AutoCAD® LT from Autodesk provides a complete set of 2D CAD tools for creating accurate professional drawings and models in AutoCAD® .DWG format.
For over 26 years AutoCAD® software has delivered productivity-enhancing features. Benefit from AutoCAD® LT software's consistent 2D drafting focus with the improved 2013 release.
AutoCAD® LT software's genuine DWG file format facilitates data fidelity and compatibility between AutoCAD software. As one of the most commonly used file formats (especialliy in 2D), DWG enables common file communication with clients and colleagues. Please note however that the DWG format has changed many times over the years and the latest AutoCAD LT cannot read all earlier DWG file formats. If you need this facility consider Bricscad or RealCAD LT as an alternative or get a DWG file translator such as CAD Wizard.

[Q] What's the difference between AutoCAD LT and full AutoCAD?
[A] AutoCAD LT is designed for 2D drafting and does not support the running of plug-in productivity enhancing applications. Full AutoCAD on the otheer hand has 3D and runs third party applications. We find most people considering the purchase of AutoCAD LT (these days) will typically purchase Bricscad, RealCAD LT or IronCAD instead
AutoCAD LT also has a slightly reduced set of drawing tools and LT does not have the sheet set managment tools and there is no network license available.
[Q] Would I be better to buy Bricscad or RealCAD instead of AutoCAD LT?
[A] Maybe. If you need a very AutoCAD-like software that works natively in DWG then Bricscad will probably be a better choice because it can run 3rd Party applications and it has 3D and more drawing tools. It is also less expensive and opens DWG files from very early versions of CAD which AutoCAD LT can not.
If you are happy to learn a faster and arguably better software than either AutoCAD LT or Bricscad then RealCAD LT would be the best choice as it is easier to learn, feature rich and generally faster to draw with.
[Q] Will product activation allow me to use the software on multiple machines?
[A] Autodesk recognizes that some users may need to operate their software when away from their usual work location. To accommodate this need, the product activation technology allows an employee to install the software on a second computer owned by the employee's company, provided it is for use away from the employee's usual work location, the software is used only by that employee and no other, and only one of the two copies of the software is ever in use at any one time. Consult the Autodesk Software License Agreement for details about using the software on a second computer.
[Q] Has the AutoCAD LT software DWG file format changed for AutoCAD LT 2013?
[A] The file format for AutoCAD LT 2013 is different from previous versions. AutoCAD LT 2013 can also save drawings in a wide variety of formats, ranging back to R14 DWG and R12 DXF. If you require the ability to work with earlier files than these you should consider Bricscad or RealCAD LT
