Litio 2.0 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).


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")



Then, to run the program just type:


    LITIO2



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

Quick overview and introductory tutorial.


The following is a short overview and introductory tutorial video (3':59"). It explains How to install LITIO 2.0 in a computer and how to load and run it in the current AutoCAD session.

The video shows how to change settings and configuration and deals with English (imperial) units and metric units (millimeters). Finally it shows an actual example of a pattern: parameter input and performing of actual output: 3D representation, 2D fold out development and unfolded development contour.

LITIO2 also works within GStarCAD.


The following is a short video to welcome GStarCAD. With the cooperation of Suzhou Gstarsoft Co., Ltd we prepared the GStarCAD version of LITIO2 sheet metal software.
