DoubleCAD XT

DoubleCAD™ XT is an AutoCAD LT® work-alike. But free. Frankly - the way of work is a bit different, but If you are an AutoCAD LT® user, DoubleCAD XT will immediately feel familiar.  Familiar menu, menu items, tools, icons, command line, keystrokes... and a familiar intelligent cursor. Even if It's native file format is different - AutoCAD® drawings opens, displays and saves reliably. It uses AutoCAD fonts SHX. But you will miss AutoCAD® linetypes (*.LIN) and also hatch (*.pat). DoubleCAD includes relatively enough chatch patterns, but situation with linetypes is a bit worse. As a big disadvantage we see impossibility of any extending via LISP or via other developing method (perhaps over time it could be changed).

Free version has not any limitations and it is possible use it in real  work. In our opinion, this is one of the most interesting application for 2D drawing and for those who sacrifice a little time it is certainly one of the best free 2D drawing tools. With so many new, innovative features, DoubleCAD XT may be the free AutoCAD LT® upgrade you've been looking for:
