Although the new AutoCAD LT 2010 may not offer everything its big brother does, it's a great choice if you only need to do 2D drawings.

+DWG is the most commonly used design format
+Save in older file formats for collaborators using older versions
+Supports PDF files as an Underlay
+Improved Layer Management
+True Color Support
+Publish to PDF format for anyone to view project even without having a CAD program
+You can upgrade if you are using AutoCAD LT 2007 or higher

Keep in mind the limitations of the LT Version of AutoCAD 2010 such as:
-No 3D drawings are possible, 2D only
-No 3D modeling, so no walk-through or photorealistic rendering
-No Network Licensing

Bottom Line: AutoCAD LT 2010 is a great product if you need to do 2D drawings. The price point is probably worth it to professional users because of the new options and being able to open all DWG formats, as well as save in older formats in case you collaborate with others using older versions. Those unable to afford the Full AutoCAD package may find the LT version meets their needs.

I receive CAD files from their architects and I have to import them into Adobe Illustrator and manipulate them to use in marketing materials.    The CAD files I receive are usually bogged down with details that I don't want and ultimately, I spend …
