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.
TurboCAD Mac 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.
