AEC Objects?

I am currently using AutoCAD Architecture at work which allows me to use AEC "smart" objects (walls, windows, doors). This is a staple in my AutoCAD experience. I am planning on branching off and starting my own business and was hoping to only purchase AutoCAD LT, vs the mega expensive ACA, seeing as I don't use any of the other 3D tools. Is there any way to use these AEC objects with AutoCAD 2012? or even AutoCAD LT? Or are these tools exclusive to ACA?

You can view them or plot them but they are only proxy graphics in plain AutoCAD.

Define "use". If you need to draw new objects, you will need AutoCAD Architecture (or MEP). If you need just to view and edit them, you will need only the free "object enabler" to process these special AEC objects.
