  • Assembly Mate - Mate planar faces. You can specify an offset distance between mated faces.
  • Assembly Align - Align a face of two solid objects and supports cylindrical, spherical and planar faces.
  • Assembly Insert - Align and mate the faces of two solid objects. The align faces must be cylindrical and the mate faces must be planar. This tool is very useful for inserting bolts into holes.

Part Tree

TurboCAD Mac Pro offers a fully editable, hierarchal part tree for Solids and Surfaces. The Part Tree can be viewed as a selective UNDO/REDO tool: adjust the parameters of a bend, for example, without having to UNDO the design steps that have been made to the model since the parameter of that object were originally set. Each subsequent step will be applied correctly on the newly updated geometry.

Powerful Photorealistic and Sketch Rendering

Add materials, lighting including special effects lighting, and environmental effects to create stunning photorealistic renderings. High Dynamic-Range Images (HDRI) are supported as well as export of poster size images. You can even select a sketch render styles like cartoon, colour wash, pencil, mosaic and more for an artistic effect.

2D Printing

Feature Highlights:

  • Thirteen Geometric Constraints
  • Dimension Constraints
  • Variable and Equations
  • Constraint Animation
  • Auto Constrain
  • Animate Dimension and Constraints

 
 

NEW! Tool Icon Sizing

You can now modify a tool palette to use larger or smaller icons. Right click on the tool bar header to display a popup menu for “Change Icon Size”. This menu now provides options for 64,32,24 and 16-pixel sized icons. The default icon size is 32x32.

NEW! Layer Duplicate

A new command to duplicate a layer and all the objects in that layer is now available through Concept Explorer. To access this command, place your cursor over the layer you want to duplicate, right click and select the Duplicate command. If you Duplicate a sub layer, the new duplicated layer is promoted to a first level layer.

NEW! SVG Import and Export

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. V11 now supports importing and exporting to this new format.

The new SVG Import/Export provides an alternative to using the Adobe Illustrator format for sharing vector based (scalable) graphics.

Note: For importing SVG files from Adobe Illustrator use a unit setting of mm (or inch) and a DPI setting of 72 to get the correct scale.

NEW! Lightworks Texture Integration with OBJ, 3MF, 3DS, and SketchUp

Lightworks Photo Rendering now supports rendering texture images imported from OBJ, 3MF, SketchUp, and 3DS file formats. These file types can simply be opened from Open dialogue.

NEW! High Resolution Printing for Objects with Textures

Prints involving objects with textures now internally use Lightworks to generate the image for the printer, providing a high-resolution output.

NEW! Skinning with Center Line Path

Skinning is the process of constructing a NURB surface between sections. Skins in TurboCAD can be open resulting in a NURB Surface or closed creating a Solid. V11 introduces the ability to specify a path. The path defines the flow of the surface between the sections. Specifying a path means you may be able to define less sections which may produce a more overall smooth surface. Restrictions - Path must be one G2 smooth curve - Path must be perpendicular at a section intersection

NEW! Simplify curves

Some design tasks prefer higher order curves such as arcs, circles, and/or ellipses over lines. For example, sharing data with a plasma or water jet cutting CNC system or extruding a profile into a solid and later adding edge treatments. V11 introduces the Simplify Curve tool to assist in this task. Covert Lines or Polylines into: Arcs, Circles, Ellipses, Splines.

 


NEW! 
Edge Features

Edge features introduced in V11 provide a means to rapidly define parametric edges used in wood, marble, or granite designs.

Some predefined edge treatments include:

  • Cove
  • Rounds
  • Rounds with Beaded Offset
  • Full, Half, and Beaded Ogee
  • Waves
  • Bullnose, Half Bullnose
  • Custom Edge 

NEW! Stopped Chamfer

Stopped Chamfers are a new solid modelling feature in V11. A Stopped Chamfer replaces an edge with a bevel, typically for decorative purpose. The bevel starts and ends by a user specified value. Parameters used to define a Stopped Chamfer are:

  • Chamfer Length

  • Distance from Start

  • Distances from End The transition rolls off using a smooth arc simulating the path of a router bit. As with other features, the user can modify any of these parameters during the design process to explore alternative shapes quickly.

NEW! Surface from Laws

V11 introduces the ability to use parametric formulas to design NURB shapes. Formulas are defined by users specifying how x, y, and z relate to a parameterized equation (UV). For example, a simple Paraboloid NURB surface is defined by U and V through the three parametric formulas: f(x) = U*cos(V) f(y) = U*sin(V) f(z) = 0.2*U^2 Some predefined formulas available from a drop down for the designer include:

  • Sine Wave
  • Paraboloids
  • Moebius strip
  • Kline Bottle
  • Double Spring
  • Barrel Spring
  • Hour Glass Spring
  • Sine or Twisted Tubes

NEW! SPUR Gear Creation

This feature is available in Optional Powerpack Module. The spur gear teeth in TurboCAD use an involute curve. The involute curve is the curve traced by a point on a straight line with rolls without slipping. Spur Gears in TurboCAD are defined with the following parameters.

  • Number of Teeth
  • Module
  • Pressure Angle
  • Cone Angle
  • Clearance
  • Involute Samples
