The LogiCursor thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily as you draw. Combine with snaps to quickly locate tangent and perpendicular points, or align to x, y, z axis edges, faces or workplanes, making TurboCAD Mac ideal for modelling in 3D or quickly laying floorplans, diagrams and more.
Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools
TurboCAD Mac offers a large selection of 2D tools, so that no matter the situation you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. Included you’ll find line, arc and curve tools as well as circle, ellipse, polygon, and spline tools. Conic tools allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane. Plus access text and dimensioning tools, fillet and chamfer tools, 2D modifier and transformation tools.
Mesh Modelling Tools
Create 3D mesh designs from multiple points. The Quad Mesh tools allow users to create primitives, extrusions, coverts, lathes, and meshes by points.
Surface Modelling Tools
Quickly model complex 3D objects with advanced design and modification tools. Primitives, complex and advanced surface tools, as well as surface modifiers and transformation tools are included.
ACIS® Solid Modelling Tools
The powerful ACIS 3D solid modeling engine and file filters fully supports 64 bit DLLs to create realistic, complex 3D objects as well as data crucial for engineers.
History Free Editing
Easily move, scale or rotate the individual components of your parts without having to maintain a part-tree.
2D/3D Architectural Design Tools
TurboCAD Mac includes a suite of tools to speeds architectural design, including:
- 1,000 pre-drawn floor plans you can customise to make your own
- 2D/3D self-healing walls that automatically join, intersect, and update that auto-dimension, auto trim wall vertices, and automatically create openings when doors or windows are added.
- Parametric Doors, 3 styles - Single, Single Standard, or Double
- Parametric Windows, 3 styles - Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill
- Slab Tool that attaches slabs to existing walls. Control thickness and offset.
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.
Complete File Compatible & Conversion Options
Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Just as easily, export technical drawings from TurboCAD to one of the many supported file formats to share your work. You can also use TurboCAD’s powerful batch conversion tool to batch convert a collection of drawings to other file formats.
Import or export from these popular formats
3DS, Adobe EPS (import only), Adobe® Illustrator (export only), Adobe® Photoshop®, BMP, AutoCAD 2013 DWG/DXF, IGS, JPG, PICT, PNG with alpha channel export, ACIS SAT, Spline, STL, STEP, TIFF, TEXT, Truespace COB (import only). Import Filters - EPS, Facet, PDF, PhotoShop, SketchUp, Export Filters - OBJ, VRML
The Print by Layer Tool is extremely useful when you have multiple sets of data within one file that needs printing. For less complex jobs, use the Print Window option to simply drag the mouse over the area of your design you wish to print. Use page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page, controlling text size and more.
3D Printing Tools
New to TurboCAD Mac Pro are a suite of tools to check and prepare a part for 3D Printing. These include a 3D Print Check, Surface Normals Check, Overhang Analysis, Wall Thickness, Preview Slices, Auto Position, Support Structure, Show Printer Volume, and Printer Definitions.
Record, Publish, & PDF
Record your screen with QuickTime Recording including audio capture for creating videos and tutorials. Save designs as single or multi-page PDFs for sending via email, or export to one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and more.
New Gripper Tool
The Gripper Tool places a graphical interface on top of a 2D or 3D object making it easy to duplicate, translate, rotate, scale, and face copy the object. Click and drag simple handles to get on-the-ﬂy changes with size and orientation of your object
The Navigator is a viewing tool independent of your drawing. The Navigator has two viewing modes: Sphere Mode and Step Mode. To toggle between the two modes, click the Step Mode or Sphere Mode button in the top right corner of the dialog.
New Batch File Converter
The Batch File command located on the File menu will read in a variety of file formats and process into other file formats.
New Save for Review
The Save for Review command saves the current file to a new file name while locking the layer list. Locking the layer list prevents anyone from making changes to the file without first unlocking the layers. Use the Save for Review command in combination with the Markup tools.
New Bridge Tool
The Bridge tool connects two facet regions together. Connect two regions together by combining and merging facets, edges, and vertices.
New Add Loop Tool
Inserts a new row of facets, edges, and vertices into a part, providing additional control over regions of a meshed part.
New Fill Hole
The Fill Hole tool adds triangles or quads to close an open hole.
The Push/Pull tool allows you to create 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.
3D Print Check
The 3D Print Check tool checks a part for its print viability, displaying warnings or errors to the user.
Surface Normals Check
This tool performs a visual analysis of a part's surface normals. Facets displayed green have correct facet normals whereas red represent an improperly defined facet normal.
The Overhang Analysis tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may require structural support for 3D printing.
The Wall Thickness Analysis tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets are examined using ray intersections.
The Preview Slices tool provides a user interface to slice models given a direction and thickness. The dialog box allows for animation through the slices as well as single stepping. One use of the Preview Slice tool is to verify a part has closed, non overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.
The Auto Position tool positions a collection of parts within the boundaries of the default print platform.
The Support Structure provides a tool that manually adds geometry to support material as it is created by the 3D printer.
Show Printer Volume
Toggles the boundary of the default 3D Printer. The volume is defined within the Printer Definitions dialog box.
The Printer Definitions dialog box provides a means to set key parameters of the 3D printer. The parameters include the length, width, and height of the volume accessible by the printer
