TurboCAD Deluxe is powerful and complete 2D/3D CAD software. Use the setup wizard, snaps and alignment aids to quickly layout your design. From the modern user interface, choose from beginner, intermediate or advanced modes to access hundreds of drawing, modifying, dimensioning and annotation tools. Materials, lighting, and photorealistic rendering let you create powerful presentations and explore design alternatives. Plus, extensive file support, including Trimble® SketchUp and the latest AutoCAD DWG/DXF filters, make it easy to share your work with others. It's everything you need to create presentation-ready home designs, technical models, mechanical illustrations, educational projects and more.
Rapidly create construction lines in 2D and 3D with powerful dynamic display.
New! Stellated Polygon
Use this tool to create Stellated Polygon objects and rounded Stellated Polygons.
New! Convert to Arc Polyline
Now new to Deluxe! Convert to Arc Polyline.
Improved! Associative Viewpoint Dimensions Use layout to create associative dimensions to model elements through viewpoints and retain which update as the model changes.
Improved! Dimension Function
Linear and angular dimension tools now allow you to specify a fixed length for line extensions and the value for that length.
New! 64-Bit & 32-Bit Compatibility
Whilst Pro Platinum & Pro have been both 64 & 32 bit compatible, this is a brand new feature to the Deluxe version.
New! Print Window
Effortlessly create printouts by specifying any desired area of a drawing.
New! Super Selector Modes:-
New to Deluxe! STL Filter
For rapid prototyping with 3D printers.

Includes CAD Fundamentals Free
It's easy and fun to learn TurboCAD with over 200 interactive video tutorials. It's like having your own personal tutor helping you get the most out of your TurboCAD software.
TurboCAD employs a large selection of line, arc, curve, spline tools and other expected tools, so that no matter the situation you've got access to the right tool for the job. These tools and drawing aids quickly and easily help you draft your designs.
Below is only a small sample of the drawing, modifying and dimensioning tools:-
Arc, Bezier Curve, Circles, Command Line, Construction Lines, Double Line, Ellipse, Line, Multiline, Parallel Line, Perpendicular Line, Points, Polygon, Polyline, Revision Cloud, Spline Curve, Trim, Wall and more.
Right-click to instantly access recently used tools, recently entered values and a quick way to change or reset reference points. If a TurboCAD tool is active, the context menu provides a contextual toolbar as well, with additional similar tools and functions.
Flexible User Interface
Turn on and off only the tools you want to see as you work in a familiar, windows-like, customisable interface. Display TurboCAD's comprehensive set of 2D/3D design tools with full explanations in the beginner mode. Switch to intermediate or expert mode to gain screen space as you become more familiar with the program.
Page Set Up Wizard
Breeze through questions designed to help you define your drawing's size and orientation, units of measurement, printing scale and viewpoints
Advanced Handle-Based Editing
Save time and draw more accurately and quicker. TurboCAD provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating, moving and aligning objects.
Snaps & Geometric Alignment Aids
Draw lines quickly and let snap tools automatically align them with the closest centre point, end point, or dozens of points you choose. Geometric alignment aids improve snap indicators.
Window or Crossing Selection
Users can select objects with a mouse by using the Window or Crossing methods similar to AutoCAD®. Drag the mouse from left to right to invoke Window mode and select only objects that are entirely within the blue window. Drag the mouse from right to left to invoke Crossing mode and select only objects that touch the green Crossing window.
2D & 3D Text Editing
Create and edit text without leaving your drawing. Plus, choose from thousands of colours for text and background.
TurboCAD Deluxe includes practical tools tailored to architects, builders and civil engineers. Design and showcase floor plans, decks, kitchens, bathrooms, room additions and more.
This big, time-saving tool creates a preliminary room-by-room design of a home, complete with closets, doors, garage and even decks!
Self-healing walls automatically join and intersect as you design in 2D or 3D. View wall dimensions with a single-click.
Automatic Wall Openings
"Slide" doors, windows, arches or any shape to create "openings" in walls with linked 2D and 3D views. Even set vertical alignment properties. Dimensions display as doors and windows are inserted, showing the distance to and from the wall ends for easier, more precise placement. Plus, corresponding offset fields display in the Inspector Bar.
Parametric Doors & Windows
Window and Door dimensions can be scaled to meet your design needs. Further customise with materials and colours.
Hatch Patterns and Fills
Choose from over 70 hatch patterns (including colours) to visually identify various components of your drawing. Bitmaps, like your company logo, or gradient fills may also be used with transparency.
TurboCAD Deluxe offers innovative tools tailored to mechanical engineers and designers. Design everything from engines and mechanical parts, to circuit boards, patent drawings and more.
2D & 3D Boolean operations
Use two existing objects and combined, subtracted, intersected, or sliced to create a new object. Select multiple entities for addition or subtraction.
Move a 2D object around a revolution axis to create a 3D object.
Pull complex 3D models from simple 2D shapes.
Extrude shapes along a path, perfect for drafting irregular objects.
Lightworks® Photorealistic Rendering Engine
TurboCAD Deluxe includes powerful, easy-to-use rendering and visualisation technology by LightWorks. It allows users to define physically accurate materials such as glass, mirrors, and polished or reflective surfaces with ray tracing, so anyone can create stunning photorealistic designs. The updated Lightworks engine provides progressive, ray-traced rendering which improves workflow by generating fast estimates of the image and an early preview of light settings. This engine also supports multi-threading, taking advantage of multi core processors so the turnaround time for calculations is much faster. Anti-aliasing for geometry and materials is also improved.
Choose from or create your own realistic material patterns, transparency, reflectance, and texture types and settings as well as multiple wrapping options to make designs look like they will in real life.
Realistic Lighting Effects
Multiple light types and settings cast hard and soft shadows and reflect accurately off reflective surfaces with ray tracing allowing you to create photorealistic designs. Fog and scattering mediums are also supported.
TurboCAD makes it easy to maintain your intellectual property investment and share your work. Open, import, or embed up to 21 file formats and export 23, including newly updated .DWG/.DXF (AutoCAD®) and .SKP (Trimble SketchUp™).
Not used TurboCAD before so I wasn't sure what to expect but I definitely wasn't disappointed with this excellent, full featured CAD package. Read morePublished 13 months ago by jazz
Very poor user guide and pathetic online videos that seem to be out of date. Best I have managed after one day is a line and a rectange. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Greggers
The different lay out takes a while to get used to, but still a good and cheap way into 3d drawing.Published 16 months ago by terry wood
