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.
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
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.
Conic section tools allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane.
Mark-up 2D and 3D objects using line, circle, revision cloud, highlighter, text, rectangular text box and leader.
Use this tool to rapidly trim a closed region. Simply click inside or outside to control which side is trimmed.
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.
Use polylines or curves to set the boundary of a loft.
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).
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.
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.
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.
An intuitive graphical widget that attaches to your objects allowing you to dynamically move, rotate and scale objects in 2D or 3D.
Create custom toolbars for quick access to your favorite TurboCAD Mac tools.
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.
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.
Nearly 2,000 new materials have been added to the materials library for greater, more photorealistic rendering and visualisation.
Over 37,000 new Decals have been added.
Over 25,000 new symbols including electrical, mechanical and architectural.
Work with the latest AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT files. Users can also easily import old TurboCAD Mac files when saved to this format.
TurboCAD® Mac Pro makes it easy to design in 2D or 3D. Use the new multi-step wizard to quickly set up your drawing, defining unit format, paper size, print, drawing scale annotation settings, text and dimension. Plus, usability is enhanced with customisable toolbars and more including:-
TurboCAD Mac Pro provides unlimited 2D design options. Choose from a number 2D drafting tools including line, arc, curve, circle, ellipse and spline tools. Access text, dimensioning tools, modifier and transformation tools for easy editing. Some of the 2D tools include:-
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:-
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.
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:-
Save time with one of these pre-designed floor-plans you can customise to make your own.
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.
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.
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.
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:-
Work with the latest AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT files. We've added support for .DWG 2013 file format so that you can collaborate with people using even the latest Autodesk® software versions. Users can now easily import old TurboCAD Mac files when saved to this format.
Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions.
