    Default 2018 Autocad LT on sale

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    $285 plus tax for a year. I’m trying it out on a new PC (I’m a Mac guy) that I just bought for my son. It seems good for what I do (2d mostly)

    So are you selling it for that price? or are you asking if it is worth that price?

    What did I type that was confusing? I guess brevity comes with pitfalls.


    2018 LT is on sale for $285 for the next few days (sale ends pretty quick)

    I'm no salesperson......go here.... https://www.autodesk.com/products/au...CED&quantity=1

    Seems pretty good for my 2d requirements. It returns to $380 I think around mid SEP.

    Full AutoCAD is still quite a bit more.

    AutoDesk dropped the RENTAL price. You can no longer purchase a perpetual license.

    If money is of concern there is always the FREE 2D CAD program called Draftsight.

    Correct @ReMark - that $285 is per year, every year. When you quit paying, it quits working. You can pretty much bet that when renewal time comes around, it won't be $285 again.

    There are other alternatives also, such as BricsCAD, which is closer to full AutoCAD (not AutoCAD LT).
    You can still purchase a perpetual license of BricsCAD for as low as US$550. If you choose to never pay again, it works forever.

    If you want a real deal, price-wise, then consider Draftsight Professional. For a limited time it is $99 U.S. for a twelve month license. One neat feature of Draftsight Pro is...

    G-Code Generator: Allows you to create the G-Code for the machining of a part. G-Code is an NC (numerically controlled) programming language used for controlling automated machining.

    CNC abilities, Which can be found in either Bricscad and Advance Steel as well. Just try them for a while.
    But i can be hard to believe the prices of different software are so incredible different, accomplishing the same.
    Imo it is better to buy / sell / develop and learn 'functionality' in stead of timely based 'membership' of a overwhelming amount of software. Just my opinion..

    If your son is in school and has a school e-mail address he can use ANY AutoDesk product for free, to learn on. Just saying
