Key Features Back to the top


Complete Set of 2D/3D Drafting, Design, and Modeling Tools
TurboCAD employs a large selection of line, arc, curve, spline tools, and other expected tools, so that no matter the situation you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. When used with TurboCAD snaps, modification tools, and drawing aids you will be able to quickly draft and document your designs.

  • Drawing Tools
  • Editing/Modification Tools
  • Dimension Tools

Context-Sensitive Help
Right-click to instantly access recently used tools, recently entered values, and a quick way to change or reset reference points. If a TurboCAD tool is active, the context menu provides a contextual toolbar as well, with additional similar tools and functions.

Flexible User Interface
Turn on and off only the tools you want to see as you work in a familiar, windows-like, customisable interface. Display TurboCAD’s comprehensive set of 2D/3D design tools with full explanations in the beginner mode. Switch to intermediate or expert mode to gain screen space as you become more familiar with the program.

Page Set Up Wizard
Breeze through questions designed to help you define your drawing’s size and orientation, units of measurement, printing scale and viewpoints

Advanced Handle-Based Editing
Save time and draw more accurately, more quickly. TurboCAD provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating, moving and aligning objects.

Snaps & Geometric Alignment Aids
Draw lines quickly and let snap tools automatically align them with the closest center point, end point, or dozens of points you choose. Geometric alignment aids improve snap indicators.

Window or Crossing Selection
Users can select objects with a mouse by using the Window or Crossing methods similar to AutoCAD®. Drag the mouse from left to right to invoke Window mode and select only objects that are entirely within the blue window. Drag the mouse from right to left to invoke Crossing mode and select only objects that touch the green Crossing window.

2D & 3D Text Editing
Create and edit text without leaving your drawing. Plus, choose from thousands of colours for text and background.

Floating and Shaped Viewports
Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. You can even render within a viewport.

Multiple Drawings/Multiple Paper Space
Build multiple drawings, each with multiple paper spaces, with independent settings (grid units, etc.); then use tabs to quickly switch between paper spaces.

Convert to Arcs Polyline
Convert a Bezier or Spline curve into a polyline composed entirely of circular arcs, or entirely of circular arcs and linear segments.

Stellated Polygo
Create star-shaped polygon objects in two clicks! Adjust properties for a variety of starred shapes.

Table Objects
Create a table on the fly, or import a table from DWG/DXF files.

Fill Schedule Wizard
Create and fill the schedule table with drawing information.

House Wizard
This big, time-saving tool creates a preliminary room-by-room design of a home, complete with closets, doors, garage and even decks!


Intelligent Walls
Self-healing walls automatically join and intersect as you design in 2D or 3D. View wall dimensions with a single-click.

Automatic Wall Openings
“Slide” doors, windows, arches or any shape to create “openings” in walls with linked 2D and 3D views. Even set vertical alignment properties. Dimensions display as doors and windows are inserted, showing the distance to and from the wall ends for easier, more precise placement. Plus, corresponding offset fields display in the Inspector Bar.

Parametric Doors & Windows
Window and Door dimensions can be scaled to meet your design needs. Further customise with materials and colours.

Hatch Patterns and Fills
Choose from over 70 hatch patterns (including colours) to visually identify various components of your drawing. Bitmaps, like your company logo, or gradient fills may also be used with transparency.

Fractional Dimensions
Display fractions in stacked, diagonal, or in-line layout to accommodate your personal preferences.

Point Marker Tool
Automatically number objects such as rooms, doors or windows. Great for creating legends, call outs, or simply mapping points and adding notes to your drawings.


2D & 3D Boolean operations
Use two existing objects and combined, subtracted, intersected, or sliced to create a new object. Select multiple entities for addition or subtraction.

Move a 2D object around a revolution axis to create a 3D object.

Pull complex 3D models from simple 2D shapes.

Extrude shapes along a path, per fect for drafting irregular objects.

Chain Polyline
Chain Polyline allows for faster design by allowing you to connect intersecting objects or portions of objects into a single polyline which can be then extruded, revolved or swept.

Colour Transparency
Screen back the colour of an object in the foreground to display or emphasize hidden details in the background.


Lightworks® 8.3 Photorealistic Rendering Engine
TurboCAD Deluxe includes powerful, easy-to-use rendering and visualisation technology by LightWorks. Users can define physically accurate materials such as glass, mirrors, and polished or reflective surfaces with ray tracing, so anyone can create stunning photorealistic designs. Progressive, ray-traced rendering improves workflow by generating fast estimates of an image and an early preview of light settings. This engine also supports multi-threading, taking advantage of multi core processors so the turnaround time for calculations is much faster.

Materials Library
Choose from or create your own realistic material patterns, transparency, reflectance, and texture types and settings as well as multiple wrapping options to make designs look like they will in real life.

Realistic Lighting Effects
Multiple light types and settings cast hard and soft shadows and reflect accurately off reflective surfaces with ray tracing allowing you to create photorealistic designs. Fog and scattering mediums are also supported.

Design Director
Organise, access, and explore design alternatives easily in the Design Director Palette. Create layer templates, light templates, camera templates and powerful layers for use on different designs. Layer filters, that are .dwg compatible, help you manage large, complex drawings with ease. TurboCAD Deluxe layers are AutoCAD compatible, including a layers dialog based upon ‘Design Center’.Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. You can even render within a viewport.

Multiple Drawings/Multiple Paper Space
Build multiple drawings, each with multiple paper spaces, with independent settings (grid units, etc.); then use tabs to quickly switch between paper spaces.

Colours, Brushes, Bitmap and Gradient Fills, and Transparency
TurboCAD allows for hatch patterns and gradients to be layered with transparency. Custom bitmaps, such as your company logo, may be used as well. This empowers you to much more clearly and precisely communicate construction or assembly details.
