It includes a customizable Ribbon Interface with 4K monitor support to optimize productivity and readability on higher resolution displays.

TurboCAD® Platinum can help you design projects such as:

  • Advanced mechanical designs
  • Architectural drawings
  • Remodeling plans
  • Inventions and patent designs
  • Prototyping with 3D printers
  • Mechanical drawings
  • Furniture design, woodworking, and cabinetry
  • Musical instruments
  • Graphics and technical illustrations
  • Product and Packaging design
  • 2D drafting, diagraming and schematic drawings

Advanced 2D Design and Editing (Platinum Exclusive)

TurboCAD® is rich in professional 2D/3D design tools and drawing aids that speed design. Create views and viewports of any size and shape. Access extensive paper space and printing options. Multi-select drawing tool, dimension tools, and more.

Enjoy all the 2D Design and Editing features with the advanced exlusive features available only on TurboCAD® Platinum, like Select by Similar that is allowing you to select objects with shared or similar properties.

2D Geometric and Dimensional Constraints (Platinum Exclusive)

Make use of Smart Dimension tools that include parallel, orthogonal, rotated, and Auto Dimension tools to reliably display measurements of lines and angles.

By setting up Constraints in a drawing, TurboCAD® users have greater control to enforce design intent, as 2D Constraints typically drive 3D model design.

Part Tree/History Tree (Platinum Exclusive)

TurboCAD® Platinum Maintains your design history. View and revise changes and modifications performed on individual objects, groups or blocks to assess your progress. Return to any procedural step in your design and make modifications without losing subsequent work. Works like a Selective UNDO/REDO.

ACIS®-Based Solid Modeling (Platinum Exclusive)

TurboCAD® Platinum provides you with ACIS Solid modelling engine. Make your models realistic with solid objects that have volume and shape as well as a framework, skin (set of surfaces) encasing the framework, and inner “body”.

The thread tool, twisted extrude, extrude to face, imprint tool, parametric holes, imprint and more enable the easy creation of your more complicated professional designs. Access advanced modification tools like bend, unbend, and facet offset make it easier to modify existing geometry. Smooth surface mesh / sub-D modeling tools are also available allowing for the creation of more organic shapes.

Advanced Mechanical Design Tools (Platinum Exclusive)

TurboCAD® Platinum employs a large selection of mechanical tools such as line, arc, and spline tools so that you have always got the right tools for the job.

Intelligent (Parametric) Architectural Objects (Platinum Exclusive)

Set parameters of your objects by easily selecting and conveniently modifying the specifications of your drawing.

Advanced 3D Surface Modeling (Platinum Exclusive)

Includes a complete set of 3D surface modeling and editing tools making it ideal for both single part and small assembly mechanical designs. TurboCAD® Platinum has advanced surfaces, and also smooth surface meshes.

Programmable SDK & Ruby Scripting (Platinum Exclusive)

Use the SDK tools in the TurboCAD add-ons menu. Use the Ruby console to run functions, load Ruby scripts, or define new functions.

Architectural and GIS Tools

An integrated suite of architectural tools are included, such a parametric architectural objects that are AutoCAD® Architecture (ACA) compatible so that .DWG models with ACA extensions may be read, modified, and documented as needed.

Powerful Drafting Palette

Create associative views, 2D sections, and detailed views that can be updated in real-time – even from an Xref. Works with both ACIS® Solids and Surface models.

Design Director Palette

Provides advanced controls for Layers, Layer Filters, creating Layer Sets, setting and saving Work Planes, controlling Named Views, and more to streamline work and enhance productivity.

Advanced Photorealistic Rendering and Visualization

The LightWorks® rendering engine creates stunning presentations. Render management of materials, luminance, environments, and advanced render styles give you truly photorealistic results. An optional rendering plug-in from Redway takes advantage of your computer’s GPU and produces faster, stunning photorealistic images.

Professional Mechanical CAD Native File Translators (Platinum Exclusive)

Import 3D model designs from enterprise CAD Modelers such as CATIA, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Inventor, NX and ProE.

Complete Compatibility and File Sharing

Whether you’re a team of one or many, you’ll have the interoperability needed to collaborate. We’ve ensured that TurboCAD® is compatible with a wide variety of popular CAD and Graphics formats. You will be able to deliver files that can be opened and edited by users of AutoCAD® and other popular design software. Your team will be running like a well-oiled machine.
