Autocad Vs Autocad LT- Difference Between Autocad and Autocad lt

What is Autocad LT ? :

AutoCAD LT is the lower cost version of AutoCAD, with reduced capabilities, first released in November 1993. Autodesk developed AutoCAD LT to have an entry-level CAD package to compete in the lower price level. AutoCAD LT, priced at $495, became the first AutoCAD product priced below $1000. It is sold directly by Autodesk and can also be purchased at computer stores (unlike the full version of AutoCAD, which must be purchased from official Autodesk dealers).

As of the 2011 release the AutoCAD LT MSRP has risen to $1200. While there are hundreds of small differences between the full AutoCAD package and AutoCAD LT, there are a few recognized major differences[21] in the software’s features:

3D Capabilities: AutoCAD LT lacks the ability to create, visualize and render 3D models as well as 3D printing.
Network Licensing: AutoCAD LT cannot be used on multiple machines over a network.
Customization: AutoCAD LT does not support customization with LISP, ARX, .NET and VBA.
Management and automation capabilities with Sheet Set Manager and Action Recorder.
CAD standards management tools.
AutoCAD LT 2015 introduced Desktop Subscription (rental) from $360 per year

There are some distinct differences between AutoCAD Lt and its big brother, AutoCAD. For many, the main thought is, ‘oh, it’s if you just want to do 2D or 3D, AutoCAD Lt is just for 2D and full AutoCAD is for 3D’, but that is just the tip of the iceberg when exploring the differences. Full AutoCAD has many more advantages over its cut down version and this applies to both the Windows versions and the Apple MAC versions.
