Hi Craig, Yes, a lot of the features are identical between Revit and Revit LT. Revit LT is designed more for small businesses, though, who have less need of the collaboration (simultaneous editing) tools. Revit LT will also only be available as a standalone license (no network licenses). As you see on the comparison chart (http://usa.autodesk.com/revitlt/features/) some more advanced modeling, analysis, and rendering tools are also reserved for the full Revit. I'll post something next week further outlining the differences.

Last year, I told you about a change to the Snap behavior in AutoCAD LT 2012, where it would only go into effect if you were picking points, not selecting objects. The idea behind this was that we think snap... Continue reading

If you regularly use wipeout objects in your drawings, you’re probably familiar with the longstanding dilemma: Frames on or off? If a wipeout’s frame is on, you can edit its shape, but it will also plot—possibly defeating the point of... Continue reading
