In practical terms, what are the differences between autocad and autocad
lt?


Thanks in advance,

I use both.. (full version at work, LT at home) Two things that can't do
using LT, 1) 3D modeling and 2) custom Lisp routines. Other than that,
for what I do they are pretty much the same.

That's nice to hear. The ability to develop scripts and to do 3D modelling
isn't worth 2k per seat to me. Does the LT license authorize the users to
use it commercially or is it one of those "academic" licenses?


Thanks in advance,

I would rather get the opinion of someone who already has some experience
with this, as there may be some important aspects that are only noticed
after a lot of practice.


Thanks nonetheless,

AFAIK, it depends on what sort of license/subscription you buy... Not
really sure how Autodesk does their academic software these days - I
'think' that they just do 1 year / 2 year subscriptions for students..
(I might be wrong).

I paid around $700 USD for my home license of AutoCAD LT 2009
(commercial license). Reason I got it for that price was 2010 was coming
out a few week later and people buying the older version got a rebate.

And keep in mind - I think that you can still do some scripting in LT,
you just have to do it in Visual Basic instead of Lisp..

I think the trial versions of the software (both versions) are pretty
much full versions of the software, only they just work for 30-days (or
so)...

Hi,
AutoCAD lt have some limitations.

eg. Not supported 3d (solid editing)
Not supproting customizations (Autolisp, VBA etc.)
There is no express tools and CAD manager tools etc.
LT coast about 25% of Full AutoCAD
LT stands for Lite (this is not heavy as Full AutoCAD)

Thanks,
Sandeep kumar

FWIW, according to Autodesk LT doesn't stand for 'lite', I don't think
it (LT) actually stood for anything. Heard once that it meant 'Lap Top'..
