 TurboCAD v.20 is een topgamma 2D en 3D CAD software ontwikkeld sedert meer dan 20 jaar.




New UV Mapping

TurboCAD Pro Platinum users can now project 2D images onto 3D objects.

UV mapping stands for the technique used to "wrap" a 2D image texture onto a 3D mesh. "U" and "V" are the name of the axes of a plane, since "X", "Y" and "Z" are used for the coordinates in the 3D space. For example: increasing your "V" on a sphere might move you along a longitude line (north or south), while increasing your "U" might move you along a line of latitude (east or west).

A 3D model is in fact composed from a number of faces and vertices in space, while a material is a 2D image. UV mapping bridges the gap between 2D and 3D, telling TurboCAD how to "squash" and "slice" the 3D model onto a flat plane, without overlapped faces.

UV Mapping is especially powerful when working to create realistic organic shapes, from creating product comps or designing detailed characters for animation.


New Redsdk v3 Rendering Engine

The RedSDK engine, which takes advantage of GPU-based graphics cards for faster design navigation, has been upgraded to new v3.

  • 10 times faster rendering speed when moving objects

  • New “Show object while dragging” in RedSDK Draft and Hidden Line mode

  • Smoother “Show object while dragging” in RedSDK Wireframe mode

  • Rapid Update after object rotation and move

  • Faster Undo/Redo after object rotation and move

  • Manipulate "heavy" bodies in real-time in all RedSDK modes (wireframe, hidden line, draft



New Associative Arrays - Pattern Tools Updates & Improvements

 TurboCAD pattern tools have been greatly expanded opening a range of new design possibilities. Now users can rapidly create parametric 3D patterns from a wide variety of entities including:

  • ACIS Objects (previously available)

  • Surface Objects

  • 2D Objects

  • 3D Objects

  • Blocks

New Patterns from Compound Profiles
- Use the 2D elements of patterns for 3D object creation via Compound Profiles

New Hole Operations - Pattern points defined by 2D patterns can be used for 3D hole operations.

New Entity Marks

Create custom marks to track, or count, objects and add information using Property Sets and Multi-View blocks.

  • Property Set Definitions- Create custom information for objects, and derive custom information from object geometry.

  • Multi-View Blocks – Define composites of blocks that can vary their appearance depending upon the viewpoint.

New Protractor Tool

TurboCAD now allows you to place a virtual protractor on your drawing to more easily create construction lines in 2D and 3D. The Protractor Tool is able to work in many modes simultaneously with a powerful dynamic display.

New Stellated Polygon Tool

 Create star-shaped polygon objects in two clicks! Just as quickly adjust properties including:

  • Teeth Number

  • Stellated as wave (for rounded stellated polygons)

  • Radius external

  • Radius internal

  • Radius fillet external (works when stellated as wave option is ON)

  • Radius fillet internal

  • Angle of rotation

  • Hole diameter

  • Thickness (when working with ACIS 3D stellated polygons)

Improved Associative Viewport Dimensions - Add dimensions to an object through a viewport in paperspace and the dimensions will update if the model changes.

New Drafting Object Reference Point
- Manually redefine the reference points of drafting objects so you can adapt to changes in the model.

New Dimension Function
- Linear and angular dimension tools now allow users to specify a fixed length for line extensions and the value for that length.



New Editing Tools for Smooth Surface Mesh 3D Modeling

 Last year, a toolbox of Smooth Surface Mesh (smesh) 3D modeling and editing tools were added to TurboCAD Pro Platinum for easier creation of organic shapes. New version 20 enhances these capabilities with two new tools for rapid editing of smesh objects.

  1. New Split Face Smesh Editing Tool allows for quick division of a smesh face so you can more precisely define the area you want to modify. Simply select the smesh face want to split, and then click the locations on the edge of the face where you want the split to start and end. The smesh face is split along the boundary you specified and surrounding faces are adjusted along the new faces.

  2. New Extrude Face Smesh Editing Tool lets users quickly extrude a smesh face along an extrusion path.

New Gear Contour Tool

 TurboCAD Pro takes its new Stellated Polygon Tool one step further with the new Gear Contour Tool. This tool quickly creates gear shaped objects and aligns gear objects. Adjustment properties include:

  • Teeth number

  • Diameter pitch

  • Pressure Angle

  • Angle of rotation

  • Hole Diameter

  • Thickness (when working with ACIS 3D gear objects)

Updated ACIS 3D Modeling Engine

R23 update continues to advance performance and flexibility in TurboCAD 20.

New Selector Option for 3D Booleans

For added flexibility, use one of the new super selector modes (Rectangular, Window Polygon, Crossing Polygon or Fence) to easily select multiple objects for 3D Boolean operations (3D add, 3D Subtract, and 3D Slice).



New 3D .PDF filter

 Export 3D models to .PDF. The 3D object can then be interactively visualized by Acrobat Reader (since version 7).

Improved AutoCAD 2013 (DWG) filter

Updated file filter offers a range of continued enhancements for working with the latest AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT 2010 / 2011 / 2012 / 2013 files to maximize your workflow.

New Export Coordinate Data

Users can now derive point data from the geometry in models and drawings and export the data in a standard CSV format.

New AutoCAD LT work-a-like mode

 Now TurboCAD Pro users can easily switch between a tradition TurboCAD UI and the more modern TurboCAD LTE UI, which allows users familiar with AutoCAD LT to work in a similar environment including dynamic input and a command line.

New Print Window

Enter coordinate values, or use a new pointing device to specify opposite corners of an area you wish to print. It’s a simply way to quickly print just the part of a design you wan to print.

New Super Selector Modes

The drag mode selector has been greatly enhanced with 3 new drag modes, and one new menu item that encapsulates the old selector modes offering more precise control over object selection for faster, easier modification of your drawing.

  1. New Rectangle Selector Mode is a bidirectional selector. It replaces the drag modes previously know as “Window Rectangular Mode” and “Crossing Rectangular Mode”.

  2. New Window Polygon Selector Mode only selects objects which are completely inside a closed polygon. Objects outside or partially outside the polygon will not be selected.

  3. New Crossing Polygon Selector Mode allows you to select those objects which are crossing or completely within a closed polygon.

  4. New Fence Selector Mode selects only those objects which are touched by the open polygon or “fence” created while in this mode.

New Previous Selection Function

This function was added to the selector dragger allowing users to quickly jump back to the last selection with which there was a modification, and restore the selection.

New 64-Bit Version

New 64-Bit Version of TurboCAD addresses up to 32GB of memory, compared to 2GB on the 32-bit platform, so RAM-intensive processes are much quicker. Load, process, and render much larger CAD files. The 32-bit version is still available if it’s required by your hardware.

Updated Design Engines

Update your design technology with the updated ACIS® v22 solid modeling engine, plus LightWorks® v8.3 and Redsdk v3 rendering engines.



NEW Smooth Surface Mesh 3D Modeling Tools

Now you can use existing 3D modeling tools like the Box and Sphere tool to create a smooth surface mesh. Users can set values to specify the tessellation, or resolution, of the resulting smooth mesh. This new form of 3D object creation allows for easier and more rapid creation of organic shapes. There are also a number of editing tools for greater control over a 3D model.

NEW Smoothness Setting

This new setting allows users to control the smoothness level on a smooth mesh.

NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Moving Tool

This editing tool allows users to move the edges and faces of smooth meshes.

NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Crease Tool

Pick an edge between contiguous faces and create a crease or sharp edge in a smooth mesh.

NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Refine Face Tool

Sub-divide any selected face or faces to create higher local resolution for modeling.

NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Merge Facets Tool

Merge selected contiguous faces into a single face.

NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Extrude Face Tool

Use this tool to extrude the face of a smooth mesh.

New/Improved 1stPricing Palette

Back by popular demand, the 1stPricing Palette has returned, so architectural symbols can be added to the TurboCAD drawing and then an online, real-time price quote can be obtained through the 1stPricing palette. This latest version now includes support for parametric windows, doors, and skylights.

Improved Standard Modify Tools

Most standard modify tools, such as Trim, Split, and Meet 2 Lines, will now work with walls.

New Geo-Location

Assign longitude and longitude to a point in your drawing – useful for surveyors and civil engineers for location of drawing elements.





New Compass Rose

New compass rose icon can now be placed in your design to displays north direction.

Modern Look

We’ve completely updated program icons and menu colors to a more contemporary look. But you’re not locked in. If you’re happy with the ways things are, we’ve included the option to return to our classic UI.



NEW ePack File Packaging

Use the new ePack file packaging feature to collect all associated files, fonts, and Xrefs into a common folder for easy distribution.

NEW Page Layout Wizard

New wizard makes for rapid creation of 2D layouts from an existing 3D model. Two modes are provided to facilitate optimum results for either Architectural or Mechanical models. Layout preferences can be saved for later use.

NEW Draw by Layer PLUS

This new setting allows users to apply general property changes to all tool presets. Once activated, when changes are made to the properties (Layer, Pen, and Brush) of a selected tool, those changes are applied to all tools.

NEW “Keep Center of Extents” selector mode option

New selector mode option scales around the center point of an object making changes symmetric.

NEW Drawing Compare

Instantly identify the difference between two CAD drawings, raster images, or PDF files from dozens of different applications. Now included with TurboCAD Pro, this utility lets you simply select two drawings and perform a visual comparison of the two. Compare differences in 3D files, as well as 2D, in a variety of ways. Select “Zoom to Differences” to quickly spot updates, or use the toggle feature to locate changes. Once you’ve identified them, there are options to switch from one image to the other, to show only the differences, or to have the differences blink, quickly highlighting where changes have been made. You can even create an animated .gif of the differences in the two files in order to share these with others.

New Drafting Object Options

Two new drafting object options are now available. The “Curve Segments Amount” is a memory saving option that defines the number of segments between adjacent control points and applies to all of the curves inside of the drafting object. New “Don’t Show Hidden Lines” option allows users to show/hide all hidden lines of Drafting Objects, for more predictable behavior as invisible Hidden Lines will not interact with SNAPs

Improved Drafting Palette Option

Use ACIS references to save memory when creating a drafting object.

Improved Join Polyline

Join polyline sow supports the ability to join arcs, bulge polylines and 3D polylines with fillets.



Upgraded LightWorks Rendering Engine

The powerful LightWorks® photorealistic and artistic rendering engine has been updated to version 8.3. Some of the enhancements include new styles and shader, as well as HTML documentation.

NEW Material Editor

New Material Editor has streamlined material location, selection, application, and editing. Its ease of use applies to luminance, environments, and render styles, since it’s completely integrated into one common universal editor for LightWorks®.

Upgraded Redsdk Rendering Engine

The Redsdk engine from Redway 3D, which takes advantage of GPU-based graphics cards for faster design navigation, has been upgraded to new version 3. Now rendering can be isolated to selected objects in a drawing, instead of all objects in Model Space, saving time. Specifically, if at the time of switching to the RedSDK Draft or Hidden Line render mode, there are selected items in the drawing, then the rendering will be applied only to those selected objects. Redsdk is also now the default draw mode instead of OpenGL.

NEW GPU-Accelerated Drawing Performance in Quality Render Mode

The updated Redsdk engine is now supported in Quality Render mode, as well as Wireframe, Hidden Line, and Draft Render modes. Speed drawing performance up to 60 times faster! Background rendering has also been implemented.

NEW Hatch Pattern Creator

Now included with TurboCAD Pro, this tool provides an easy and fast way of creating repeating patterns to be used as Brush Patterns in your designs. Create custom hatch patterns by symbol and by sample. Using the tool you can also select existing patterns, adding several together, accumulating patterns and creating more complex designs. As you create new patterns, save them to the Brush Style Table and they will be available for repeated use.




Updated filers offer a range of continued enhancements for working with the latest AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT 2010 / 2011 / 2012 files.
