TurboCAD Designer 2019 is the best precision design solution on the market for new CAD users. It’s easy to learn and use with quick access to hundreds of 2D drawing, modifying, and dimensioning tools that are perfect for designing floor plans, technical illustrations, flow charts and more.
You can even share your work in over 20 industry standard CAD & graphic file formats including the latest AutoCAD®2019 DWG/DXF formats. Over 10 new and improved features have been added in 2019.
A Complete Set of 2D Drafting and Detailing Tools
TurboCAD Designer 2019 employs a large selection of line, arc, curve, and spline tools, so that you’ve always got the right tool for the job. When used with TurboCAD’s snaps, modification tools, and drawing aids you will be able to quickly draft and document your designs with no restrictions.
Arcs, Bezier Curve, Circles, Ellipses, Construction, Lines, Double Lines, Irregular, Polygon, Lines, Multi-Lines, Parallel Lines, Perpendicular Lines, Points, Polygon, Polyline
Point Marker Tool
Insert Picture, Text, Object, Brush Style
Transform: Move, Rotate, Scale
2 Types of Spline Curves
Array Copy for Drafting Repeating Objects
Boolean Add, Subtract, Intersect
Multiple Object Trim and Extend
Stretch, Split, Trim, Meet Two Lines, Break, Extend
2D Measurements - Angle, Area, Coordinates, Distance
Dimensioning and Text are vital to any CAD Drawing. TurboCAD Designer 2019 includes:
Smart, Quick and Baseline which allow you to dimension automatically.
Associative Dimensions - freely move, rotate, or resize the associated objects and the dimension will retain its position relative to the objects, and the dimension text will change automatically to reflect changes.
Precise Dimensioning up to 10 decimal points.
Formats include: Architectural, Fractional, Engineering, Decimal, and Surveyor.
Multi-Text formatting and scaling options
Linear and angular dimension tools now allow users to specify a fixed length for line extensions and the value for that length.
The ability to globally define dimensions at the drawing level
Pick Point & Path Hatching, Bitmap Fills, and Transparency
TurboCAD allows for hatch patterns and gradients to be layered with transparency. Custom bitmaps, such as your company logo, may be used as well. This empowers you to much more clearly and precisely communicate construction or assembly details.
Save time and draw more accurately, more quickly. TurboCAD® provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating and moving objects.
Super Selector Modes
Drag modes offer precise control over object selection for faster, easier modification of your drawing. Also, a previous selection function allows users to quickly jump back to the last selection with which there was a modification, and restore the selection.
Rectangle Selector Mode is a bidirectional selector.
Window Polygon Selector Mode only selects objects inside a closed polygon.
Crossing Polygon Selector Mode selects objects crossing or within a closed polygon.
Fence Selector Mode selects objects touched by an open polygon.
The TurboCAD® context menu (right-click) provides access to recently used tools, recently entered values, and a quick way to change or reset reference points. If a TurboCAD tool is active, the context menu provides a contextual toolbar as well, with additional similar tools and functions.
Save your drawing as PDF documents for easy sharing. Plus, export paper spaces, customize your fonts and define your paper widths and heights.
CAD and Graphics Compatible
Sharing your files with others and among other programs is easy. TurboCAD supports the most current and popular industry-standard file formats including the latest DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters for working with AutoCAD® 2019.
NEW! Customizable Ribbon Interface
Users now have the ability to fully customize the Ribbon Interface. You can now Add and Rename Tools, Groups and Tabs. In addition, Tabs may be hidden or renamed, and manually created XML Config files can be directly imported into TurboCAD. UI Themes are also full supported in the Ribbon.
NEW! 4K Monitor Support
With new, scaleable vector icons, TurboCAD is now fully optimized for 4K monitors. Through dynamic sliders, toolbar icons, the User Interface and other icons in other part of the UI can be resized to optimize readability on higher resolution displays.
NEW! Named View Enhancements
New functionality has been added where users now have the option of associating Layer Sets with Named Views, giving users a much better way to manage Layers Sets.
NEW! Construct Similar Tool
This tool which takes properties from a referenced object and applies these to the construction of the next object. This tool provides a fast and efficient method to assign object properties such as line fonts, dimension styles, and wall properties with a single click.
The PDF Underlay tool allows you to insert a page of a PDF file into your drawing to use as reference or tracing layer. To use properly as a tracing layer, the file must be a vector PDF, rather than a bit-mapped PDF. As a vector file, you will be able to snap to the endpoints and midpoints of lines in the PDF underlay. Underlays consist of two parts: the underlay style and the underlay insertion. An additional tool, "PDF Underlay to Objects" gives the ability to convert an Underlay into an editable object.
NEW! Highlight End Points:
A new Local Menu item has been added to the Edit tool which highlights the end points on non-closed objects with vertex counts of > 2. Supported Object Types include Polylines, 3D Polylines, Double Lines, Walls, Bezier and Spline Curve.
NEW! Remove Overlapping Entities
The ‘Overkill’ tool removes overlapping lines, arcs, text and dimensions, thereby allowing you to simplify drawings by removing duplicate, redundant Entities. Event viewer shows the count of objects that were changed.
NEW! Pick Point Hatch:
Pick-Point-Hatch now works with gaps in 2D objects. For example, trying to fill an area bounded by a Polyline, when there are gaps in the Polyline. Improvements to pick-point also apply to ADT objects (Walls, Doors and Windows), allowing to similarly fill in gaps between these objects.
NEW! Angular Dimension Tool:
This Local Menu option allows the user to define an obtuse or acute angle dimension based upon the user selecting a vertex point on a 2D object and then defining 2 additional points which in turn define and display the dimensioned angle.
NEW! AutoCAD 2019 Compatibility:
TurboCAD 2019 now fully supports AutoCAD DWG, DXF and DWF file formats.
