I use this program all of the time!!!! Highly recommend.

Pros

As an environmental engineer, I work with and create many engineering drawings/figures for municipal client construction and remedial projects and AutoCAD is the most universally used program. It is very simple to use from creating complex multi-layered drawings to simple figures with the ability to drop in pictures (jpegs, gif, etc.) to enhance the project deliverables. I also like the ability to print to a pdf file, which makes it convenient to email deliverables without having to attach all of the different referenced files.

Cons

I don’t have any. It is a less complex program as it doesn’t have the 3D functionality. I would recommend using the AutoCAD LT version as it can be smoother/quicker to operate than the AutoCAD or AutoCAD Architectural versions.

It's the standard because it's better

We have saved a lot of time with AutoCAD LT with the constant use of library functions. The speed of the program is great, it's faster than all the other programs we've used in the past.

Pros

AutoCAD LT offers features that other similar alternatives does not offer. It permits to have an extensive library of already drawn items. Instead of copying and pasting from previous drawings, we can draw it once, save it in the library and call on it whenever we like.

Cons

With all great things there is usually a cons list, but for now the only con we've seen is the unfortunate trend of companies "forcing" to purchase an annual subscription to the product. Don't get me wrong, Autodesk offers a permanent licence but at a pretty steep cost. It may eventually be cost-effective, but with all the new features, bug fixes and incompatibility issues that arise with every new release, we are "forced" or lured to take the path of an annual subscription. But we are living in 2020, and like in The Mandalorian: "This is the way!".

Reasons for choosing AutoCAD LT

While testing AutoCAD LT it proved to us why it was best, it's faster, easier to use and modern-looking.

Reasons for switching to AutoCAD LT

We needed to find a program that helped us work faster.

It is worth the price and can be used for low level of detail drawings

We had one new employee and we purchased this software for him to help us with basic detail drawings and corrections.

Pros

That it can be implemented rapidly and it has just the basic features, enough to do the job.

Cons

I consider that 3D models could at least be opened and be viewed.

Reasons for choosing AutoCAD LT

Because of the price and the 1 year version that can be bought.

Reasons for switching to AutoCAD LT

Because the whole package we were already using was from Autodesk.

Drawing program

It is an application that I can quickly model an easy 2 dimensional object. I can access this model I designed on the web and mobile.

Pros

Provides the opportunity to create 2D drawings with easy-to-use drawing tools; It is software that supports desktop, web and mobile applications. It gives the user the chance to make 2D drawings very quickly.

Cons

It cannot perform 3D modeling and visualization processes. It cannot perform the creation of images (render output) with lighting, materials and visual styles.

Reasons for switching to AutoCAD LT

Because the models we have made are no longer sufficient in 2D.
