Dimensioning and Text are vital to any CAD Drawing. TurboCAD Designer includes:
Smart, Quick and Baseline which allow you to dimension automatically.
Associative Dimensions - freely move, rotate, or resize the associated objects and the dimension will retain its position relative to the objects, and the dimension text will change automatically to reflect changes.
Precise Dimensioning up to 10 decimal points.
Formats include: Architectural, Fractional, Engineering, Decimal, and Surveyor.
Multi-Text formatting and scaling options
Linear and angular dimension tools now allow users to specify a fixed length for line extensions and the value for that length.
Pick Point & Path Hatching, Bitmap 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.
Save time and draw more accurately, more quickly. TurboCAD provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating and moving objects.
Super Selector Modes
Drag modes offer precise control over object selection for faster, easier modification of your drawing. Also, a previous selection function allows users to quickly jump back to the last selection with which there was a modification, and restore the selection.
Rectangle Selector Mode is a bidirectional selector.
Window Polygon Selector Mode only selects objects inside a closed polygon.
Crossing Polygon Selector Mode selects objects crossing or within a closed polygon.
Fence Selector Mode selects objects touched by an open polygon.
The TurboCAD context menu (right-click) provides access to 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.
Save your drawing as PDF documents for easy sharing. Plus, export paper spaces, customize your fonts and define your paper widths and heights.
CAD and Graphics Compatible
Sharing your files with others and among other programs is easy. TurboCAD supports the most current and popular industry-standard file formats including the latest DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters for working with AutoCAD® 2015.

TurboCAD Designer is available in a 64-Bit Version addressing up to 32GB of memory, compared to 2GB on the 32-bit platform, so RAM-intensive processes are much quicker. Load, process, and render much larger CAD files. The 32-bit version is still available if it’s required by your hardware.
The TurboCAD Nudge function now offers more efficient pick-up and placement of selected object(s) using the numbers pad.
Improved Block/Group Editing
While in block/group edit mode, users can now snap to objects outside the block or group.

New Contact Manger & File Sharing
Users now have the ability to create and maintain contact lists and send files to individuals or groups from within TurboCAD.
Improved Dimension Text
Dimension Text can be set to Non-rotatable. With this property selected, dimension text will always face the user no matter the orientation of the drawing.
Sorted Layers in Drop Down Lists
The Layers in the drop down and simple lists are now sorted as per the Design Director. If you change the control view order in Design Director the same ordering will be in all other Layer controls.
Improved Trim Tools
New ability to trim hatched or closed objects and maintain the hatch or closure.
New Dimension Units Format ‘By Drawing’
Users can now globally define dimension units at the drawing level.
Improved Join Polylne Tool
The Join Polyline Tool now works on Beziers and splines without converting them to a polyline, so that their original curve status is maintained.
New Image Visual Effects Exported
For any image that has been added to a TurboCAD drawing, you can now control the brightness, contrast, saturation, and transparency.
Improved DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters
TurboCAD now uses the latest Teigha engine for the conversion of .dwg and .dxf files to/from different versions. Dynamic blocks are imported as simple blocks.
