TurboCAD 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 AutoCAD® 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.
Design in 2D and 3D in one easy to useapplication TurboCAD Mac Deluxe has all the powerful 2D drafting and design features of TurboCAD Mac Designer, as well as additional tools for creating 3D models and shaded view renderings. Plus, TurboCAD Mac Deluxe comes with a complete 2D/3D parts and symbols library to drag and drop into your drawing and speed up the design process.
Complete Set of 2D DraftingTools 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, like the new fair curve tool. Plus access circle, ellipse, polygon, and spline tools, including the new freehand spline tool. You’ll also find power text and dimensioning tools, fillet and chamfer tools, as well as 2D modifier and transformation tools.
Drafting Assistant& Snaps The Drafting Assistant thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily as you draw. Combined with snaps to quickly locate tangent and perpendicular points or align to x, y,zaxis edges, faces or workplanes, making TurboCAD Mac ideal for modeling in 3D or quickly laying floorplans, diagrams and more.
Advanced Tools for 3D Design & Rendering TurboCAD Mac Deluxe goes beyond Designer allowing user to create 3D models without sacrificing speed or ease of use. - Mesh tools – create 3D mesh designs from multiple points - Surface modeling – primitive, complex and advanced surface tools, as well as surface modifiers and transformation tools are all included - ACIS Solid modeling technology - Choose from a variety of 3D primitives and access 3D utilities, solid feature tools, solid face modification tools, and more.
1,000Floor Plans Start from scratch or choose from any one of these pre-designed floor plans you can customize to make each one your own.
Over 11,000 2D/3D symbols and parts Choose from thousands of parts and symbols to effortlessly add to your design including electrical, mechanical, bathroom, kitchen, construction, LAN, CMOS, doors, windows, counters, fasteners, HVAC and more. Use the symbols browser to quickly locate just what you need, enhanced to now display symbol filenames.
History Free Editing Easily move, scale or rotate the individual components of your parts without having to maintain a part-tree.
Layers and LayerSets Use layers to organize your design and create layer sets, making it easy to visually turn on and off appropriate visual aspects of a model for easier editing. The number of layer sets is virtually unlimited, layers can be assigned to as many sets as necessary, and sets can be recursively nested.
Block Manager Create, edit and manage Blocks in the Block Manager. A block preview window is included. Both 2D and 3D Blocks are supported.
2D/3D Architectural Design Tools Smart walls - TurboCAD Mac’s self-healing walls automatically join, intersect and update to speed design. Additional Walls options include auto-dimensioning (applied as they are drawn), auto trim of wall vertices, and assignment of hatch patterns and colors. 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. In addition, users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for rapid and precise placement. New in version 6 - Smart walls, windows and doors can now be drawn and displayed in 3D, as well 2D, simultaneously.
Complete File Compatible & ConversionOptions Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Just as easily, you can 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, Adobe Illustrator (export only), Adobe Photoshop, BMP, AutoCAD DWG/DXF, IGS, JPG, PICT, PNG with alpha channel export, ACIS SAT, Spline, STL, STEP, TIFF, TEXT, Truespace COB, Claris CAD (import only)
Printing, Publishing & PDF Use the page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page. Shaded view options for Page Layouts and additional controls over text size, dimension text size, and more offer greater control of how the printed document will look. Alternatively, export drawings from TurboCAD into one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and other marketing materials. Users can also save designs as single or multi-page PDFs in standard or custom sizes for sending via email.
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.
