The Ultimate in Design Productivity
TurboCAD® Mac Pro makes it easy to design in 2D or 3D with a setup wizard, customisable toolbars and the most usability features including:
Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools
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. Here is a sampling of 2D tools.
Advanced 2D/3D Architectural Design Tools
TurboCAD® Mac Pro includes advanced tools for professional architectural design as well as thousands of symbols, materials, decals, and pre-drawn floorplans. Self-healing walls auto-dimension as they are drawn, auto trim wall vertices, and allow for assignment of hatch patterns and colour. Roof and slab tools work to quickly attach to existing walls, and when parametric doors and windows are added, the built-in intelligence automatically creates the needed openings.
Mesh Modeling Tools
Quickly create quad mesh primitives, extrusions, coverts, lathes, and meshes by points. Use subdivision modeling tools to smooth a quad mesh with a few clicks. Use in conjunction with the gripper tool for direct manipulation allowing you to easily create more organic shapes.
Surface Modeling 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 Modeling 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.
TurboCAD Mac Pro makes it easier to visualise your next woodworking project with a suite of woodworking joint tools. Create these joints with just a few clicks:
A suite of assembly tools speed 3D design while snaps and alignment aids ensure accuracy.
TurboCAD Mac Pro 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.
Powerful Photorealistic and Sketch Rendering
Add materials, lighting including special effects lighting, and environmental effects to create stunning photorealistic renderings. High Dynamic-Range Images (HDRI) are supported as well as export of poster size images. You can even select a sketch render styles like cartoon, colour wash, pencil, mosaic and more for an artistic effect.
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
TurboCAD Mac Pro includes 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.
Superior File Compatibility
A large number of industry standard formats make collaboration easy including the latest AutoCAD DWG, 3DS, Adobe® EPS, Illustrator® and Photoshop®, DXF, IGES, PICT, PNG, ACIS SAT, STL, STEP, TIFF, Trimble SketchUp and more.
Multi-threading is a technique by which an operation can use several processors to complete the command. TurboCAD Mac Deluxe now uses multi-threading in the following workflow areas:
Creating a Bill of Material (BOM) now has options for specifying the following table settings:
The Context Menu displayed on right clicking in the empty drawing area displays a variety of useful commands. Now with TurboCAD Mac V10, you can add your favorite commands to this menu.
A new Copy Keep Original Layer option will preserve the original layer with the copied object for the transform tools of Translate, Rotate, Scale, and Mirror. The default behavior assigns the current work layer.
Draw Views are now only dependent on the viewing area and layers. This is a change from previous versions where populating a New Draw View was accomplished by cutting and pasting objects. Additionally, new tools are introduced to dynamically pan and zoom the viewing area within a Draw View.
Select tool options, including Lasso, Feature, and Mesh, allow for more efficient workflow and management of your CAD drawings.
The Gripper Tool now offers an auto sizing update.
Infinite Plane objects are used in TurboCAD Mac to trim, section cut, and intersect objects. However the default Infinite Plane is sometimes too difficult to visualize intersections through a body due to its small display size. With TurboCAD Mac v10, you can now resize Infinite Planes and set transparency to better visualize how the plane relates to other geometry in your file.
Checks and repairs a collection of curves for gaps and duplicates. Gaps below user tolerances are repaired. Gaps above user tolerances are identified with red markers.
Quickly snap one part to another with the new Magnet Tool. The part is moved from its current location, orientated, and centered within the selected face.
Mesh Symmetry is a new option that allows modification of vertices, edges, and facets of a mesh object through a symmetry plane.
A new quad mesh modifier offsets a selected facet and adds connecting facets.
The wood working tool palette has a new option for quickly creating pocket hole.
With KeyShot Live Linking, you can use TurboCAD Mac side by side with KeyShot to produce stunning renders. Our Live Linking implementation also introduces an industry first to create “Presentation Drawings”.
CAD data in TurboCAD Mac is displayed with the help of a display list created by tessellating geometry. This process speeds up in version 10 by integrating multi-threading to the tessellation process and optimizing the display of data using OpenGL.
Precision data translators were developed by the world’s foremost expert in Interoperability—Dassault Systems (creators of CATIA & SolidWorks). 3D Interop integrates advanced features such as Geometry Repair, Topology Repair, and Tolerance Resolution.
An exciting new feature in TurboCAD Mac v10 (Deluxe and Pro) is the introduction of 3D PDF data export. 3D PDF is a file format that is supported by Adobe allowing you to share CAD data with Acrobat Reader, a highly popular PDF viewer. The 3D PDF export has the following options:
The SAB file is a binary representation of the ACIS SAT file format. A SAT file is stored as ASCII text, which is less compressed than the binary format.
The creators of SketchUp have removed many of the data translators in the free version of SketchUp Make, urging customers to switch to the Pro version. However, with TurboCAD Mac v10 you can continue to share your data directly with Make by using the new SketchUp native file format. Plus the updated translators now import the latest versions of SketchUp 2016!
New export option saves TurboCAD Mac v10 data as native SketchUp files.
TurboCAD Mac v10 (Deluxe and Pro) now support exporting of the popular STL file format for 3D printing using either ASCII or Binary options. With TurboCAD Mac v10 you can specify a unit format. This allows a designer to continue to work in inches but export to millimeters. This is especially useful when exporting to 3D print software that only works with millimeters.
The DXF and DWG translator technology in TurboCAD Mac is powered by the OpenDesign SDK, used by hundreds of CAD/CAM companies for compatibility with AutoDesk products. TurboCAD Mac v10 includes an updated SDK as well as these improvements:
Intel® Mac®, 8 GB of hard disk space, 4 GB RAM or greater, Mouse Pointing Device (wheel button recommended).
TurboCAD Mac supports Apple’s 64 bit architecture. The result is smoother workflow, faster drawing display and manipulation, and the ability to work with parts and models of nearly any size.
