Professional 2.5D CAD – That Works Like AutoCAD LT
TurboCAD LTE Pro is a full-featured 2.5D CAD software solution with advanced features and extensive file support. TurboCAD LTE offers everything you look for in AutoCAD LT, plus additional advanced features that CAD professionals want, all at a fraction of the price.
Low Learning Curve
If you’re already familiar with AutoCAD LT, the keystrokes, command line, and interface in TurboCAD LTE Pro make it easy to jump right in. There’s no need to re-learn what you already know.
Load, process, and view even the largest CAD files using the 64-bit version of TurboCAD LTE Pro. Increase performance with the GPU-accelerated drawing engine used in conjunction with a variety of productivity tools.
Better Drafting and Detailing
Take designs further with TurboCAD LTE Pro’s powerful drafting palette, page layout wizard, PDF underlay, support for Xrefs, parametric parts manager, constraints, entity marks, and dozens more tools and features you won’t find in AutoCAD LT.
TurboCAD LTE Pro provides architectural features you will not find in AutoCAD LT, including IFC import/export, a range of parametric, ACA/ADT compatible architectural objects, a house wizard, architectural style manager, and more.
Programmable Through Ruby Scripting & SDK
TurboCAD LTE Pro is programmable through Ruby Scripting or the Software Development Kit, allowing for customisations of the software. Create routines, features, or vertical apps to make TurboCAD LTE better suited to your specific needs.
High Compatibility with Other CAD Formats
TurboCAD LTE Pro offers a superior workflow with AutoCAD and SketchUp files, U3D and 3D PDF support and dozens more popular CAD and graphic file formats.
Professional 2.5D Drafting and Detailing
TurboCAD LTE Pro is rich in fundamental drawing tools and drawing aids that speed design. More than an AutoCAD LT® work-alike; it’s a professional 2.5D CAD program that provides all the features you look for in AutoCAD LT, plus many more advanced design tools CAD professionals want.
Low Learning Curve & Enhanced Productivity
TurboCAD LTE Pro is designed to minimise switching costs for AutoCAD LT users. Menus, tools, and icons are easily recognisable. Familiar keystrokes, command line, palette interfaces and an intelligent cursor have been incorporated. TurboCAD LTE Pro also offers exceptional compatibility with the latest .DWG and .DXF file filters allowing you to continue to profit from your existing AutoCAD drawings.
In addition to providing users with a familiar UI, TurboCAD LTE Pro offers a variety of features like a 64-bit version, GPU-accelerated drawing engine, and more, to enhance your productivity.
TurboCAD LTE Pro goes beyond AutoCAD LT to provide more advanced drafting and detailing capabilities. The advanced drafting palette works with solid or surface models, turning 3D designs into associative 2D views and detailed sections to complete your working drawing documentation. The page layout wizard makes this process even easier with two modes to optimise the creation of 2D layouts from either an architectural or a mechanical model. TurboCAD LTE Pro even supports external references, or "Xrefs," making editing more efficient, and helping to keep drawings in synch.
Advanced Architectural Design
TurboCAD LTE Pro provides architectural features you won’t find in AutoCAD LT, including dynamic dimensions, markers, geo-location, a house wizard, architectural style manager, IFC import/export for simple BIM, and a range of parametric, ACA/ADT compatible architectural objects
Programmable Through Ruby Scripting & SDK
Support for customisation through Ruby scripting and the Software Developers’ Kit allows for all sorts of routines, features, or full-fledged vertical applications to be developed and added right to the user interface.
Highly Compatible with Other CAD Formats
TurboCAD LTE Pro supports over 30 industry-standard file formats. Open & save .DWG, .DXF, and .DWF formats from AutoCAD R14 to 2015. Enjoy superior workflow with Trimble MarkUp and SketchUp., now through version 2015. Import/Export files from PDF, 3D PDF, and Universal 3D (U3D) files as well as dozens more popular CAD and graphic file formats.
NEW! Convert Roof Slabs
Now you can take a classic TurboCAD roof, and convert it (explode) the roof to a set of roof slabs. This makes it more convenient to create and edit custom roofs (clipped gable roof, dormer, etc...)
NEW! Trim Roof Slab by plane
This tool allows you to trim a Roof Slab by the plane of another object. The objects that can be used are: Other Roof Slabs, Standard Roofs, or Walls.
NEW! Multi Landing Stairs By Polyline
You can now create multi-landing stairs from a 2D polyline.
IMPROVED! Edit Roof Slope Rise/Run Support
The Edit Roof Slab Tool now includes an input field.
IMPROVED! IFC Object Support
The IFC file filter, commonly used for BIM operations, now supports the Import/Export of Beam object types and Column object types.
IMPROVED! House Wizard Tool
The house wizard, used to quickly layout a house plan, placing and sizing each room, drop in closets, passageways, a garage, and even decking, now allows you to name each room while in the tool so you don’t have to do it after.
New Slots Tools
Three new slot tools for inventors, woodworking and furniture design. They include:
NEW! Point Cloud Support
TurboCAD LTE Pro now offers tools to interpret a point cloud, a set of data points in some coordinate system. In a three-dimensional coordinate system, these points are usually defined by X, Y, and Z coordinates, often intended to represent the external surface of an object.
New! Point Cloud Import/Export
Import or export a point cloud using .PCD and .XYZ formats
New! Point Cloud Triangulation
Ability to extract a Surface from point cloud data set
New! Subset Point Cloud
The ability to select a subset of an existing point cloud and create a separate entity.
NEW! ISO Circle/Grid
This new tool allows you to easily construct isometric circles.
IMPROVED! Conceptual Selector
New! Highlighting (Redsdk Only)
UI enhancement which highlights 3D objects and parts of 3D objects while using certain tools in Redsdk mode including imprinting, quick pull & 3D mirror copying.
Manage all your spaces through the design director including model space, and all paper spaces so you can handle spaces more efficiently than the tab interface allows.
New! PRC 3D PDF Support
TurboCAD LTE Pro now supports both .U3D and .PRC (Product Representation Compact) file export. This new filter option exports 3D content in PRC format.
Improved! 3D PDF Export
TurboCAD 3D PDF export now includes support of Redsdk materials
TurboCAD LTE and TurboCAD LTE Pro are delivered in a 64-bit version to take full advantage of your hardware’s available computer memory to load, process, and render CAD files.
Your experience with TurboCAD will be greatly enhanced with a newer generation, higher speed CPU, 4+ GB RAM, and larger display resolution and graphics support.
The optional GPU-accelerated Redsdk render mode requires a supported graphic processing unit (either a chip on the board, or on a video card). The latest video drivers are typically required. Newer boards with more power and VRAM generally provide greater performance.
