AutoCAD vs. AutoCAD LT and AutoCAD Design Suite

AutoCAD software is a powerful 2D and 3D design tool. Buy it separately or as part of AutoCAD Design Suite, which includes additional raster-to-vector conversion and 3D rendering tools. AutoCAD LT software delivers 2D drafting tools at a cost-effective price. All AutoCAD products provide the reliability of TrustedDWG™ technology.
