    Post REVIT DWG files to AutoCAD LT

    We use both Revit Architecture and AutoCAD LT. Can we convert Revit elevations to AutoCAD LT? What are the steps? Also, can Revit convert AutoCAD LT sheets?

    I don't see why not. AutoCAD LT is used for .dwg files correct?
    You simply export 2D views and sheets to .dwg files, and you should be fine, haven't tested it though.

    Note: it will need to be 2D views only as LT doesn't do 3D.

    LT will open drawings with 3D content and you can view it, you just won't have tools to edit and/or create this data in LT.

    Thanks for the clarification, I wasn't aware, I've never actually used LT.
