I use AutoCAD 2010 LT and am always thinking of upgrading but I did notice something on the list. I do get notifications of changes to a external reference. If a Ext. Ref. changes and the changes are saved, then the host drawing will have a balloon pop up notifying me of the change.

Just something I noticed.

We’ve gotten this question a ton at Managed Design (we’re a reseller). If you don’t need any of the following four features, LT might be right for you:

– 3D Capabilities
– Network Licensing
– 3rd Party Add-Ons
– LISP Programming

AutoCAD LT won’t do these things, so if you need them, you may want to consider the full package. Full details here:

Hi there,

I am going to be using SMART Scaffolder, a program for scaffolding design. I need to use AutoCAD aswell to import drawings, however i am having difficulty understanding whether i will need the full version or just LT. Will LT allow me to design scaffolding?
