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.

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.

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.

System Requirements

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. If your Mac does not use the 64-bit kernel required to support the 64-bit version of TurboCAD Mac, there is also a 32-bit version available.
