Handles files from ACAD 2.6 (?) to ACAD 2010.
Requires free registration (once a year?) for save and print to work, but
doesn't lead to much in the way of email spam etc.
Does not have VBA, but will run scripts (eg diesel) with only minor
There are some minor differences in how command-line sequences work, but
this is balanced by some useful commands not available in ACAD.
The only (very minor) problem I have found is font compatibility. Easily
fixed by editing properties. (May not occur if you use standard fonts.)
Just getting back in News Rover as my usenet client, so I apologize for the
previous overly brief reply. I use both AutoCAD 2009 and BricsCad. My
Bricscad is a few years old @ version 9. Becuase at times I like to use
dynamic stretch and ability to select multiple pick points, I tend to use
AutoCad more. However, I am 99% sure that hasn't been a limitation in
Bricscad since the version after mine. Since the copy of Acad I use is
through work, there hasn't been a financial incentive to upgrade Bcad so
far. Except for the above issue, I find it is faster, loads quicker and is
completlely compatible with autocad 2007 format. I believe the current
version is up to 2010 file compatibility. For about the same as LT you can
have the works. If I were to upgrade, it would be to Platinum which allows
use of 3D ISO in 2D mode.
