  • 64-Bit Compatible so you can load, process, and render models of nearly any size.
  • Context Sensitive Help System to get help with any tool instantly.
  • Gripper Tool to dynamically move, rotate, & scale objects in 2D or 3D. Expanded functions now include duplicate, translate, and face copy for added versatility.
  • Viewport Layouts display multiple views of your drawing at once.
  • 3D Connexion Space Mouse as well as traditional mouse support.

  • Over 38,000 2D/3D symbols and parts for AEC, Mechanical, Electrical, Process Plant and Piping.
  • 1.5 Hours of Video Tutorials along with step by step guides and sample models.

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.

  • Polygon Tools – Slot polygon, N-Sided polygon, and polygon from curves tool.
  • Conic Tools, a.k.a. conic section tools, allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane.
  • Connect Curve Tool – Join Option – The Join Curve option replaces the two curves you select with a new spline curve. This tool will also join two polylines
  • Sketch Spline Tool – samples points as the cursor moves and creates a smooth spline through the sampled data. Once selected this tool has two options, the Sketch Spline tool and Sketch on a Surface tool.
  • Fair Spline Tool – The Fair Spline command provides a tool to globally smooth a curve. Fairing a spline optimally moves control vertices to locations that minimise large curvature variations.

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.

Woodworking Tools

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:

  • Rabbet Joints
  • Dado Joints
  • Miter Joints
  • Dovetail Joints
  • Tongue and Groove Joints

Assembly Tools

A suite of assembly tools speed 3D design while snaps and alignment aids ensure accuracy.

  • Assembly Connect – connects one solid to another at a specified connection point.
  • Assembly Mate – Mate planar faces. You can specify an offset distance between mated faces.
  • Assembly Align – Align a face of two solid objects and supports cylindrical, spherical and planar faces.
  • Assembly Insert – Align and mate the faces of two solid objects. The align faces must be cylindrical and the mate faces must be planar. This tool is very useful for inserting bolts into holes.

Part Tree

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.

New Features

Split Mesh

This tool allows you to divide a mesh into two portions based on a cutting plane. Split Mesh is an ideal tool for those working with faceted data along with 3D printing manufacturing processes.

Mesh Booleans

This advancement provides a means to add or remove material from a mesh body. Previous versions only allowed Boolean operations on ACIS®- based solids. Now with the introduction of mesh Booleans, you can add/remove material imported from STL, OBJ, 3DS, and SketchUp.

Wrap

The Wrap tool will help you place text, company logos, or complex 2D patterns onto 3D surfaces. The results are perfect for imprinting, embossing, or engraving.

PhotoRender SpotLight

This new visualization tool creates a soft shadow directly under a group of objects. This is an alternate to the default PhotoRendering method that uses a distant light offset.

LightWorks® PhotoRender Support of Imported Textures

Texture materials imported using the OBJ, 3MF, 3DS, and SketchUp data translators are recognized using the photo rendering features, including screen renders as well as high-resolution output files.

Weight and Volume Tables

Whether you’re designing an aircraft, automobile, or picnic table, weight is key control parameter in a design. Tracking the weight of materials is a key control parameter in design. V12 introduces a new Bill of Material (BOM) attribute specific for creating a summed weight table.

Watch the Weight and Volume Tables Tutorial

Best Fit Line and Best Fit Circle

Great for tracing precise curves over rough sketches. This tool will “best fit” a line or circle from a sample collection of points.

Watch the Best Fit Line and Best Fit Circle Tutorial

AutoLayer

AutoLayer is a tool that will automatically assign an entity to a layer based on the same shape or by entity name. Use AutoLayer to help organize files imported from other applications that do not support layering.

Repeat Previous Command

This “right click” feature will save you lots of time by maintaining a list of last-used drawing commands. Select an item in the list to quickly change the current tool.

Interoperability / File Support

Now you can work with file types from these other programs like DWG/DXF 2020 Import/Export, PDF Import, Adobe Illustrator Import, SketchUp 2020 Import/Export, and Collada (DAE) Import/Export.
