Compatibility and File Sharing

Whether you’re a team of one or many, you’ll have the interoperability needed to collaborate. We’ve ensured that TurboCAD is compatible with over a dozen popular CAD and Graphics formats. You will be able to deliver files that can be opened and edited by users of AutoCAD®  and other popular design software. Your team will be running like a well-oiled machine.

  • TurboCAD Mac provides compatibility with AutoCAD®DWG and DXF files, from R12 to 2020
  • STL Import/Export for 3D printing
  • SVG Import and Export
  • 3MF Import & Export
  • VMRL 2.0 Texture Support
  • OBJ Texture Support
  • Adobe Illustrator® Import
  • PDF Import
  • SketchUp 2020 Import/Export
  • Collada™ (DAE) Import/Export
  • Complete support for Metric and Imperial units

 

Learning TurboCAD Mac is Easy

While TurboCAD Mac is feature rich, intuitive tools like the LogiCursor™ make CAD a snap by suggesting your next move as you draw.


You also have access to our training tutorials, so you will not have to learn through trial and error. We are experts at creating CAD software and our tutorials will help you to become an expert user quickly.

INTUITIVE DESIGN AND EDITION UTILITIES

Drawing precisely is easy with TurboCAD Mac! It is user friendly and intuitive to work with.

The LogiCursor™ anticipates your next action and guides your cursor to potential point selections in the drawing.

The Gripper adds drag and drop capabilities to make editing designs easy breezy.

 

3D PRINTING TOOLS


TurboCAD Mac Deluxe 2D/3D includes 3D printing tools to prepare and validate your designs to make them 3D printer ready.

3D Print Check
Checks for print viability, displaying warnings or errors to the user. 


Surface Normals Check
Facet normals define the inside and outside areas of a part. If facet normals are pointing the wrong way, the 3D printer may have problems creating the part. This will check for problems and we have several commands that can help you fix it.

Overhang Analysis
This will help you visually inspect modeling areas that may require structural support for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets normals are compared to the work plane direction. Angles that are less or equal to 45 degrees are highlighted as red.

Wall Thickness Analysis

This tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets are examined using ray intersections.

Preview Slices

This interface will help you to slice models given a direction and thickness. The dialog box allows for animation through the slices and single-stepping. Use to verify that a part has closed, non-overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.

Auto Position
The Auto Position tool translates the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.

Support Structure
Manually adds geometry to support material as it is created by the 3D printer. Support structures controls, include Attach Radius, Midpoint Radius, Base Radius, Base Thickness, and Drag base and midpoints to modify structure location.

Show Printer Volume
Toggles the boundary of the default 3D Printer. The volume is defined within the Printer Definitions dialog box.

Printer Definitions
Sets key parameters of the 3D printer, including length, width, and height of the volume accessible by the printer. The parameters in the Printer Definitions dialog box are used for commands such as 3D Print Check and Auto Position.



RECORD, PUBLISH & PDF
 
Record your screen with QuickTime Recording including audio capture for creating videos and tutorials. 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.

 
 

Features

WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 12

3D DESIGN


Split Mesh
This tool allows you to divide a mesh into two portions based on a cutting plane. Split Mesh is an ideal tool for those working with faceted data along with 3D printing manufacturing processes.

Mesh Booleans
This advancement provides a means to add or remove material from a mesh body. Previous versions only allowed Boolean operations on ACIS®- based solids. Now with the introduction of mesh Booleans, you can add/remove material imported from STL, OBJ, 3DS, and SketchUp.

Weight and Volume Tables
Whether you’re designing an aircraft, automobile, or picnic table, weight is key control parameter in a design. Tracking the weight of materials is a key control parameter in design. V12 introduces a new Bill of Material (BOM) attribute specific for creating a summed weight table.

DRAFTING AND ANNOTATION


Best Fit Line and Best Fit Circle
Great for tracing precise curves over rough sketches. This tool will “best fit” a line or circle from a sample collection of points.

USABILITY


Show/Hide Face
The Show/Hide Face tool will hide faces within a part enabling access and visibility into the internal representations of complex models.

AutoLayer


AutoLayer is a tool that will automatically assign an entity to a layer based on the same shape or by entity name. Use AutoLayer to help organize files imported from other applications that do not support layering.

Repeat Previous Command
This “right click” feature will save you lots of time by maintaining a list of last-used drawing commands. Select an item in the list to quickly change the current tool.


INTEROPERABILITY

Now you can work with file types from these other programs:
  • DWG/DXF 2020 Import/Export
  • Adobe Illustrator Import
  • SketchUp 2020 Import/Export
  • Collada (DAE) Import/Export
