TurboCAD LTE Pro is a full-featured 2.5D CAD software solution with advanced features and extensive file support. TurboCAD LTE offers everything you look for in AutoCAD LT, plus additional advanced features that CAD professionals want, all at a fraction of the price.
If you’re already familiar with AutoCAD LT, the keystrokes, command line, and interface in TurboCAD LTE Pro make it easy to jump right in. There’s no need to re-learn what you already know.
Load, process, and view even the largest CAD files using the 64-bit version of TurboCAD LTE Pro. Increase performance with the GPU-accelerated drawing engine used in conjunction with a variety of productivity tools.
Take designs further with TurboCAD LTE Pro’s powerful drafting palette, page layout wizard, PDF underlay, support for Xrefs, parametric parts manager, constraints, entity marks, and dozens more tools and features you won’t find in AutoCAD LT.
TurboCAD LTE Pro provides architectural features you will not find in AutoCAD LT, including a range of parametric, ACA/ADT compatible architectural objects, a house wizard, architectural style manager, and more.
TurboCAD LTE Pro is programmable through Ruby Scripting or the Software Development Kit, allowing for customizations of the software. Create routines, features, or vertical apps to make TurboCAD LTE better suited to your specific needs.
TurboCAD LTE Pro is rich in fundamental drawing tools and drawing aids that speed design. More than an AutoCAD LT® work-alike, it’s a professional 2.5D CAD program that provides all the features you look for in AutoCAD LT, plus many more advanced design tools CAD professionals want.
TurboCAD LTE Pro is designed to minimize switching costs for AutoCAD LT users. Menus, tools, and icons are easily recognizable. Familiar keystrokes, command line, palette interfaces and an intelligent cursor have been incorporated. TurboCAD LTE Pro also offers exceptional compatibility with the latest .DWG and .DXF file filters allowing you to continue to profit from your existing AutoCAD drawings.
In addition to providing users with a familiar UI, TurboCAD LTE Pro offers a variety of features like a 64-bit version, GPU-accelerated drawing engine, and more, to enhance your productivity.

TurboCAD LTE Pro goes beyond AutoCAD LT to provide more advanced drafting and detailing capabilities. The advanced drafting palette works with solid or surface models, turning 3D designs into associative 2D views and detailed sections to complete your working drawing documentation. The page layout wizard makes this process even easier with two modes to optimize the creation of 2D layouts from either an architectural or a mechanical model. TurboCAD LTE Pro even supports external references, or "Xrefs," making editing more efficient, and helping to keep drawings in synch.

TurboCAD LTE Pro v7 lets you export data to the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) format, the industry standard for BIM information. In addition to custom data, export geometry for walls, doors, windows, slabs, and roofs can be exported.
Parametric scripting in TurboCAD LTE Pro v7 has been extended so that the resultant objects can be used as doors and windows.
Customized text formatting for dimensions now includes bolding, superscript, subscript, italics, support for multiple font scales, and multi-line.
Edit dimension text from inside the dimension tool using the local menu, for added flexibility and improved productivity.
Specify Area Units discretely from Linear Units. For example, you can choose to measure area in feet and distance in inches. Metric system also supported.
A new option has been added to synchronize the rotation of viewports and views while retaining the possibility of discreet rotation.
You can now move a selected object simply by specifying distance and direction.
Quickly sketch out standard shapes (arc, line, box, etc.) and TurboCAD will automatically create the precision shape.
Four new arrow tools (Arrow Arc, Arrow Curve, Arrow Line, and Arrow Polyline) allow you to rapidly draw arrows. Specify the arrow tail and arrowhead or create your own.
TurboCAD LTE Pro v7 offers improved associative interactivity between Drafting Objects and Dimensions, with or without viewports.
The ACIS engine and interoperability filters have been updated to R24 enhancing several solid modeling features based on this engine.
A new algorithm has been written that gives more adequate results in some cases, and adds options to the ACIS faceter properties.
Now TurboCAD LTE users can control the facet resolution of the display for improved productivity. Low res displays more quickly while high res displays more slowly (speed depending on the image). This allows you to find a balance between quality and speed of display.
When a drafting object is too large to display fully, you can now use a break gap to abbreviate the displayed object. Adjust break line properties including type (straight, zig-zag, wave, or heartbeat), gap value, color, and extension length. One break line per drafting object is supported.
On objects with a large number of nodes, TurboCAD LTE Pro v7 allows you to select a subset of nodes to optimize performance and ease of use.
New option "On/off 'Workplane by 3D object'" has been added to the Edit Tool.
Universal Sun Light calculations are now based on one of three modes:
1. User geo-location, date, and time.
2. Longitude, latitude and custom GMT.
3. UAngle and azimuth.
Files filters have been updated to support import and export of the latest AutoCAD 2013/2014 file formats.
Update of both Read and Write filter based on the new SketchUp 2013 APIs.
TurboCAD LTE and TurboCAD LTE Pro are delivered in a 64-bit version to take full advantage of your hardware’s available computer memory to load, process, and render CAD files. A 32-bit version is also available if required by your hardware.
Microsoft Windows ® 8* 64-bit, Windows 7 (64-bit), Vista (64-bit) - 2 GB RAM.
Microsoft Windows ® 8*, Windows 7, Windows Vista**, Windows XP** - 1GB RAM.
*TurboCAD is designed for desktops or laptops that meet the indicated system requirements. Windows RT technology for use on tablets is not supported.
** 32-bit version of TurboCAD LTE and TurboCAD LTE Pro will run on XP and Vista platforms; however, these platforms are no longer being officially supported. - 1GB RAM.
Your experience with TurboCAD will be greatly enhanced with a newer generation, higher speed CPU, 4+ GB RAM, and larger display resolution and graphics support.
The optional GPU-accelerated Redsdk render mode requires a supported graphic processing unit (either a chip on the board, or on a video card). The latest video drivers are typically required. Newer boards with more power and VRAM generally provide greater performance.
