      What are the major differences between AutoCAD Release 12 for Windows and AutoCAD LT for Windows?

      Regards

      AutoCAD LT is AutoCAD minus the following.
      Licence is locked to the computer. Cannot be deployed on the LAN.
      X-referencing is not available
      User profile is only for that computer.
      Company standards will have to be customized on each an every computer.
      3D commands are not available. This really does not make a difference since, a serious 3D user would go for a specific 3D software.

      Plus side: The cost is 1/5th.

      You may have a look at Solidedge 2D, which is free, with 2D parametric and constraint based geometry building and can read and write DWG and DXF files.

      I believe AutoLISP is unavailable in AutoCAD LT as well.

      AutoCAD LT is the much more economical version of Autocad and has all those basic versions like like tool palettes, external referencing and many more.But when you come to autocad you have 3d features which is really not there in AutoCAD LT.
