User can now use Dynamic Cut Plane while in Draft render. The 3 cut planes introduced (XY, YZ, XZ) makes it easy to define the specific plane for the dynamic cut. The settings added to the Drawing Setup window helps the user to select different filling pattern styles for the cut plane.

b. Auto Update Current View - Improved Feature (TurboCAD 2022 Platinum, Professional & Deluxe Software titles)

A new option “Auto update current view” has been added to the Draft Render in Camera Properties. When this option is enabled, the dialog parameter changes are immediately applied to the active window. Previously, the changes were applied only when clicking the “OK” button after selecting the options. But with this new option, user is able to have immediate results when selecting/deselecting different options before even clicking the “OK” button.

c. Visual Styles Settings - Improved Feature (TurboCAD 2022 Platinum, Professional & Deluxe Software titles)

Visual Style Settings have been added to the named views. New draft rendering visual styles have been added to the Camera Properties -, X-Ray, Conceptual, Shades of Gray.

d. Camera Extended Parameters - New Feature (TurboCAD 2022 Platinum, Professional & Deluxe Software titles)

A new set of extended parameters have been added to Draft Rendering page of Camera Properties. These parameters are available for 3 visual style modes i.e., X-Ray, Conceptual, Shades of Gray. Each visual style has its own set of parameters. When changing the parameters, you can switch the styles from one to another. The extended parameters include Edge and Face mode/color related settings.

17. TurboLux - New Feature (TurboCAD 2022 Platinum, Professional & Deluxe Software titles)

TurboLux is a state-of-the-art rendering technology which exploits Physically Based Rendering (PBR) techniques. PBR models light and materials based on the laws of physics, accurately simulating the flow of light, resulting in eye-popping images of photographic quality.

Support for PBR-compatible Materials for TurboCAD is included in the 2022 release, with over 800, fully-editable TurboLux materials in the TurboCAD Materials Palette. PBR Materials extend the traditional color mapping with normal, metallic, roughness, and height maps. Combined with shaders for matte, glossy, glass, car paint, and metal, these new materials enable renderings to look more realistic by simulating real world imperfections such as scratches, roughness, smudges, or noise

Heterogeneous Computing

TurboLux uses OpenCL and/or CUDA to run on any number of CPUs or Nvidia-based GPUs that are available on your machine. This highly optimized rendering layer provides performance that scales nearly linearly with the number of available computing devices. Using this high performance device layer, TurboLux extracts the most out of your computer’s available hardware, which results in faster, high quality rendered images.

TurboCAD Rendering Utilizing 32 CPU Threads and 2560 CUDA Cores

Advanced Rendering Features - Denoiser and Caustics

Denoiser – As a progressive based rendering engine, TurboLux samples pixels towards a final rendered solution. Sometimes this sampling process can produce fireflies or unlit pixels. Using a Denoiser is one way to remove these artifacts to accelerate progress towards a final, better quality rendered solution in a dramatically reduced period of time.

(a) Normal

(b) Denoised

Denoised Image after 20 Samples

Caustics

Caustics is an optical phenomenon where light shines through typically glass or water materials only to reflect and refract into additional light rays of different wavelengths and colors.

TurboLux supports advanced caustics by providing bidirectional path tracing to trace light not only from the camera but also from the lights in your scene to render the complex lighting scenes. This is particularly beneficial in Interior Design
