Innovative Architectural Tools
TurboCAD’s architectural tools let you design floorplans, decks, kitchens, bathrooms, room additions and more. Start in 2D and then easily convert your finished drawings into photorealistic 3D spaces. Plus, apply light effects and camera views to simulate video fly-through of your finished spaces
Intelligent Parametric Walls
Self-Healing 2D & 3D Walls – Walls automatically join and intersect, and update automatically
Single-Click Wall Dimensions – One-step incremental and overall dimensions
Wall Openings for Doors/Windows – “Slide” doors, windows, arches or any shape to create “openings” in walls with linked 2D and 3D views for correct representation in any view.
NEW Parametric Doors & Windows
Create parameter driven doors and windows in TurboCAD. Design multiple combinations by choosing the architectural style, material, and specific properties of each object including frame, hinges and knobs. Then simply drag and drop them as objects into the self healing walls of your 3D drawing. TurboCAD will even automatically generate the appropriate symbol for the 2D version of the drawing.
TurboCAD Deluxe offers 2 types of parametric doors and windows. For additional types and shapes and more architectural functionality, consider TurboCAD Pro 14 Architectural Edition
Automatic 3D Roofs
Add a 3D Roof just by selecting wall perimeters. Easily specify or edit the thickness, slope angle or overhang.
Display fractions in stacked, diagonal, or in-line layout to accommodate your personal preferences
Point Marker Tool
Automatically number objects such as rooms, doors or windows and is great for creating legends, call outs, or simply mapping points and adding notes to your drawings
Mechanical Design Features
Sophisticated Mechanical Tools
TurboCAD’s mechanical drafting tools let you design everything from engines and mechanical parts, to circuit boards, technical drawings and more. Create complex 3D shapes simply by extruding (pulling) them from your 2D shapes. Edit directly in 3D mode and apply colors , brush styles and lighting effects to create stunning visual presentations.
2D and 3D Boolean Operations
Create complete 3D objects easily with one-step 3D shape tools, or extrude, revolve, and more. Even the most complex designs are easy. Simply transform primitive objects into sophisticated 3D models with Boolean operations like add, intersect, subtract, and slice.
Create a 3D object by revolving a 2D object around a revolution axis.
Extrudes & Sweeps
Create complex 3D models by simply extruding (pulling) them from simple 2D shapes. Or use Sweeps to extrude complex shapes along a path that you define. Perfect for drafting irregular objects such as pipes that must be routed around other objects.
Automatic, Editable Meshes
Easily create complex meshes by entering coordinate information or importing matrix data from Excel®. Then view, edit and render the mesh directly into TurboCAD.
Snaps – New and Improved
Draw lines quickly and let snap tools automatically align them with the closest center point, end point, or dozens of points you choose. Plus new geometric alignment aids offer improved snap indicators and superior auxiliary line presentation for:
# Improved Tangent Snaps
# Improved Projection Snaps
# Improved Perpendicular Line Snaps
# Improved Parallel Line Snaps
# Improved Tangent from Arc Snaps
Floating and Shaped Viewports
Create multiple viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Then edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display. You can even render within a viewport.
Multiple Drawings/Multiple Paper Space
Build multiple drawings, each with multiple paper spaces, with independent settings (grid units, etc.); then use tabs to quickly switch between paper spaces.
Photorealistic 3D Rendering Brings Ideas to Life
LightWorks 7.5 Photorealistic Design Technology
Previously only available in software costing hundreds of dollars more, now TurboCAD Deluxe includes the LightWorks 7.5 photorealistic rendering engine. This valuable technology lets you match lighting with real-world backgrounds for stunning, photorealistic results. Its dynamic range compensates for extreme contrasts of lightness and darkness that are more like the human eye, so that your designs will show with maximum realism and clarity. Plus you can access hundreds of brand name and custom colors, effects and materials through LightWorks Archives, or create your own with our Materials Editor.
One of the options in the materials editor is transparency. This example shows a glass object where the transmission factor has been set to 90 percent to represent almost clear glass. The refraction is set to be larger than air causing realistic bending of the objects in the background. Total internal reflection is also visible.
Apply light properties to any object to create stunning renderings. Load, edit, and save Luminance settings on the Luminance Palette. Just click on the preview to apply it to an object! The luminance editor allows you to create your own luminances and includes a preview window, on the right, to show the effect of the different parameters.
Luminances extend the functionality of lights, they offer a full range of customizability, allowing you to create hyper-complex, super-realistic lighting effects.
Implement Atmospheric effects (Foreground, Background, Fog…) with ease. Load, save, edit and preview in the Environment Palette.
Import bitmaps, load pre-defined materials, edit existing materials and create your own materials. The preview function in the materials editor shows how the material will be mapped to different types of geometry. TurboCAD comes with a vast library of materials, organized in 10 different categories. Just click on a material and apply it to a 3D object.
Realistic Lighting Effects
Define light from numerous realistic sources including:
# ambient light that illuminates the whole scene
# point lights radiating uniformly in all directions
# directional lights to illuminate from specific directions
# spot lights with adjustable angles that will radiate a cone of light, and more.
Brush Style Editor
Use the Brush Style Editor for Bitmap Fills and put a photo or another graphic element inside your design. Choose the Gradient Fill option to fade from light to dark along radial, linear, diamond or custom paths from one part of your design to another.
