WHAT'S NEW

USABILITY

Customisable Ribbon Interface:
Users now have the ability to fully customise the Ribbon Interface. You can now Add and Rename Tools, Groups and Tabs. In addition, Tabs may be hidden or renamed, and manually created XML Config files can be directly imported into TurboCAD. UI Themes are also full supported in the Ribbon.

4K Monitor Support:
With new, scaleable vector icons, TurboCAD is now fully optimised for 4K monitors. Through dynamic sliders, toolbar icons, the User Interface and other icons in other part of the UI can be resized to optimize readability on higher resolution displays.

 

Named View Enhancements:
New functionality has been added where users now have the option of associating Layer Sets with Named Views, giving users a much better way to manage Layers Sets.

 

2D DRAFTING AND EDITING

 

Select by Similar
This powerful tool allows users to select any 2D or 3D object type or a Block and then find all occurrences of that in the drawing. Very detailed selections can be made that include parameters such as pen colour and style, brush colour and style, layer, even the selected object's coordinate system. A great tool to use in conjunction with making further global changes to that selected object.

Construct Similar Tool

This tool which takes properties from a referenced object and applies these to the construction of the next object. This tool provides a fast and efficient method to assign object properties such as line fonts, dimension styles, and wall properties with a single click.

Remove Overlapping Entities
The ‘Overkill' tool removes overlapping lines, arcs, text and dimensions, thereby allowing you to simplify drawings by removing duplicate, redundant Entities. Event viewer shows the count of objects that were changed.


Pick Point Hatch
Pick-Point-Hatch now works with gaps in 2D objects. For example, trying to fill an area bounded by a Polyline, when there are gaps in the Polyline. Improvements to pick-point also apply to ADT objects (Walls, Doors and Windows), allowing to similarly fill in gaps between these objects.

3D DESIGN AND MODELING


Surface Extrude
Users can now select flat 3D polylines or 3D curves for Surface Extrude tools such as Revolve. Also, 3D Curve and Curve (2D) are now separate tools.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN


Architectural Desktop (ADT) Objects
ADT objects can now be completely and accurately used with Copy and Linear Array copy tools. For example, the Array Fit Linear now takes into account all of the properties of the ADT object being copied, including Work Plane, Layer, Materials, etc. Previously, this tool could create only one roof object. Now, multiple objects may be created. In addition, the overall processing of all ADT objects in a drawing , including the House Wizard, has been significantly sped up.

BIM Tool
Data collection of IFC files has been improved, the BIM Palette now shows the BIM file structure, and the BIM tool and BIM Palette's UI's have now been more tightly integrated, making these architectural modeling parts of TurboCAD easier to use.

Photorealistic Rendering and Visualisation

NEW! LightWorks® rendering engine and Sun and Sky Shader
The LightWorks rendering engine has been upgraded to v9.3. New properties "sun dir by geo-location" and "dir by geo-location" added to "Sky" and "Sun" shaders correspondingly.

RedSDK to LightWorks Porting 
RedSDK rendered images are now more automatically, accurately and completely converted to a LightWorks rendered image.

Interoperability

AutoCAD 2019 Compatibility
TurboCAD 2019 now fully supports AutoCAD DWG, DXF and DWF file formats.


STL Filter - 3D Print Check
A 3D Print Check option has been added when exporting an STL file. This tool checks a part for common topological errors such as: non manifold edges, duplicated and collapsed facets, open edges, shells and more. The Print Check tool also displays geometry information such as extents, number of facets/vertices, area, and volume.

Features

Powerful User Interface


TurbCAD 2019
 boasts a new variety of excellent user interfaces including a new RIBBON INTERFACE similar to that found in Microsoft Word and the latest versions of AutoCAD. It also features an updated CADCourse INTERFACE with accelerated keyboard shortcuts for all the commands. Further for traditional users the older CLASSIC INTERFACES type are included so that no matter which interface you prefer you will feel comfortable with the new program. Various types of THEMES are supplied giving you the choice of how you want to interface to appear. At the start of the program a pop-up dialog will appear allowing you to easily choose your preference.

Design Director

Organise, access, and explore design alternatives.  The Design Director Palette provides advanced controls for Layers, Layer Filters, creating Layer Sets, setting and saving Work Planes, controlling Named Views, and more to streamline work and enhance productivity.

 

2D Design and Editing


TurboCAD® is rich in professional 2D/3D design tools and drawing aids that speed design.  Create views and viewports of any size and shape. Access extensive paper space and printing options.  Multi-select drawing tool, dimension tools, and more.

3D Surface Modeling


TurboCAD® includes a complete set of 3D surface modeling and editing tools making it ideal for both single part and small assembly mechanical designs.
