Layers and Layer Sets to organize and more easily edit your design
Over 38,000 2D/3D symbols and parts are now included for AEC, Mechanical, Electrical, Process Plant and Piping design. Simply drag-and-drop to speed design. Hatch patterns and colors, as well as 2000 materials are also available.
The LogiCursor™ thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily as you draw. Combined with snaps to quickly locate tangent and perpendicular points or align to x, y, z axis edges, faces or workplanes, making TurboCAD Mac ideal for modeling in 3D or quickly laying floorplans, diagrams and more.
Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools
TurboCAD Mac offers a large selection of 2D tools, so that no matter the situation you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. Included you’ll find line, arc and curve tools as well as circle, ellipse, polygon, and spline tools. New conic tools allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane. Plus access text and dimensioning tools, fillet and chamfer tools, 2D modifier and transformation tools.
Advanced Tools for 3D Design & RenderingRoof Tool, 2 types – Hip and Flat. Control pitch and thickness
TurboCAD Mac Deluxe goes beyond Designer allowing user to create 3D models without sacrificing speed or ease of use.
Verify your Designs
A set of sophisticated surface analysis tools will help you maintain design integrity by providing critical information about your designs such as evaluating the smoothness of one or more surfaces, useful for identifying surface irregularities. Then choose from any of four curvature plot styles Gaussian, Mean, Min Radius and Max Radius.
Complete File Compatible & Conversion Options Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Just as easily, export technical drawings from TurboCAD to one of the many supported file formats to share your work. You can also use TurboCAD’s powerful batch conversion tool to batch convert a collection of drawings to other file formats.
Import or export from these popular formats
3DS, Adobe® EPS, Adobe® Illustrator (export only), Adobe® Photoshop®, BMP, AutoCAD® 2013 DWG/DXF, IGS, JPG, PICT, PNG with alpha channel export, ACIS® SAT, Spline, STL, STEP, TIFF, TEXT, Truespace COB (import only). Import Filters - EPS, Facet, PDF, PhotoShop, SketchUp, Export Filters - OBJ, VRML
Printing, Publishing & PDF
TurboCAD Mac Pro offers a variety of ways to share your work. The new Print by Layer Tool is extremely useful when you have multiple sets of data within one file that needs printing. For less complex jobs, a new Print Window option allows users to simply drag the mouse over the area of your design you wish to print. Use page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page, controlling text size and more. Save designs as single or multi-page PDFs for sending via email, or export to one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and more.
TurboCAD Mac 8 is now fully 64-bit compatible, so you can load, process, and render much larger parts and models, as previously you were limited to around 2.3 GB of model data in virtual memory. The result is smoother workflow, faster drawing display and manipulation, and the ability to work with parts and models of nearly any size.
New ACIS R24
The powerful ACIS 3D solid modeling engine and file filters in TurboCAD Mac Pro have been upgraded to R24. The version fully supports 64 bit DLLs for better performance. This update also enhances several of the 3D solid modeling features based on this engine as well as the core translators for improved interoperability when file sharing.
New Quad Mesh Tools
A new tool palette has been added to TurboCAD Mac Pro v8 with an entirely new set of tools for creating quad mesh primitives, extrusions, coverts, lathes, and meshes by points.
Improved 3D Linear Duplicate
The Linear Duplicate tool creates copies of an object based on specifying rows, columns, and spacings.
Improved 3D Polar Array
For more challenging design tasks, the Linear Duplicate tool can be used to create patterns of 2D or 3D objects in relation to a primary point or object. Apply elevation offsets to quickly create a more complex design, like a spiral staircase.
TurboCAD Mac Pro 8 greatly increases your ability to print much larger, more data intensive files.
Improved Deep Select
This improvement allows you to independently select and modify elements within a group.
New Cut List BOMs
Now you can assign Cut List Properties (Description, QTY, Length, Width and Thickness) to a BOM. The new Cut List Properties template as been added to the predefined BOM data set tables. Objects assigned this set of attributes will display them when the BOM is placed into the drawing or model sheet.
New Customizable Grids
You now have an option to display the workplane grid as a polar or ISO grid. You can also change the grid orientation by any angle. Use the new Grid Properties dialog box under the Workplane menu to explore the different options.
Improved Space Mouse Support
Updated support for a SpaceMouse using the latest drivers.
Improved Keyboard Shortcuts
You can now use shortcuts keys within the Concept Explorer, to set the gripper location, and for toggling mesh controls.
TurboCAD Mac Pro v8 now uses Cocoa Compiled Code and CoreGraphics. This major code rewrite replaces the old Carbon framework, phased out by Apple, resulting in a more stable application.
Improved DWG/DXF Support for AutoCAD 2013
Files filters have been updated to support import and export of the latest AutoCAD 2013/2014 file formats.
Improved STL filter
Better support of collapsed facets for more reliable output to 3D printers.
