TurboCAD Expert is for experienced 2D/3D CAD users. Get hundreds of drawing tools, an optional AutoCAD-like 2D drafting interface with command line and dynamic input cursor, 3D modeling tools, photorealistic rendering, and extensive file support. Design, modify, present, and document in an integrated fashion.
Features
  • New! Ruby Scripting: New scripting language, compatible with Google SketchUp Ruby scripts, uses the Ruby Scripting Console for writing program scripts suitable for both mechanical and architectural design. (Deluxe, Pro, and Platinum)
  • New! AutoCAD® 2011 .DWG/.DXF Compatibility: Filter enhancements offer improved file sharing with AutoCAD 2010 and 2011. (All levels)
  • New! Support for Google SketchUp v8: Updates to TurboCAD’s .SKP filter allows users to now read/write Google SketchUp files up to version 8. (Deluxe, Pro, and Platinum)
  • New! GPU Accelerated Drawing Performance: TurboCAD’s Redsdk drawing engine, which takes advantage of GPU-based graphic cards, has now been implemented in Hidden Line and Draft Rendering mode, as well as Wireframe Mode to design up to 60 times faster in these popular modes. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! Multi-threading support: The new Lightworks® 8.3 rendering engine supports multi-threading, taking advantage of multi core processors so the turn around time on the lighting and rendering calculations are much faster. ACIS® operations that include two and more objects (i.e. Boolean operations, face to face lofting, extrude to face, imprint, etc.) also now support multi-threading, so these operations execute much faster. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! Window or Crossing Selection: Users can now select objects with a mouse by using the Window or Crossing methods similar to AutoCAD®. Drag the mouse from left to right to invoke Window mode and select only objects that are entirely within the blue window. Drag the mouse from right to left to invoke Crossing mode and select only objects that touch the green Crossing window. (All levels)
  • New! Lightworks 8.3 engine: TurboCAD’s powerful rending engine now provides progressive, ray-traced rendering, improving workflow by generating fast estimates of the image and an early preview of light settings. Lightworks® 8.3 also supports multi-threading, taking advantage of multi core processors so the turn around time calculations are much faster. Anti-aliasing for geometry & materials is also improved. (Deluxe, Pro, and Platinum)
  • New! Database Options allow users to extract attributes from Blocks and Xrefs.
  • New! Multi-Select Drawings command lets you open multiple drawings in one step.
  • New! PDF Underlay: Boost productivity with the new ability to import a vector PDF drawing and use it as a tracing layer with snaps. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! Purge tool: TurboCAD 18 makes it easier to remove unused objects from Model Space and Paper Space with this simple yet powerful new tool. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! Ray tool: Create rays on the construction line layer to more clearly define your construction geometry. Construction lines are also now editable, and can be edited into rays. (All levels)
  • New! Dynamic Dimensions for Doors and Windows: Now dimensions display as doors and windows are inserted, showing the distance to and from the wall ends for easier, more precise placement. Plus, corresponding offset fields have been added to the Inspector Bar. (Deluxe, Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! TurboCAD 18 now offer the ability to attach a block(s) to a selected door style or window style. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! House Wizard: This big, time-saving tool creates a preliminary room-by-room design of a home. (Deluxe, Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! ‘On Polyline’ Pattern tool: TurboCAD’s new pattern tool let you apply 3D patterns ‘On Polyline’ for a total of six tools to rapidly create parametric pattern from ACIS solids. Plus pattern associativity with the object it was set up has been improved as well as placement of objects along a curve on the surface will be normal to the surface. (Platinum only)
  • New! Graphic on Path Tool: This new tool located on the Modify/Assemble menu allows you to place graphics on any given path. It’s useful for laying out profiles for lofts, or arranging graphics including lines, splines, circles, arcs or ACIS edges for solids & surfaces. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! Multi-Add tool: Select multiple objects to do Boolean operations with this powerful new tool. (Platinum only)
  • New! 3D Fillet too: This new tool allows for filleting of 3D polylines. Objects can be used as compound path for sweeps, etc. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • New! Assembly by Axis Modes: Three new modes have been added to make Assembly By Axis much faster. These include (1) Ability to move bodies along an axis by definition of two faces and the distance between them; (2) Ability to rotate a body over the axis by definition of two faces to coincide with their normals; and (3) Rotation of bodies over the axis by definition two additional axes which must be coincidental. In addition, assembly tools now work with XRefs and insertions. Plus, Assembly by Facet was moved into Assembly By Tangents tool as a new mode. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • Improved Sweep tools: Sweeps now work with 3D curves and the new 3D Fillet tool. Users can also sweep along any object's Edge or along a Loop (a closure of edges on a 3D surface). (Pro and Platinum only)
  • Simple Extrude tool: TurboCAD 18 adds power to the simple extrude tool with the ability to use a Text object as a Compound Profile with this tool. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • Improved Bend/Unbend tools: These updated tools offers more accurate bending and unbending of objects. (Platinum only)
  • Improved Imprint tools: TurboCAD 18 now offers the ability to use a Text object as a Compound Profile with the Imprint tool. (Platinum only)
  • Roofs and walls are more intelligent: Tops of walls now automatically modify when changing a roof slope. You can also add different materials to various components (top, bottom, fascia, etc.) of a roof. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • Enhanced Layers: TurboCAD 18 layers are more AutoCAD compatible, including a new layers dialog based upon 'Design Center'. Users also now have the ability to turn on/off Layers per Viewport. (All levels)
  • Improved Drafting Palette: TurboCAD’s powerful drafting palette can now be locked when inactive to disable updates of drafting objects. This excludes unnecessary drafting recalculations on each step saving time redrawing the model. This palette also now distinguishes between 'Surface' and 'ACIS Body' drafting objects automatically, & a Section Line Depth setting was added. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • Improved Fillet (2D) tool: The updated 2D Fillet tool can re-fillet neighboring line segments, creating a new arc segment, tangent to those line segments. It works with polyline with arc segments too. (All levels)
  • Mirror tool can mirror a block & retain text orientation.
  • Measurement in TurboCAD now shows a measurement history (previous distance, area, etc.).
  • Text now uses the Enter key to wrap text to the next line. Users can also pick a position on screen to start a new line.
  • Stretch Tool updates offer greater control with improved Rubber-banding of objects and improved visualization for more precise control of stretched objects.
  • Trim Tool now works with multilines for enhanced productivity
  • Enhanced Software Development Kit: SDK samples and .NET support have been added. (Pro and Platinum only)
  • Enhanced 2D Constraints due to the updated D-Cubed v57 DCM engine integrated into TurboCAD.
