KEY FEATURES

Powerful UI & Performance

TurboCAD Professional 2019 is for experienced 2D/3D CAD users already familiar with AutoCAD®2019 or AutoCAD®2019 LT looking for a powerful alternative. It includes all of the 2D drafting, 3D surface modeling, photorealistic rendering, and extensive file support of TurboCAD Professional 2019. TurboCAD Professional 2019 also includes an AutoCAD®2019-like 2D drafting interface option with command line and dynamic input cursor that simplifies the transition from AutoCAD®2019. Plus, additional professional features are included in TurboCAD Professional 2019 to enhance productivity and interoperability.

Design Director

Organize, access, and explore design alternatives. The 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.

2D Design and Editing

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.

3D Surface Modeling

TurboCAD® includes a complete set of 3D surface modeling and editing tools making it ideal for both single part and small assembly mechanical designs.

Architectural & GIS

TurboCAD® includes an integrated suite of architectural tools that accelerate productivity in design and drafting, or in the documentation of existing compatible architectural models. The architectural objects are AutoCAD® Architecture (ACA) compatible so that .DWG models with ACA extensions may be read, modified, and documented as needed.

Photorealistic Rendering & Visualization

TurboCAD Platinum 2019 includes the LightWorks rendering engine to create stunning presentations. Render management of materials, luminance, environments, advanced render styles and more, allow users create truly photorealistic presentations of their design.

Interoperability / File Support

TurboCAD® makes it easy to maintain your intellectual property investment and share your work. TurboCAD Platinum 2019 supports export of 3D models to 3D .PDF which can be viewed interactively with Acrobat Reader. Plus, users can open, insert, or embed up to 35 file formats and export up to 28, including .DWG, .DXF (from R14 through 2018 including AutoCAD® Architecture extensions), .SKP (SketchUp™, to version 2018), .3DM (Rhinoceros®), .3DS (Autodesk® 3ds Max®), IGES, STEP, .OBJ, COLLADA (.DAE – export); 3MF and FBX and many more.

External References (Xrefs)

All of the file formats that may be opened and imported, except bitmap images, may be used as an external reference (Xref). TurboCAD® offers Xref clipping for dozens of file formats and binding of Xrefs, which can then be exploded and edited. Xref layers are also easy to manage, including with layer filters.

NEW FEATURES

USABILITY:

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.

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.

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.

2D DRAFTING AND EDITING:

Select by Similar:

This powerful tool allows users to select any 2D or 3D object type or a Block and then find all occurrences of that in the drawing. Very detailed selections can be made that include parameters such as pen color and style, brush color and style, layer, even the selected object’s coordinate system. A great tool to use in conjunction with making further global changes to that selected object.

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.

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.

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.

3D DESIGN AND MODELING:

Surface Extrude:

Users can now select flat 3D polylines or 3D curves for Surface Extrude tools such as Revolve. Also, 3D Curve and Curve (2D) are now separate tools.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN:

Architectural Desktop (ADT) Objects:

ADT objects can now be completely and accurately used with Copy and Linear Array copy tools. For example, the Array Fit Linear now takes into account all of the properties of the ADT object being copied, including Work Plane, Layer, Materials, etc. Previously, this tool could create only one roof object. Now, multiple objects may be created. In addition, the overall processing of all ADT objects in a drawing , including the House Wizard, has been significantly sped up.

BIM Tool:

Data collection of IFC files has been improved, the BIM Palette now shows the BIM file structure, and the BIM tool and BIM Palette’s UI’s have now been more tightly integrated, making these architectural modeling parts of TurboCAD easier to use.

PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERING AND VISUALIZATION:

New LightWorks® rendering engine and Sun and Sky Shader:

The LightWorks rendering engine has been upgraded to v9.3. New properties “sun dir by geo-location” and “dir by geo-location” added to “Sky” and “Sun” shaders correspondingly

RedSDK to LightWorks Porting:

RedSDK rendered images are now more automatically, accurately and completely converted to a LightWorks rendered image.

INTEROPERABILY:

AutoCAD 2019 Compatibility:

TurboCAD 2019 now fully supports AutoCAD DWG, DXF and DWF file formats.

STL Filter – 3D Print Check:

A 3D Print Check option has been added when exporting an STL file. This tool checks a part for common topological errors such as: non manifold edges, duplicated and collapsed facets, open edges, shells and more. The Print Check tool also displays geometry information such as extents, number of facets/vertices, area, and volume.

FBX Filter:

Export file format for 3D Animation Software such as 3DS, Maya. MotionBuilder and Mudbox.
