BONUS:  Introduction to TurboCAD®2018

This introductory training program is designed for users of TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 and is ideal for anyone who wishes to learn the key concepts of 2D drawing and 3D design from the ground up.    No experience necessary! This training program is supplied in a convenient, browser-based format which allows the user to follow each session sequentially or to use as a quick reference.

Usability Features

Complete Set of 2D/3D Drafting, Design, and Modeling Tools – TurboCAD® employs a large selection of line, arc, curve, spline tools, and other expected tools, so that no matter the situation you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. When used with TurboCAD® snaps, modification tools, and drawing aids you will be able to quickly draft and document your designs.
  • Drawing Tools
  • Editing/Modification Tools
  • Dimension Tools
Context-Sensitive Help
Right-click to instantly access recently used tools, recently entered values, and a quick way to change or reset reference points. If a TurboCAD® tool is active, the context menu provides a contextual toolbar as well, with additional similar tools and functions.
 
Flexible User Interface
Turn on and off only the tools you want to see as you work in a familiar, windows-like, customizable interface. Display TurboCAD’s comprehensive set of 2D/3D design tools with full explanations in the beginner mode. Switch to intermediate or expert mode to gain screen space as you become more familiar with the program.
Page Set Up Wizard
Breeze through questions designed to help you define your drawing’s size and orientation, units of measurement, printing scale and viewpoints.
Advanced Handle-Based Editing
Save time and draw more accurately, more quickly. TurboCAD® provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating, moving and aligning objects. Plus, the totally flexible design of the Conceptual Selector allows users to customize any visual and editing parameters available in the application (eg. Move, scale, or rotate).
Snaps & Geometric Alignment Aids
Draw lines quickly and let snap tools automatically align them with the closest center point, end point, or dozens of points you choose. Geometric alignment aids improve snap indicators.
Window or Crossing Selection
Users can select objects with a mouse by using the Window or Crossing methods similar to AutoCAD®2018. 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.
2D & 3D Text Editing
Create and edit text without leaving your drawing. Plus, choose from thousands of colours for text and background.
Floating and Shaped Viewports
Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. You can even render within a viewport.
 
3D Printer Optimised for 3D Printing
TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 both reads and writes STL files, and writes 3MF files, the standards in the 3D Printing world.
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.
Convert to Arcs Polyline
Convert a Bezier or Spline curve into a polyline composed entirely of circular arcs, or entirely of circular arcs and linear segments.
Stellated Polygon
Create star-shaped polygon objects in two clicks! Adjust properties for a variety of starred shapes.
Table Objects
Create a table on the fly, or import a table from DWG/DXF files.
Fill Schedule Wizard
Create and fill the schedule table with drawing information.


Architectural Features

House Wizard
This big, time-saving tool creates a preliminary room-by-room design of a home, complete with closets, doors, garage and even decks!
Intelligent Walls
Self-healing walls automatically join and intersect as you design in 2D or 3D. View wall dimensions with a single-click.
 
Automatic Wall Openings
“Slide” doors, windows, arches or any shape to create “openings” in walls with linked 2D and 3D views. Even set vertical alignment properties. 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 display in the Inspector Bar.
 
Parametric Doors & Windows
Window and Door dimensions can be scaled to meet your design needs. Further customize with materials and colours.
 
Hatch Patterns and Fills
Choose from over 70 hatch patterns (including colours) to visually identify various components of your drawing. Bitmaps, like your company logo, or gradient fills may also be used with transparency.
Fractional Dimensions
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. Great for creating legends, call outs, or simply mapping points and adding notes to your drawings.

Mechanical / 3D Modeling Features

2D & 3D Boolean operations
Use two existing objects and combined, subtracted, intersected, or sliced to create a new object. Select multiple entities for addition or subtraction.
Revolve
Move a 2D object around a revolution axis to create a 3D object.
Extrude
Pull complex 3D models from simple 2D shapes.
Sweeps
Extrude shapes along a path, perfect for drafting irregular objects.
Chain Polyline
Chain Polyline allows for faster design by allowing you to connect intersecting objects or portions of objects into a single polyline which can be then extruded, revolved or swept.
3D Slice
TurboCAD®2018 makes it easy to slice, or divide, one or more 3D objects into new objects, by specifying the slicing plane. The 3D slice tool offers the ability to slice by line, by plane, by workplane, by surface, and by facet.
Colour Transparency
Screen back the colour of an object in the foreground to display or emphasize hidden details in the background.
Slot Tools
Three new slot tools for inventors, woodworking and furniture design include slot, circular slot, and circular slot by center and radius.

Rendering


Photorealistic Rendering Engine
TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 uses the LightWorks rendering engine to create stunning presentations.  LightWorks integrates directly with TurboCAD’s Material Editor and includes Luminance and other lighting controls
 
Lights and Materials
A material editor, along with a complete library of materials, is included with TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 to define physically accurate materials, including reflective surfaces with ray tracing and radiosity. There is also support for lighting and luminance. LightWorks will substitute the materials and lighting of images previously rendered with RedSDK®
Design Director
Organise, access, and explore design alternatives easily in the Design Director Palette. Create layer templates, light templates, camera templates and powerful layers for use on different designs. Layer filters, that are .dwg compatible, help you manage large, complex drawings with ease. TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 layers are AutoCAD®2018 compatible, including a layers dialog based upon ‘Design Center’.
Floating and Shaped Viewports
Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. 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.
 
Colours, Brushes, Bitmap and Gradient Fills, and Transparency
TurboCAD® allows for hatch patterns and gradients to be layered with transparency. Custom bitmaps, such as your company logo, may be used as well. This empowers you to much more clearly and precisely communicate construction or assembly details.

Interoperability
