TurboCADВ® Mac Deluxe 2D/3D makes it easy to design anything.
TurboCADВ® Mac Deluxe 2D/3D makes it easy to design anything. Snap to x, y coordinates to quickly layout floorplans, diagrams and more with the complete set of 2D design tools. The new freehand spline gives you maximum drawing freedom while the new fair curve tool lets you precisely manipulate any spline circle, arc or curve. Use the 3D surface and solid modeling tools to build accurate models that are easy to manipulate and quickly edit. Perfect for architects, illustrators, engineers and more.
Create and Easily Manage Detailed Designs
Speed design with over 11,000 pre-drawn symbols, or use the new block manager to quickly create, edit and manage 2D/3D blocks. Organize layers into new layer sets for optimal drawing management.
Precise Architectural Design Features
Quickly create floor plans with the drafting assistant or choose from 1,000 included pre-drawn plans. Speed architectural design with new parametric doors and windows. When placed into the new self-healing walls, TurboCAD will automatically create an opening in the wall, and users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for more precise placement.
Share Designs with Ease
Easily import existing designs from popular CAD and graphic design file formats, including AutoCADВ® DWG/DXF. Just as easily, export your precision designs and technical drawings from TurboCAD to other CAD formats, or choose a popular desktop publishing formats to create brochures or other marketing materials. Even print design to your specifications with new options for better control of how the printed document will look.
What's New in This Release:Improved Printing
New Options in Page Layout to Keep Dimensions Text Size, Keep Text Size and overlay the drawing in the Print Preview window. All enable better user control of how the printed document will look.
New Layer Sets
New Layer SetsLayers may now be organized into sets, making it easy to visually turn on and off appropriate visual aspects of a model. The number of layer sets is virtually unlimited, layers can be assigned to as many sets as necessary, and sets can be recursively nested.
New Circular Fill
The enhanced fill tool automatically creates polygons when needed, so you can add solid fills to circle objects for added flexibility in design.
New & Improved Wall Options
wall-options.gif TurboCAD MacвЂ™s new and improved self-healing walls are automatically join, intersect, and update to speed design. New enhancements enables auto-dimensioning of walls as they are drawn, auto trimming of wall vertices, and allows for assignment of a hatch pattern and a color to a wall.
New & Improved Door Tool
Save time adding doors to architectural designs. Simply insert one of the three 2D door styles into a wall, and TurboCAD Mac will automatically create an opening in the wall for the door. In addition, users can offset the door a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for more precise placement.
The door tool comes with 3 styles - Single, Single Standard and Double.
New & Improved Window Tool
wall-options.gif Like the door tool, users can quickly insert one of the three 2D window styles into a wall, and TurboCAD Mac will automatically create an opening in the wall for the window. Plus, for more precise placement, windows can be offset a prescribed distance from the end of the wall on which they are placed.
The window tool includes 3 styles - Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill.
New Block Manager
New palette which enables users to create, edit and manage Blocks. A block preview window is included. Both 2D and 3D Blocks are supported.
New Fair Curve Tool
Accurately smooth and tolerance spline curves with this exciting new tool.
New Freehand Spline Tool
Get added flexibility with the ability to create a vector spline by freehand drawing, as opposed to using user-defined points.
New Lip Solid Tool
The Lip Solid tool sweeps a profile about a collection of edges and either adds or subtracts the resultant sweep to or from the base solid. The given profile is automatically aligned perpendicular to the selected edge. In addition, a reference point is specified such that the profile is translated from the reference point to the start position along the edge selected. When the base solid is regenerated the profile is always translated from the reference position to that on the edge and then realigned.
New Rib Tool
The Rib tool extrudes and thickens a closed or open profile into a base solid. The profile is terminated up to the first face it reaches in the direction of the extrude.
New Invert Zoom for all mouse models
TurboCAD Mac v5 offers the new ability to define whether вЂњScroll InвЂќ or вЂњScroll OutвЂќ on the mouse wheel defines вЂњZoom InвЂќ or вЂњZoom OutвЂќ. Formerly, вЂњScroll InвЂќ could only define the вЂњZoom InвЂќ action, but now users can go to the file preferences and invert the Zoom command on the mouse, making it much easier to navigate in and out of a desired area of the drawing.
TC Symbols now display filename
The filename of your TurboCAD Mac symbols now displays when the cursor is passed over a symbol. This makes it much easier to identify, locate, and insert symbols, especially when they look similar in the preview.
