: Somewhat limited functionality which can get frustrating at times. Make sure you go over the features to ensure that it will fit your needs.

Overall: got the job done

Pros: You can do just about everything you'll ever need on this version for cheaper.

Great for students.

Cons: Plots show watermarks as an educational version that may or may not be a problem. We worked in LT at home and used the university full versions for plots.

AutoCAD LT is perfect for me since I only need occasional use and ability to do simple drawings.

Pros: I appreciate that LT is compatible with full version AutoCAD drawings and the low cost allows me to access and maintain my autocad library of drawings without the expense of the full version of AutoCAD.

Cons: I miss some features of AutoCAD and Map but understand this is a limited and lower cost version of AutoCAD.

Overall: The main benefit of this software is being able to maintain access to my past Autocad drawing library and be able to view and modify those as needed. I also use it for the occasional small project as well.

Pros: What I like the most about this program is how easy it is to use. There is a lot to learn but easy to use in the long term. It is simply the best you can use for any aspect.

Overall: Fast to draw any concept you have in mind.

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: Ease of use - I found it very intuitive to complete the majority of the features that AutoCAD has to offer. The price was another determining factor for purchasing this software.

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: Extremely flexible and easy to use. The user is limited to only to his or her own imagination. I use autoCad Lt on a daily basis and I find new things and short cuts everyday.

Cons: Loading time. Really the only thing is loading time, I can turn it on go get a coffee and by the time I get back its almost done.

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.

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.

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

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.

Comments: Ive tried to save money and use other cheaper software, but nothing compares to AutoCAD. This Lt version is just a great deal. Even though they went to a subscription model only, it is still the best for the money.

Comments: I have used CAD a few times over the years. After needing to draft some modifications to a plan, I downloaded CAD LT. It was so easy to pick up and start drafting again. The product was extremely user friendly.

Nice tool for light drawing

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.
