LogiCursorTM
The LogiCursorTM thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily as you draw. Combine 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. 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.


Mesh Modeling Tools

Create 3D mesh designs from multiple points. The Quad Mesh tools allow users to create primitives, extrusions, coverts, lathes, and meshes by points.


Surface Modeling Tools

Quickly model complex 3D objects with advanced design and modification tools. Primitives, complex and advanced surface tools, as well as surface modifiers and transformation tools are included.


ACIS® Solid Modeling Tools

The powerful ACIS 3D solid modeling engine and file filters fully supports 64 bit DLLs to create realistic, complex 3D objects as well as data crucial for engineers.


History Free Editing

  • Parametric Doors, 3 styles - Single, Single Standard, or Double
  • Parametric Windows, 3 styles - Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill
  • Slab Tool that attaches slabs to existing walls. Control thickness and offset.

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

NEW! Multi-threading Support
Multi-threading is a technique by which an operation can use several processors to complete the command. TurboCAD Mac Deluxe now uses multi-threading in the following workflow areas: 

  • File Imports
  • Facet calculations for display lists

UPDATED! ACIS® R26 Modeling Kernel
We've updated the ACIS solid modeling engine by two major releases with improvements in the following areas:

  • Multi-threading of key features
  • Booleans
  • Constant and Variable Radius Blends
  • Direct Face Operations (used for Push/Pull)
  • Shelling

UPDATED! BOM Dialog
Creating a Bill of Material (BOM) now has options for specifying the following table settings:
  • Font Type
  • Font Size
  • Number of Decimals

UPDATED!
 Interoperability Components (IGES, STEP,SAT)
Precision data translators were developed by the world's foremost expert in Interoperability-Dassault Systems (creators of CATIA & SolidWorks). 3D Interop integrates advanced features such as Geometry Repair, Topology Repair, and Tolerance Resolution.
 

NEW! 3D-PDF Export 3D-PDF Export
An exciting new feature in TurboCAD Mac v10 (Deluxe and Pro) is the introduction of 3D PDF data export. 3D PDF is a file format that is supported by Adobe allowing you to share CAD data with Acrobat Reader, a highly popular PDF viewer. The 3D PDF export has the following options: 

  • Share facets or NURB data
  • Share 2D data (hatches, dimensions, curves, and text)

NEW! KeyShot Live Linking Support KeyShot Live Linking
With KeyShot Live Linking, you can use TurboCAD Mac side by side with KeyShot to produce stunning renders. Our Live Linking implementation also introduces an industry first to create "Presentation Drawings".
  • Share mesh, surfaces, and solids
  • Option to share 2D annotation data as 3D
  • Materials assigned in KeyShot retained by object names

NEW! Magnet Tool Magnet Tools
Quickly snap one part to another with the new Magnet Tool. The part is moved from its current location, orientated, and centered within the selected face.

IMPROVED! Infinite Plane Objects (sizeable, transparent)
Infinite Plane objects are used in TurboCAD Mac to trim, section cut, and intersect objects. However the default Infinite Plane is sometimes too difficult to visualize intersections through a body due to its small display size. With TurboCAD Mac v10, you can now resize Infinite Planes and set transparency to better visualize how the plane relates to other geometry in your file.


NEW! Draw View Type for Easy Scaled Prints
Draw Views are now only dependent on the viewing area and layers. This is a change from previous versions where populating a New Draw View was accomplished by cutting and pasting objects. Additionally, new tools are introduced to dynamically pan and zoom the viewing area within a Draw View.

Layer Duplicate


A new command to duplicate a layer and all the objects in that layer is now available through Concept Explorer. To access this command, place your cursor over the layer you want to duplicate, right click and select the Duplicate command. If you Duplicate a sub layer, the new duplicated layer is promoted to a first level layer.

SVG Import and Export


Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. V11 now supports importing and exporting to this new format.

The new SVG Import/Export provides an alternative to using the Adobe Illustrator format for sharing vector based (scalable) graphics.

Note: For importing SVG files from Adobe Illustrator use a unit setting of mm (or inch) and a DPI setting of 72 to get the correct scale.

Simplify curves


Some design tasks prefer higher order curves such as arcs, circles, and/or ellipses over lines. For example, sharing data with a plasma or water jet cutting CNC system or extruding a profile into a solid and later adding edge treatments. V11 introduces the Simplify Curve tool to assist in this task. Covert Lines or Polylines into:
  • Arcs
  • Circles
  • Ellipses
  • Splines
