Annotation Tools

Dimensioning and Text are vital to any CAD Drawing. TurboCAD® Designer 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.

Handle-Based Editing

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.

PDF Publishing

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®.
