Design in 2D and 3D in One Easy to Use Application – TurboCAD Mac Deluxe has all the powerful 2D drafting and design features of TurboCAD Mac Designer, as well as all the additional tools for creating 3D models and shaded view renderings. Plus, TurboCAD Mac Deluxe come with a complete 2D/3D parts and symbols library to drag and drop into your drawings and speed up the design process.
Drafting Assistant & Snaps - The Drafting Assistant thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily as you draw. Combined 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 modelling in 3D or quickly laying floorplans, diagrams and more.
Advanced Tools for 3D Design & Rendering - TurboCAD Mac Deluxe goes beyond Designer allowing users to create 3D models without sacrificing speed or ease of use.
- Mesh tools – create 3D mesh designs from multiple points
- Surface modelling – primitive, complex and advanced surface tools, as well as surface modifiers and transformation tools are all included
- ACIS® Solid modelling technology - Choose from a variety of 3D primitives and access 3D utilities, solid feature tools, solid face modification tools, and more.
1,000 Floor Plans - Start from scratch or choose from any one of these pre-designed floor plans you can customise to make each one your own.
Over 38,000 2D/3D Symbols and Parts - Choose from thousands of parts and symbols to effortlessly add to your design including electrical, mechanical, bathroom, kitchen, construction, LAN, CMOS, doors, windows, counters, fasteners, HVAC and more.
History Free Editing - Easily move, scale or rotate the individual components of your parts without having to maintain a part-tree.
File Interoperability - TurboCAD offers outstanding file compatibility with dozens of industry file formats. Opens and save in the latest .DWG and DXF file formats – 2013/2014.
Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Plus, export technical drawings from TurboCAD into desktop publishing formats, perfect for use in brochures and all other marketing materials.
Import or export from these popular formats: 3DS, Adobe® EPS, Adobe® Illustrator (export only), Adobe® Photoshop®, BMP, AutoCAD® DWG/DXF, IGS, JPG, PICT, PNG with alpha channel export, ACIS® SAT, Spline, STL, STEP, TIFF, TEXT, Truespace COB, Claris CAD (import only)
You can also use TurboCAD’s powerful batch conversion tool to batch convert a collection of drawings to other file formats.
Architectural Design Tools - Smart walls - self-healing walls automatically join and intersect, intelligently to speed design. Additional Walls options include auto-dimensioning (applied as they are drawn), auto trim of wall vertices, and assignment of hatch patterns and colours.
Printing, Publishing & PDF - Use the page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page. New shaded view options for Page Layouts offer greater control of how the printed document will look. Users can also save designs as single or multi-page PDFs in standard or custom sizes for sending via email.
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.
TurboCAD Mac 8 is now fully 64-bit compatible, so you can load, process, and render much larger parts and models, as previously you were limited to around 2.3 GB of model data in virtual memory. The result is smoother workflow, faster drawing display and manipulation, and the ability to work with parts and models of nearly any size.
New ACIS R24
The powerful ACIS 3D solid modelling engine and file filters in TurboCAD Mac Pro have been upgraded to R24. The version fully supports 64 bit DLLs for better performance. This update also enhances several of the 3D solid modelling features based on this engine as well as the core translators for improved interoperability when file sharing.
New Quad Mesh Tools
A new tool palette has been added to TurboCAD Mac Pro v8 with an entirely new set of tools for creating quad mesh primitives, extrusions, coverts, lathes, and meshes by points.
Improved 3D Linear Duplicate
The Linear Duplicate tool creates copies of an object based on specifying rows, columns, and spacings.
Improved 3D Polar Array
For more challenging design tasks, the Linear Duplicate tool can be used to create patterns of 2D or 3D objects in relation to a primary point or object. Apply elevation offsets to quickly create a more complex design, like a spiral staircase.
TurboCAD Mac Pro 8 greatly increases your ability to print much larger, more data intensive files.
Improved Deep Select
This improvement allows you to independently select and modify elements within a group.
New Cut List BOMs
Now you can assign Cut List Properties (Description, QTY, Length, Width and Thickness) to a BOM. The new Cut List Properties template as been added to the predefined BOM data set tables. Objects assigned this set of attributes will display them when the BOM is placed into the drawing or model sheet.
New Customisable Grids
You now have an option to display the workplane grid as a polar or ISO grid. You can also change the grid orientation by any angle. Use the new Grid Properties dialog box under the Workplane menu to explore the different options.
Improved Space Mouse Support
Updated support for a SpaceMouse using the latest drivers.
Improved Keyboard Shortcuts
You can now use shortcuts keys within the Concept Explorer, to set the gripper location, and for toggling mesh controls.
TurboCAD Mac Pro v8 now uses Cocoa Compiled Code and CoreGraphics. This major code rewrite replaces the old Carbon framework, phased out by Apple, resulting in a more stable application.
Improved DWG/DXF Support for AutoCAD 2013
Files filters have been updated to support import and export of the latest AutoCAD 2013/2014 file formats.
Improved STL filter
Better support of collapsed facets for more reliable output to 3D printers.
