Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools
TurboCAD Pro v8 provides unlimited 2D design options. Choose from a number of 2D drafting tools including line, arc, curve, circle, ellipse, and spline tools. Access text, dimensioning tools, modifier and transformation tools for easy editing.
Powerful 2D/3D Architectural Design Tools
Create professional buildings and beautiful homes with the powerful architectural design tools, as well as thousands of symbols, materials, decals, and pre-drawn floorplans.
•1,000 customizable, pre-drawn floor plans
•2D/3D self-healing walls
•Parametric doors – single, single standard, or double
•Parametric windows – standard sill, overlapping sill, and tight sill
•Roof tool to create flat and hip roofs
•Slab tool for foundations
Surface and ACIS® Solid Modeling Tools
Quickly model complex 3D objects with advanced design and modification tools. Primitives, complex and advanced surface tools, as well as surface modifiers and transformation tools are included for surface modeling. Utilize the newly updated ACIS® R24 solid modeling engine to create realistic, complex 3D objects as well as data crucial for engineers.
A suite of assembly tools connect, mate, align, insert to speed 3D design while snaps and alignment aids ensure accuracy.
TurboCAD Pro v8 offers a fully editable, hierarchal part tree for Solids and Surfaces. Like a selective UNDO/REDO tool, users can adjust a middle step in the original design process, and each subsequent step will be applied correctly on the newly updated geometry.
TurboCAD Pro v8 helps you produce professional quality renderings for optimal presentation. Choose from nearly 2000 materials, over 3,700 decals, or apply any *.BMP or *.JPG images to your 3D models for more true-to-life renders. Add lighting, shadowing, reflectance, roughness and environmental effects, then render with the powerful LightWorks Photorealistic Rendering Engine.
Sketch rendering for stills and animations makes models look hand drawn. It is particularly appropriate in the early stages of conceptual design to avoid the feeling of completion. Sketch styles include cartoon, color wash, pencil, mosaic and more.
Printing, Publishing & PDF
Print by Layer when you have multiple sets of data within one file that needs printing, or use the Print Window option to simply drag the mouse over the area you wish to print. Use page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page. Save designs as single or multi-page PDFs for sending via email, or export to one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and more.
Superior File Compatibility
A large number of industry standard formats make collaboration easy including the latest AutoCAD 2013 DWG, 3DS, Adobe® EPS, Illustrator® and Photoshop®, DXF,PICT, PNG, ACIS, SAT, STL, TIFF and more.
