Advanced Training for Mechanical Design
The Mechanical Tutorial Bundle for TurboCAD Pro provides three complete training tutorials from TurboCAD expert Don Cheke of Textual Creations including the Finger Press tutorial, Workplanes tutorial, and Drawing Template tutorial. Each tutorial offers instructions to master the use of TurboCAD Pro while creating some amazing designs. These are downloadable tutorials, delivered on PDF, perfect for anyone looking to start their training immediately.
Finger Press Engine Tutorial
TurboCAD is very well suited for Mechanical Drafting with its myriad tools and functions that make the job so easy. With each new version that hits the market the professional user will readily notice how much effort has been put into developing and fine tuning this wonderful CAD package. TurboCAD Pro, now with a 64-Bit version, means that a user can tackle the most complex assemblies knowing full well that the program will deliver.
The Finger Press Engine tutorial was created especially for those with a bent toward mechanical drafting. It is a very comprehensive review that leads the reader through a full project that outputs fifteen pages of blueprints ready for the manufacturing floor. It includes instructions on creating the model in all its 3D glory, creating an exploded view, getting the model to paper space and even creating a bill of materials.

Demystifying TurboCAD Workplanes
One of the fundamental concepts in TurboCAD, when it comes to drawing in 3D, is the use and understanding of workplanes. Most new users are initially overwhelmed by this concept, but once the user puzzles out what workplanes are all about they quickly realize that they weren't that complex after all.
Each workplane tool, complete with a user-friendly explanation and example will be illustrated within this tutorial and this will be done by having the reader work through various examples keystroke by keystroke. By the time the reader reaches the end of this tutorial any confusion about workplanes should have lessened significantly.

Drawing Template Tutorial
One of the fundamental tenets of any CAD package is to never draw the same thing twice. This is very sound advice and a user would be wise to broaden this tenet to its fullest definition. This not only includes using blocks and symbols while drawing but it includes devising ways to approach the more mundane things such as repeating text and establishing tool properties or styles. One way to address much of this is to create a drawing template(s) where many properties have been pre-established and which includes at least one paper space page that has a reusable title block.
Within the tutorial the reader will be led through each keystroke to produce four ANSI size reusable TurboCAD templates with title blocks. These are based on the mechanical style the author uses in his daily work with one client within the manufacturing industry. The reader will find much discussion within the pages of this tutorial that will hopefully provide good insight into choices that are made.
