Photorealistic rendering & visualization

TurboLux is a state-of-the-art rendering technology which exploits Physically Based Rendering (PBR) techniques. PBR models light and materials based on the laws of physics, accurately simulating the flow of light, resulting in eye-popping images of photographic quality. Support for PBR-compatible Materials for TurboCAD is included in the 2022 release, with over 800, fully-editable TurboLux materials in the TurboCAD Materials Palette. PBR Materials extend the traditional color mapping with normal, metallic, roughness, and height maps. Combined with shaders for matte, glossy, glass, car paint, and metal, these new materials enable renderings to look more realistic by simulating real world imperfections such as scratches, roughness, smudges, or noise.

  • TurboLux - Heterogeneous computing

    TurboLux uses OpenCL and/or CUDA to run on any number of CPUs or Nvidia-based GPUs that are available on your machine. This highly optimized rendering layer provides performance that scales nearly linearly with the number of available computing devices. Using this high performance device layer, TurboLux extracts the most out of your computer’s available hardware, which results in faster, high quality rendered images.

  • TurboLux - Denoise

    As a progressive based rendering engine, TurboLux samples pixels towards a final rendered solution. Sometimes this sampling process can produce fireflies or unlit pixels. Using a Denoiser is one way to remove these artifacts to accelerate progress towards a final, better quality rendered solution in a dramatically reduced period of time.

 
  • TurboLux - Caustics

    It is an optical phenomenon where light shines through typically glass or water materials only to reflect and refract into additional light rays of different wavelengths and colors. TurboLux supports advanced caustics by providing bidirectional path tracing to trace light not only from the camera but also from the lights in your scene to render the complex lighting scenes. This is particularly beneficial in Interior Design.

  • TurboLux™ - Materials

    TurboLux™ with a library of over 800, fully editable Materials, including a new Gemstones category, and an expanded Metals category.

What’s New in TurboCAD Professional 2022? Back to the top

TurboCAD 2022 Professional contains over two dozen New & Improved features and is highlighted by the inclusion of a new Physical-Based Rendering (PBR) engine, TurboLux™. The Professional version has a strong focus on Visualization, 3D Modeling, and Architectural enhancements.

 

RENDERING AND VISUALIZATION

 

TurboLux™

TurboLux™ is a state-of-the-art rendering technology that exploits Physically Based Rendering (PBR) techniques. PBR models light and materials based on the laws of physics, accurately simulating the flow of light, resulting in eye-popping images of photographic quality.

Visualize - Cutting plane

Dynamic Cut Plane has been implemented for Visualize Render. Three pre-defined cut planes (XY, YZ, XZ) have been added to the Drawing Setup and Dynamic Cut Plane options. The ability to hatch section contours has also been added to the Dynamic Cut Plane Drawing Setup options. Users can now use Dynamic Cut Plane while in Draft render. The 3 cut planes introduced (XY, YZ, XZ) make it easy to define the specific plane for the dynamic cut. The settings added to the Drawing Setup window help the user to select different filling pattern styles for the cut plane.

Visualize - Auto update current view

A new option “Auto update current view” has been added to the Draft Render in Camera Properties. When this option is enabled, the dialog parameter changes are immediately applied to the active window. Previously, the changes were applied only when clicking the “OK” button after selecting the options. But with this new option, the user is able to have immediate results when selecting/deselecting different options before even clicking the “OK” button.

Visualize - Visual styles settings

Visual Style Settings have been added to the named views. New draft rendering visual styles have been added to the Camera Properties -, X-Ray, Conceptual, Shades of Gray.

Visualize - Camera extended parametets

A new set of extended parameters have been added to the Draft Rendering page of Camera Properties. These parameters are available for 3 visual style modes i.e., X-Ray, Conceptual, Shades of Gray. Each visual style has its own set of parameters. When changing the parameters, you can switch the styles from one to another. The extended parameters include Edge and Face mode/color-related settings.

 

ARCHITECTURAL

 

AEC Radial grid

A new AEC Grid “Radial Grid” has been added to the Architecture menu. This Radial grid is a new tool that makes it easy to align other radial architectural objects in the drawing, such as curved walls and columns.

Slab edge styles suopport

A new category Slab Edge Styles has been added to the Style Manager. Now users can edit the slab edge styles via a new edit mode. Using edge styles, you can specify dimensions, such as the overhang length, and the orientation and angle of the edges. With this new feature, it is now possible to edit slab edge style by activating “Edge Style” option in the edit mode.

AEC grid keep label value

A new property ‘’Keep label value” has been added to the AEC Grids. The new option adds the ability to save the axis name without changing it, regardless of the order of the axes in the grid. With this option enabled, the user can automatically move the axis to any position without having to rename it.

Wall/window/door tools improvement

A new local menu option “Anchor to AEC Grid” has been added to the walls, windows, and doors. When this option is enabled, the ends of the architectural object anchor to the AEC grid. The end position of the object changes in accordance with edits made to the AEC grid.

Roof improvement

A new local menu option “Overhang” has been added to the Roof tools. User can now edit overhangs for each side of the roof.

 

PERFORMANCE, USER INTERFACE & USABILITY

 

Undo manager palette

A new Palette “Undo Manager Palette” has been added to the list of palettes. The palette displays all the steps performed and allows the user to switch back and forth. The steps breakdown allows users to switch from one drawing state to another with a single click bypassing intermediate states.

Render studio enhancement

Render Studio Enhancements include UI scale support and Advanced Render dialog updates.

Search option for drawing and program

A new Search bar has been added to both the Program Setup and Drawing Setup dialog boxes which allows users to find the various options contained in each dialog. The search bar makes it easy for the users to search for different options available in the whole Drawing Setup or Program Setup dialog boxes rather than finding them manually.

Keyboard report enhancement

A few enhancements have been made to the Keyboard Report. Row highlighting on mouse hover, local menu description, and command icons for Default (dark) and Classic (light) themes have been added to the report.

Selector - New option "Keep size"

A new option “Keep size” has been added to the 2D and 3D Selector’s Local Menu. When enabled, this option scales the distances between the selected objects, without scaling the objects themselves; so that is, not changing their size.

Program setup, perferences - New option "Highlight selection in renders"

A new option “Highlight selection in renders” has been added to the Preferences of Program Setup. This option allows the user to disable the drawing of the selected objects in all camera modes, except GDI modes (WireframeNative Wireframe and Hidden LineHidden Line). Enabling this option can cut down on render time and allow for a more accurate selection of objects to be rendered.

TurboCAD content server palette

This new palette, which links to the new TurboCAD Content Server gives the user online access to hundreds of thousands of different CAD and graphics content, which can then be easily dragged and dropped into your TurboCAD drawing. Currently, the Palette can access more than 700,000 mechanical, parametric parts. These symbols fully support international standards such as DIN, KR, ISO, ANSI, and ASME. Over time, additional content, including House Plans, architectural details, and Materials, will be added to the server, and therefore accessible via the TurboCAD Content Server Palette.

 

2D DRAFTING AND EDITING

 

Ability to now interrupt wireframe GDI draw

TurboCAD now has the ability to interrupt native GDI draw by pressing the Esc key. This is very helpful while editing a large drawing. Previously, without this ability to interrupt, the user would have to wait to finish a GDI draw after each action. A Progress Indicator has also been added.

Smart dimension tool improvement

The Smart dimensioning tool is now fully associative between Model and Paper spaces. Changes made to a Smart Dimension in Model Spaces will automatically be updated inside of any Viewport in Paper space which includes that Smart Dimension.
