Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools
TurboCAD Mac offers a large selection of 2D tools, so that no matter the situation you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. Included you’ll find line, arc and curve tools. Plus access circle, ellipse, polygon, and spline tools, including the freehand spline and fair spline tools that offer greater control. You will also find power text and dimensioning tools, fillet and chamfer tools, as well as 2D modifier and transformation tools.
Drafting Assistant & Snaps
The Drafting Assistant thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily when necessary. Combine with snaps to quickly locate x, y coordinates, tangents and perpendiculars, and you’ll be able to quickly layout floorplans, diagrams and more.
500 Floor Plans
Start from scratch or choose from any one of these pre-designed floor plans you can customize to make each one your own.
Over 7,000 2D symbols and parts
Choose from thousands of parts and symbols to effortlessly add to your design including electrical, mechanical, bathroom, kitchen, construction, LAN, CMOS, doors, windows, counters, fasteners, HVAC and more. Use the symbols browser to quickly locate just what you need, enhanced with symbol filenames.
Select an object and easily change the geometry in the Edit Objects window. All values appear as whole numbers or decimals and can be entered in any units desired.
Layers and Layer Sets
Use layers to organize your design and create layer sets, making it easy to visually turn on and off appropriate visual aspects of a model for easier editing. The number of layer sets is virtually unlimited, layers can be assigned to as many sets as necessary, and sets can be recursively nested.
Create, edit and manage Blocks in the Block Manager. A block preview window is included.
Architectural Design Tools
Smart walls – TurboCAD Mac’s self-healing walls automatically join, intersect, and update to speed design. Walls can be set to auto trim wall vertices and intersections, and allow for assignment of a hatch pattern and color.
Parametric Doors & Windows – Choose from 3 door styles (Single, Single Standard, or Double) and 3 window styles (Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill) to drag-and-drop into a wall, and TurboCAD Mac will automatically create an opening in the wall. Users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for precise placement, and now control the swing direction of the doors.
Complete File Compatible & Conversion Options
Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Just as easily, you can export technical drawings from TurboCAD into desktop publishing formats, perfect for use in brochures and all other marketing materials.
Import or export from these popular formats: AutoCAD® DWG/DXF, JPEG, Adobe® EPS (export only), Adobe® Illustrator, BMP, PICT, Spline (import only), TEXT.
You can also use TurboCAD’s powerful batch conversion tool to convert single images or groups of images to other file formats.
Printing & PDF
Use Model to Sheet to create page layouts to view and print your design with up to 4 different angles on a single page. Additionally, TurboCAD Mac offer control over text size, dimension text size, and more. Users can also save designs as single or multi-page PDFs in standard or custom sizes for sending via email. You can even print large, data intensive files with poster size clarity.
Updated BOM Dialog
Creating a Bill of Material (BOM) now has options for specifying the following table settings:
- Font Type
- Font Size
- Number of Decimals
New Customizable Context Menu
The Context Menu displayed on right clicking in the empty drawing area displays a variety of useful commands. Now with TurboCAD Mac v10, you can add your favorite commands to this menu.
New Copy Keep Original Layer Option
A new Copy Keep Original Layer option will preserve the original layer with the copied object for the transform tools of Translate, Rotate, Scale, and Mirror. The default behavior assigns the current work layer.
New Draw View Type for Easy Scaled Prints
Draw Views are now only dependent on the viewing area and layers. This is a change from previous versions where populating a New Draw View was accomplished by cutting and pasting objects. Additionally, new tools are introduced to dynamically pan and zoom the viewing area within a Draw View.
New Selection Tools
New Lasso Select tool option, allow for more efficient workflow and management of your CAD drawings.
Improved Gripper Tool
The Gripper Tool now offers an auto sizing update
Updated Interoperability Components (IGES, STEP,SAT)
Precision data translators were developed by the world’s foremost expert in Interoperability—Dassault Systems (creators of CATIA & SolidWorks). 3D Interop integrates advanced features such as Geometry Repair, Topology Repair, and Tolerance Resolution.
