2 © 2006 Autodesk 2 AutoCAD LT 2006 Overview Background Target Customers Key Benefits What’s New in AutoCAD LT 2006 How to Sell AutoCAD LT Benefits of cross-grading to AutoCAD 2006 Resources

3 © 2006 Autodesk 3 AutoCAD LT 2006 What is AutoCAD LT? The world’s leading 2D design and drafting software... For design professionals, who require full DWG file format compatibility and.. …do not need to customize their software, through automation or third-party applications. “AutoCAD LT meets our needs fully as a 2D production drawing tool…”  Architect/IT Manager, Tate and Hindle “I decided that 3D and customization were not important for my daily work and purchased AutoCAD LT.”  Mark Grenell, Architect Background

4 © 2006 Autodesk 4 AutoCAD LT 2006 AutoCAD LT Background  1.78 million copies sold to date  Revenue second only to AutoCAD  11 languages  More than 49 countries Background

5 © 2006 Autodesk 5 AutoCAD LT 2006 Target Customers Users  Architects  CAD Technicians  Designers  Engineers  Project Managers  CAD/IT Managers Industries  Building  Manufacturing  Geographical Information Systems Customer

6 © 2006 Autodesk 6 AutoCAD LT 2006 Target Customers Design Professionals in all industries:  Manufacturing 30%  Building 44%  Mapping/Infrastructure/Civil 11%  Other 15% Customer

7 © 2006 Autodesk 7 AutoCAD LT 2006 Key Benefits  Efficient Drafting  Easy Sharing  Simplified Plotting  New Features Workshop Key Benefits

8 8 AutoCAD LT 2006 What’s New in AutoCAD LT 2006 New key features at a glance

9 © 2006 Autodesk 9 AutoCAD LT 2006 Heads-Up Design Dynamic Input & Pointer Input Customers design here AutoCAD LT asks for input here “As a new user, I find it distracting to keep going back and forth from my design to the command line. It interrupts my train of thought.”  Split attention between graphics screen and command line  New users require special training  Experience users overlook unused options Problem

10 © 2006 Autodesk 10  Modern intuitive interface  Provides dimension and command option information  Keeps focus on design “I think this is totally in the right direction. I’ve always thought you need to get to the command line info without using the command line.” Heads-Up Design Dynamic Input & Pointer Input Solution

11 © 2006 Autodesk 11 Annotation Hatching “You haven't really lived until you’ve had to determine the area of a 10 acre parking lot full of landscape islands (and leave out the islands).”  Time consuming to:  Edit hatch boundaries  Set hatch origin  Calculate hatch areas Problem

12 © 2006 Autodesk 12 Annotation Hatching  Improved Hatching  Hatch area  Hatch positioning “The ability to modify hatch position makes it easier to try out different design alternatives” Solution

13 © 2006 Autodesk 13 Annotation Dimensioning Problem  “It’s not possible to dimension on the extension line of an arc.”  “We want to flip dimension arrow direction individually for both ends on each dimension.”  “Support the initial length symbol for linear dimensions as shown.”  “We need centerlines support for dimension extension lines…” DIN 406 Part 11, Figure 136

14 © 2006 Autodesk 14 Annotation Dimensioning  Arc Length dimensions  Flip dimension arrows  Initial Length Symbol  Variable Extension Linetypes Solution

15 © 2006 Autodesk 15 Graphical Calculator Problem  Customers are not aware that CAL command exists  If they are aware it exists, they do not understand its capabilities  CAL functionality is not easily available in properties palette and other areas where it is needed

16 © 2006 Autodesk 16 Graphical Calculator  New GUI based calculator  Places calculated values into object properties or command options  Use object properties for calculations  Performs unit conversions  Allows customers to store and use variables and constants Solution

17 © 2006 Autodesk 17 AutoCAD LT 2006 User Interface GUI based engineer calculator Customizable workspaces Temporary overrides keys User customizable scale list Roll-over highlighting Toolbar and Tool Palette locking Added recent command input to right click Command Enhancements New Join command undo for copy, trim, extend, offset, chamfer and fillet Rotate and copy Scale and copy Trim and extend using crossing windows Offset to current layer Customer Requests Tables Sum/Ave/Count values across a row Sum/Ave/Count values down a column Mathematical expression support (+, -, /, *, ^, =) Cell mathematical formula based off of other cell values Copy & Paste table with formulas from Excel Text Mtext bullets MText numbering and lettering Improved In-place editing Width slider control

19 © 2006 Autodesk 19 AutoCAD LT 2006 AutoCAD LT Release Comparison Matrix (Continued) What’s New

20 © 2006 Autodesk 20 AutoCAD LT 2006 The Autodesk Advantage Autodesk is one of the world’s leading digital design companies serving customers in industries where design is critical to success: building, infrastructure, digital media, and location services. AutoCAD ®, AutoCAD LT ®, Autodesk Map ®, Autodesk ® Land Desktop, AutoCAD ® Mechanical, Autodesk ® Architectural Desktop and non- AutoCAD-based products, such as Autodesk ® Revit ®. How to Sell

21 © 2006 Autodesk 21 AutoCAD LT 2006 The DWG Advantage  DWG file format compatibility is important to today’s design process in most companies  AutoCAD LT customers know that they will be able to share their drawings seamlessly, creating an efficient design process.  Autodesk drives the development of the DWG file format  Many competitors cannot develop applications fast enough to maintain DWG compatibility.  AutoCAD LT customers win with increased ROI How to Sell

22 © 2006 Autodesk 22 AutoCAD LT 2006 The 2D CAD Market Limited DWG Compatibility DWG Compatibility Basic Data Sharing Secure Data Sharing AutoCAD LT stands apart! How to Sell

23 © 2006 Autodesk 23 AutoCAD LT 2006 What you should tell your customers  DWG is widely used world-wide for exchanging digital design data  AutoCAD LT enables users to save their work in true native DWG file format  It’s not about price, but about the value AutoCAD LT brings to customers and the compatibility of design data. How to Sell
