TurboCAD 18 Deluxe
The next generation of high-performance CAD has arrived! New TurboCAD® 18 offers significant improvements to just about every area in the application... including 2D and 3D performance.
TurboCAD Deluxe is comprehensive, professional architectural and mechanical CAD software for drafting, detailing, and modeling. Robust, powerful tools provide greater control and flexibility. Advanced mechanical tools include parametric control over parts, 2D and 3D symbols, patterns, and constrained arrays. TurboCAD Deluxe also includes an integrated suite of architectural tools that are AutoCAD® Architecture compatible. These tools include compound walls, doors and windows with muntins, slabs, roofs, stairs, rails, schedules, and powerful section and elevation tools. Because of the breadth of mechanical and architectural tools, the Deluxe Edition is also perfectly flexible for users whose projects cross disciplines.
New for Version 18
New High Performance Tools
IMPROVED Bi-Directional Selector
UPDATED LightWorks® engine provides progressive, ray-traced rendering, improving workflow by generating fast estimates of images for early preview of light settings. Anti-aliasing for geometry and materials is also improved.
More Productive Architectural Tools
NEW Dynamic Dimensions for Doors and Windows display dimensions as doors and windows are inserted, showing the distance to and from the wall ends for easier, more precise placement. Plus, corresponding offset fields are added to the Inspector Bar.
NEW House Wizard is a big, time-saving tool used to create a preliminary room-by-room design of an entire home.
Programming & Interoperability
UPDATED File Filters including .DWG/.DXF filter enhancements for better AutoCAD 2011 file sharing and an improved .SKP Filter that now reads/writes up to Google SketchUp version 8.
Smarter, Faster Drafting & Detailing
NEW Ray Tool creates rays on the construction line layer to more clearly define your construction geometry. Construction lines are also now editable and can be converted into rays.
NEW Copy in Place tool works on all 2D and 3D objects.
ENHANCED Layers are more AutoCAD® compatible, including a new layers dialog based on ‘Design Center’. Plus, improved ability to turn on/off layers per viewport.
