RE: Autocad LT

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
we were in the same position months ago.  having run acad with
softdesk structural and later adt, we realized we had more software
than we really needed.  we purchased lt2005 and it works well for
what we need (just a drafting tool).  through discussion groups, we
were able to download free 3rd party features such as layer isolate.
lt2005 does not have all the bells and whistles as big-boy acad but
it does service our needs.

Subject: Autocad LT

    While on the topic of Bentley, has anyone on the list tried Autocad LT?  We had a salesman come by yesterday with a quote to upgrade our Autocad 2000.  WOW!  We paid $2600 for R14 and a couple of hundred to upgrade to 2000.  The current "Legacy" upgrade plus required subscription (if its required, why don't they just add it to the price an be done?) is about $2900 per seat.
    We don't use third party software anymore, so I have been considering using LT.  Any thoughts?
