TurboCAD is used worldwide, in many different ways, for many different project. We have a supplied a small number of Case Studies below as examples of who is using the software and what they have used it for.
TurboCAD gives a professional performance at the Roundhouse
The Roundhouse, in Chalk Farm, North London is a specialist entertainments and arts venue. The large, round grade 2 listed building was originally a steam engine turning shed. Now converted, but retaining many of its original features, the Roundhouse is able to hold up to 3,000 people standing in the Main Space and seat 120 in the Studio Theatre, making it an ideal and interesting location for large scale performing arts events.
“The main benefit for me is the simple user interface, which means staff can learn the programme very quickly. No matter what level of skill you have, you can view and understand plans and drawings without needing someone to break them down for you”
TurboCAD sails away from the competition for Jordan Boats
Jordan Boats is a Fife based operation which has been producing plywood boat kits since 2003.
TurboCAD is run on a standard PC and is used to provide the drawings supplied to the company’s CNC router and to create 3D models, sectioned to provide the shapes of decks, benches, and other internal fittings.
TurboCAD delivers the goods demanded by discerning designer and chartered builder . . .
As a designer and builder, Bruce Spenser needs a top quality CAD system that can solve the complicated challenges that his work often entails. It must also be compatible with the other systems commonly used in the building industry and be totally reliable. Having used TurboCAD since the first launch of the program over ten tears ago, Bruce considers it as the superior CAD package on the market.
Shinfield Players choose TurboCAD for a winning performance!
The Shinfield Players are an amateur rep company near Reading, that stages about 9/10 productions a year. Graham Vokins, Stage Manager, now uses TurboCAD Professional to design sets and plans of the theatre.
“I very quickly saw that the CAD solution was able to save a lot of time. My first attempt set out the flats took less than an hour, a task which used to take me two evenings. Forming boxes of the plan dimensions, furniture etc in TurboCAD enabled me to plan storage for props not even removed from the store – so no last minute panic in the technical rehearsal.”
“TurboCAD is invaluable for producing good garden design for my discerning clients”
Peter Thomas has been using TurboCAD as his basic design tool ever since starting to work for a landscaping company as their garden designer. Already proficient in CAD and other design software it soon became his preferred method of working.
“It took me 2 days to be using the software to a reasonable speed and proficiency. I have since taught it to other designers and one day of tutorials seems to be sufficient to get someone up and running.”
TurboCAD aids teaching of Carpentry, Joinery and Cabinet Making
Geoff Malthouse first came across TurboCAD while looking for an inexpensive CAD programme to draw plans of woodwork projects and house layouts. Geoff is a retired college Lecturer/Trainer/ Assessor and found that he needed an easy and accurate way of producing drawings and illustrations to print hand-outs supporting his teaching.
” There is a great need for accurate, informative drawings and illustrations in woodwork to explain the many principles and procedures. I found being a lecturer that I could get a students’ edition of AutoCAD and this seemed to answer my needs. But it was hard going and difficult to learn. AutoCAD has its own way of doing things that are often not obvious. Eventually I found TurboCAD and immediately advanced in my CAD work with its intuitive way of doing things. One could literally start drawing using the icon lead tools menu and use snaps, without the need of constant reference to the manual.
“We used TurboCAD extensively for initial scheming of the house, then for much of the design and drawing work needed for Planning Permission “
Holcombe Passive House has been designed to be heated purely by Passive Solar heat and the surplus heat from the occupants, lighting, TV, etc. It will use little or no fossil fuels for either heating or cooling.
The house was designed using TurboCAD by the owners, no Architect was employed and a large proportion of the construction was also carried out by the owners.
