Use the symbols browser to quickly locate just what you need, enhanced to now display symbol filenames.
Advanced Editing - Select an object and easily change the geometry in the Edit Objects window. All values appear as whole numbers or decimals and can be entered in any units desired.
Architectural Design Tools - Smart walls - TurboCAD Mac’s self-healing walls automatically join, intersect, and update to speed design. Walls auto-dimension as they are drawn, auto trim wall vertices, and allow for assignment of a hatch pattern and colour.
Parametric Doors & Windows – Choose from 3 door styles (Single, Single Standard, or Double) and 3 window styles (Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill) to drag-and-drop into a wall, and TurboCAD Mac will automatically create an opening in the wall. In addition, users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for precise placement.
Printing & PDF - Use the page layout to view and print your design with up to 4 different angles on a single page. New options Page Layout offer greater control of how the printed document will look.

New Design Tools
- New! Drawing Wizard
A new multi-step wizard helps users quickly set up their drawing, defining unit format, paper size, print, drawing scale annotation settings, text and dimension.
- New! DWG Paper Space & Viewpoints
Like AutoCAD, TurboCAD Mac files now support two drawing areas which include model space and paper space. All modelling is typically done in model space, while paper space is an area typically used to organise data for printing. The paper space sections of a DWG file may contain title blocks and annotations that are associated with the model.
- New! Mark-up & Redlining Tools
Mark-up 2D and 3D objects using line, circle, revision cloud, highlighter, text, rectangular text box and leader.
- New Trim Region Tool
Use this tool to rapidly trim a closed region. Simply click inside or outside to control which side is trimmed.
New! Conic Tools
- Conic section tools allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane.
- Two Point Conic Tool creates a conic by specifying the start and end points plus specification of a rho value
- Three Point Conic Tool creates a conic by specifying the start, end, slope control and the rho value.
- Four Point Conic Tool creates a conic by specifying the start point, end point, slope control point and shoulder point.
New Usability Enhancements
- New! Custom Toolbar Creation
Create custom toolbars for quick access to your favourite TurboCAD Mac tools.
- New! Context Sensitive Help System
Context-sensitive help provides the fastest possible way to get help for any desired tool. Simply place the cursor over any tool then press "F1". This instantly takes you to that tool's explanation in the electronic user guide.
