Litio 2.0 sheet metal - quick start guide

Litio 2.0 works within AutoCAD and GStarCAD as an add-on/pluggin program.


At the moment of the creation of this page, Litio 2.0 works within:

  • AutoCAD (up to) R2021; starting with R 200X (and Mechanical Desktop 200X); only Windows versions.
  • GStarCAD 2016 onwards. Only Windows versions. Recommended: Professional version.

Warning: Litio 2.0 DOES NOT run in Academic, Lite, nor LT versions. LitioLAB was not tested with GStarCAD Standard. Please check LitioLAB 1.0 compatibility with your CAD system (feel free to run the TRIAL version).


Loading and running Litio 2.0 sheet metal

The program can be manually installed by placing ALL of the Litio 2.0 files in the SUPPORT directory of AutoCAD / GStarCAD.


To run Litio 2.0, you first need to load it into your current drawing session. For this type the following in your CAD's command prompt:


    (load "LITIO2")


Load Litio 2.0 sheet metal
in the current AutoCAD/GStarCAD drawing session


Then, to run the program just type:


    LITIO2


Run Litio 2.0 sheet metal
in AutoCAD/GStarCAD


Note: The program needs to be loaded at every drawing session, in which you will use it. If you exit AutoCAD/GStarCAD and enter again, if you open an existing drawing or you start a new drawing, and you want to use the program, you need to load it to the current drawing session.

Great program. (It has) lots of patterns available. We reduced workshop time due to the precision and accuracy of LITIO software. We often have non-standard patterns and with LITIO2 we are always able to solve them. Steve Owen
