AutoCAD LT 2006

What is autocad lt l.jpg

The world’s leading 2D design and drafting software . . .

For design professionals, who require full DWG file format compatibility and..

…do not need to customize their software, through automation or third-party applications.

What is AutoCAD LT?


  • “AutoCAD LT meets our needs fully as a 2D production drawing tool…”

  •  Architect/IT Manager, Tate and Hindle

  • “I decided that 3D and customization were not important for my daily work and purchased AutoCAD LT.”

  •  Mark Grenell, Architect

What’s New in AutoCAD LT 2006

New key features at a glance

AutoCAD LT 2006

Heads up design dynamic input pointer input l.jpg


Heads-Up Design Dynamic Input & Pointer Input

  • Split attention between graphics screen and command line

  • New users require special training

  • Experience users overlook unused options

Customers design here

AutoCAD LT asks for input here

“As a new user, I find it distracting to keep going back and forth from my design to the command line. It interrupts my train of thought.”

AutoCAD LT 2006

Heads up design dynamic input pointer input10 l.jpg


Heads-Up Design Dynamic Input & Pointer Input

  • Modern intuitive interface

  • Provides dimension and command option information

  • Keeps focus on design

“I think this is totally in the right direction. I’ve always thought you need to get to the command line info without using the command line.”

Annotation hatching l.jpg



  • Time consuming to:

    • Edit hatch boundaries

    • Set hatch origin

    • Calculate hatch areas

“You haven't really lived until you’ve had to determine the area of a 10 acre parking lot full of landscape islands (and leave out the islands).” 

Annotation hatching12 l.jpg



  • Improved Hatching

    • Hatch area

    • Hatch positioning

“The ability to modify hatch position makes it easier to try out different design alternatives”

Annotation dimensioning l.jpg



  • “It’s not possible to dimension on the extension line of an arc.”

  • “We want to flip dimension arrow direction individually for both ends on each dimension.”

  • “Support the initial length symbol for linear dimensions as shown.”

  • “We need centerlines support for dimension extension lines…”

DIN 406 Part 11, Figure 136

Annotation dimensioning14 l.jpg



  • Arc Length dimensions

  • Flip dimension arrows

  • Initial Length Symbol

  • Variable Extension Linetypes

Graphical calculator l.jpg


Graphical Calculator

  • Customers are not aware that CAL command exists

  • If they are aware it exists, they do not understand its capabilities

  • CAL functionality is not easily available in properties palette and other areas where it is needed

Graphical calculator16 l.jpg


Graphical Calculator

  • New GUI based calculator

  • Places calculated values into object properties or command options

  • Use object properties for calculations

  • Performs unit conversions

  • Allows customers to store and use variables and constants

The dwg advantage l.jpg
The DWG Advantage

How to Sell

  • DWG file format compatibility is important to today’s design process in most companies

  • AutoCAD LT customers know that they will be able to share their drawings seamlessly, creating an efficient design process.

  • Autodesk drives the development of the DWG file format

  • Many competitors cannot develop applications fast enough to maintain DWG compatibility.

  • AutoCAD LT customers win with increased ROI
