Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been using LT for over a month now, and I'm more than happy with everything it offers, and everything it doesn't. The simple statement here is that if you do not need to render in 3D, LT is for you. As it is for me.

Let's face it, LT is a slight step down, but for the money, it is quite the bargain for the steps it takes for you in professional drafting. Either way you look at it, you are playing with the big wigs because you can now speak their language. With full DWG compatibility, you are able to associate yourself and others with the most popular file format. If you are dealing with people with limitations, you are the one with the ability to provide previous formats for them to utilize, not the other way around. With LT you can use anything. And if the people you are providing any of this for have nothing remotely possible to use any of your creations, well, you simply export a PDF version, or even JPG and TIF images. In some cases, you can cater to Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. So, obviously, people you are sharing your work with do not have to own this software. They only need it to interact with your project.

The customization features of the program is top-notch. The software offers so many powerful features, but it's great to be able to sort and organize to your visual preference. For my needs, it is above and beyond exceeding my expectations. Do a comparison of your personal needs, and if you can live without 3D models, and 2D will work, this is a great deal, from a long-time trusted maker, with the best service.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
LT is the "light" version of AutoCAD. The main difference, is that it doesn't allow for 3D modeling. If you only need 2D modeling capability, it is a very viable alternative to the much more expensive full version of AutoCAD 2012. I've used both AutoCAD 2012 and AutoCAD 2011, and for the most part, they are a very effective way to add some power to your drafting, especially when you combine it with a lower-cost 3D modeling solution, of which there are many. I don't have to do much 3D design anymore, but when I do, I use CorelCAD.

Install was pretty easy and although I have previous experience with AutoCAD, the layout is simple enough where first-timers can jump right in fairly quickly with minimal experience. I did experience some crashing and locking up however. I can't even begin to describe how frustrating this is. I installed it separately on two different workstations and both had the same issues. It didn't happen enough for me to change my rating on the product, but it is still pretty annoying. There are not too many visual differences between it and AutoCAD 2011. I hate the Dashboard ribbon, but fortunately you can get around this by selecting "AutoCAD Classic Workspace." I find that things also run much more smoothly by turning off Autocomplete and Dynamic Input. There is a lot of room for customization within the program and you can set things up pretty much any way that is most convenient to you.

I started out doing some simple designs of my office's data flow, and drafted some plans of our office structure. Doing a data flow diagram, I tend to use the copy function a lot.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Update: 14 AUG 2012

Never much of a graphic artist, I've been scribbling on computers since my parents bought me a VTech Socrates console in 1988. Flash forward to 2011 when I needed something a little more sophisticated to draft models. As it happened AutoCAD LT 2012 came down the Vine.

Regarding this powerful but imperfect 2D drafting program, I write from the perspective of a CAD noob. Amazon Vine later offered me Corel CAD , so I've updated the comparison to go with that review.

--Package--

AutoCAD LT comes in a contemporary DVD case with the serial number and nothing else. No manual in print or PDF. All documentation is through the AutoDesk Exchange splash panel.

--Installation--

The program installs quick, goes down smooth, and fills up less than a gigabyte of storage. Take note of the software license; it includes a Not For Resale restriction that lasts three years. The expiration date is tracked in the product information window, found in the About dialogue of the Help bar. Fortunately, AutoDesk has not harassed me with re-activation notices, junk mail, or product pop ups. Unlike most programs I've experienced, it might be a good idea to read the "deployment instructions" online before you install.

--Operation--

From the get go the interface is more overwhelming than Corel CAD, right up there with the clutter of other prosumer applications. I also find AutoCAD's GUI mildly more obtuse than Adobe InDesign; for example, you can see the color and thickness of a selected line in the Home ribbon, but there is no similar field where one can view the coordinates, fill, or dimensions at a glance like you can in Adobe products.
