Product Description

Product Description

The Ultimate In Professional, Precision CAD for the Mac!

TurboCAD® Mac Pro delivers unparalleled value and productivity in a professional 2D/3D CAD package. Fully integrated 2D drafting tools, 3D surface and ACIS® solid modelling tools, assembly tools, advanced architectural tools, and powerful LightWorks® photorealistic rendering are accompanied by thousands of symbols, materials, decals, and pre-drawn floor-plans. Customisable toolbars, set-up wizard, and context sensitive help enhance usability, while the block manager and the ability to quickly organise layers and layer sets optimise drawing management. Plus, printing and publishing tools as well as extensive file support, including AutoCAD® 2013 .DWG meet the needs of professional architects, engineers, illustrators, designers and more.

What's New In TurboCAD Mac Pro?

New Drafting & Detailing 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! 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! Mark-up & Redlining Tools

Mark-up 2D and 3D objects using line, circle, revision cloud, highlighter, text, rectangular text box and leader.

New! Polygon Tools
  • Slot tool - There are four methods for drawing a slot polygon. The slot polygon is defined by the length and width. The width controls the diameter of a 180 degree arc.
  • N-Side polygon tool creates a polygon from an arbitrary number of points.
  • Curves polygon tools create a polygon from a collection of trimmed, closed curves
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 3D Modelling Enhancements

New! Part Tree

TurboCAD Mac Pro now 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.

Improved ACIS® Engine updated to R22 for superior solid modeling control.

New! Solid Direct Edit Tools
  • New 3D Push/Pull tool quickly creates 3D objects from 2D lines or curves by simply dragging to extrude an enclosed shape. This tool can also be used to resize 3D objects by dragging a face.
  • New Move Face tool will translate one or more faces by a vector amount, while neighboring faces are extended or re-limited to account for the new position.
  • New Lofted Solid Tool creates a solid that is tangent between two neighboring solids. The resulting solid automatically joins the two bodies involved into one new body.
New! Lofting with Guides

Use polylines or curves to set the boundary of a loft.

New! Project Curve Plane Tool

Projects 3D curves into a 2D plane. Default planes include XY, XZ, YZ, Work Plane, and Plane object. Use the construction plane to define user defined projections and depths. Arcs, circles, and ellipses maintain precise shape when projected normal to their definition, otherwise are spline fit to the default curve tolerance (0.001 inches).

Improved! Surface Utilities
  • New Cut Section Tool calculates the intersection of an infinite plane and a curve, surface, or solid. The resulting curve is automatically associated with the plane and surface such that if either is modified the cut curve will regenerate.
  • New Curve Surface Tool calculates the intersection of a curve and surface or solid. The result of a curve/surface intersection is a collection of point objects. The resulting points are by default associative between the curve and surface.
  • New Explode Curve Tool takes an edge of a surface or solid and converts it into an independent but associative curve.

New Architectural Tools

New! Roof Tool

TurboCAD Mac Pro can quickly create a roof that attaches to the top of existing walls. The offset value determines how far the roof extends from the wall. There are two types of roof, hip and flat, available in the Data Entry window, each with different properties.

  • Hip Roof Type - Specify the pitch and soffit size. The roof's pitch is projected above the wall; the greater the pitch, the further the roof projects. The soffit value determines how far the roof extends from the wall.
  • Flat Roof Type - Specify the thickness. The roof's thickness is projected above the wall; the greater the thickness, the further the roof projects.

New! Slab Tool

Create a foundation that attaches to the bottom of existing walls. The slab's thickness is projected below the wall; the greater the thickness, the further the slab projects downward. Another property of slabs is the offset, which determines how far the slab extends from the wall. You can control the slab thickness and offset in the Data Entry window.

New Usability Enhancements

New! Viewpoint Layouts

Display multiple views of your drawing at one time, each with a different orientation. For example, view your design from the top, while also viewing the left side and an isometric view.

New! Gripper Tool

An intuitive graphical widget that attaches to your objects allowing you to dynamically move, rotate and scale objects in 2D or 3D.

New! Custom Toolbar Creation

Create custom toolbars for quick access to your favorite 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.

New! Print Tools
  • New Print Window is a simply way to quickly print just what you want. Enter coordinate values, or simply drag the mouse over the area of your design you wish to print.
  • New Print by Layer Tool is extremely useful when you have multiple sets of data within one file that needs printing. One particular example is printing multiple sheet drawings.
New! 3D Connexion Space Mouse Support

Enjoy greater control when working in 3D. Pan, zoom and rotate your TurboCAD Mac model or camera as if you were holding it in your hand. It's a level of control that's simply not possible with a traditional mouse and keyboard, yet it's fully supported by TurboCAD Mac.

New Content

New! Materials

Nearly 2,000 new materials have been added to the materials library for greater, more photorealistic rendering and visualisation.

New! Decals

Over 37,000 new Decals have been added.

New! Symbols

    • New Polygon Tools - Slot polygon, N-Sided polygon and polygon from curves tool.
    • New Conic Tools, a.k.a. conic section tools, allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane.
    • Connect Curve Tool - Join Option - The Join Curve option replaces the two curves you select with a new spline curve. This tool will also join two polylines
    • Sketch Spline Tool - Samples points as the cursor moves and creates a smooth spline through the sampled data. Once selected this tool has two options, the Sketch Spline tool and Sketch on a Surface tool.
    • Fair Spline Tool - The Fair Spline command provides a tool to globally smooth a curve. Fairing a spline optimally moves control vertices to locations that minimise large curvature variations.

    3D Solid & Surface Modelling

    Advanced 3D Surface Modelling

    Primitives, complex and advanced surface tools, as well as surface modifiers and transformation tools are included for advanced surface modelling - taking your designs further.
    Just some of the surface tools included are:-

    • New Cut Section tool calculates the intersection of an infinite plane and a curve, surface, or solid.
    • New Curve Surface tool calculates the intersection of a curve and surface or solid.
    • New Explode Curve tool takes an edge of a surface or solid and converts it into an independent but associative curve.
    • Skinned Surface fits a network of NURB patches to a collection of curves that act as cross-sections for the final surface.
    • Cover Surface creates a surface from curves connected end to end.
    • Tube Surface quickly and efficiently create a tube or pipe along a reference curve.
    • Revolve Surface allows you to revolve a curve about an existing curve.
    • Fillet Surface blends two surfaces that share an edge or intersection. This tool does not extend surfaces.
    • Draft Surface extends a surface to create a new surface attached to the end of the original surface.
    • Net Surface, which is not the same as a mesh, but rather a nurb surface which creates a surface defined by a grid of M rows and N columns, where M and N are letter identifiers referring to the number of rows or columns.

    Verify your Designs

    A set of sophisticated surface analysis tools will help you maintain design integrity by providing critical information about your designs such as evaluating the smoothness of one or more surfaces, useful for identifying surface irregularities. Then choose from any of four curvature plot styles Gaussian, Mean, Min Radius and Max Radius.

    ACIS® Solid Modelling

    Utilising the newly updated ACIS® R22 solid modelling engine, TurboCAD Mac Pro offers the ability to create realistic, complex 3D objects as well as data crucial for engineers. Choose from a variety of 3D primitives (Boxes, Spheres, Cones, Torus, Prisms and Pyramids etc…), and access 3D utilities (Trim, Add, Subtract, Union, Split, Stitch & Thicken), solid feature tools (Blend, 3D Fillet & Chamfer, Shelling, Bend, Hole & Boss), solid face modification tools (Draft, Match, Offset, Remove) and advanced modifiers (Twist, Stretch,).
    Some of the solid modelling tools included are:-

    • New 3D Push/Pull tool quickly creates 3D objects from 2D lines or curves by simply dragging to extrude an enclosed shape. This tool can also be used to resize 3D objects by dragging a face.
    • New Move Face tool will translate one or more faces by a vector amount, while neighboring faces are extended or re-limited to account for the new position.
    • New Lofted Solid tool creates a solid that is tangent between two neighboring solids. The resulting solid automatically joins the two bodies involved into one new body.
    • New Lofting with Guides tool which use polylines or curves to set the boundary of a loft.
    • Bend Solid bends a solid about an axis through a given radius.
    • Trim Solid tool trims a solid with a curve, surface, or solid. The trim tool is useful for removing material from a base solid. In addition to trimming to surfaces or another solid, the trim solid tool has the unique ability to allow trimming a solid to a curve.
    • Skinned Solids create a solid from a collection of closed profiles. Create skin solids using profiles composed of individual curves (such as circles or ellipses) or grouped curves. A profile composed of individual curves does not have to be grouped for use with this tool.
    • Polygon from Curves tool draws a polygon with the number of sides determined by chosen points.
    • New Project Curve to Plane tool projects 3D curves into a 2D plane.

    Pro Architectural Design

    2D/3D Architectural Design Tools

    1,000 Floor Plans

    Save time with one of these pre-designed floor-plans you can customise to make your own.

    Smart Walls

    2D/3D self-healing walls automatically join, intersect and update to speed up design. Additional Walls options include auto-dimensioning (applied as they are drawn), auto trim of wall vertices, and assignment of hatch patterns and colours.

    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. Details such as the frame and direction of the door opening are displayed. In addition, users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for rapid and precise placement. Plus, windows and doors can now be drawn and displayed in 2D and 3D simultaneously simply by entering a value for the wall height.

    Photorealistic & Sketch Rendering

    Photorealistic Rendering

    TurboCAD Mac Pro helps you produce professional quality renderings for optimal presentation. Choose from nearly 2,000 new materials, over 3,700 new decals, or apply any *.BMP or *.JPG images to your 3D models for more true-to-life renders. Add lighting, shadowing, reflectance, roughness and environmental effects, then render with the powerful LightWorks Photorealistic Rendering Engine.

    Photorealistic Rendering & Lighting
    Sketch Rendering

    Sketch rendering for stills and animations makes it easier for computer-generated models to look hand drawn. By avoiding the photo-realistic rendering look, artistic and emotional appeal can be brought out in the design. It is particularly appropriate in the early stages of conceptual design to avoid the feeling of completion. Sketch styles include:-

    • Cartoon
    • Colour Wash
    • Contour
    • Hand Drawn
    • Hatch
    • Ink Print
    • Line & Color Fill
    • Line & Shadow
    • Mosaic
    • Oil Painting
    • Rough Pencil
    • Soft Pencil
    • Stipple
