New Redsdk v3 Rendering Engine

The RedSDK engine, which takes advantage of GPU-based graphics cards for faster design navigation, has been upgraded to new v3.
  • 10 times faster rendering speed when moving objects
  • New “Show object while dragging” in RedSDK Draft and Hidden Line mode
  • Smoother “Show object while dragging” in RedSDK Wireframe mode
  • Rapid Update after object rotation and move 
  • Faster Undo/Redo after object rotation and move 
  • Manipulate "heavy" bodies in real-time in all RedSDK modes (wireframe, hidden line, draft)


New 3D .PDF filter

Export 3D models to .PDF. The 3D object can then be interactively visualized by Acrobat Reader (since version 7).

Improved AutoCAD 2013 (DWG) filter

Updated file filter offers a range of continued enhancements for working with the latest AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT 2010 / 2011 / 2012 / 2013 files to maximize your workflow.

New/Improved Collada (DAE) filter

An entirely revamped Collada filter with greater export and import accuracy and performance. This interchange file format offers many uses, including the ability to drag and drop a COLLADA file on top of the virtual Earth in Google® Earth.


New Gear Contour Tool

TurboCAD Pro takes its new Stellated Polygon Tool one step further with the new Gear Contour Tool. This tool quickly creates gear shaped objects and aligns gear objects. Adjustment properties include:
  • Teeth number
  • Diameter pitch
  • Pressure Angle
  • Angle of rotation
  • Hole Diameter
  • Thickness (when working with ACIS 3D gear objects)

Updated ACIS 3D Modeling Engine

R23 update continues to advance performance and flexibility in TurboCAD 20.

New Selector Option for 3D Booleans

For added flexibility, use one of the new super selector modes (Rectangular, Window Polygon, Crossing Polygon or Fence) to easily select multiple objects for 3D Boolean operations (3D add, 3D Subtract, and 3D Slice).


New Protractor Tool

TurboCAD now allows you to place a virtual protractor on your drawing to more easily create construction lines in 2D and 3D. The Protractor Tool is able to work in many modes simultaneously with a powerful dynamic display.

New Stellated Polygon Tool

Create star-shaped polygon objects in two clicks! Just as quickly adjust properties including:
  • Teeth Number
  • Stellated as wave (for rounded stellated polygons)
  • Radius external
  • Radius internal
  • Radius fillet external (works when stellated as wave option is ON)
  • Radius fillet internal
  • Angle of rotation
  • Hole diameter
  • Thickness (when working with ACIS 3D stellated polygons)

Improved Associative Viewport Dimensions - Add dimensions to an object through a viewport in paperspace and the dimensions will update if the model changes.

New Drafting Object Reference Poin
t - Manually redefine the reference points of drafting objects so you can adapt to changes in the model.

New Dimension Function - Linear and angular dimension tools now allow users to specify a fixed length for line extensions and the value for that length.


New AutoCAD LT work-a-like mode

Now TurboCAD Pro users can easily switch between a tradition TurboCAD UI and the more modern TurboCAD LTE UI, which allows users familiar with AutoCAD LT to work in a similar environment including dynamic input and a command line.

New Print Window

Enter coordinate values, or use a new pointing device to specify opposite corners of an area you wish to print. It’s a simply way to quickly print just the part of a design you wan to print.

New Super Selector Modes

The drag mode selector has been greatly enhanced with 3 new drag modes, and one new menu item that encapsulates the old selector modes offering more precise control over object selection for faster, easier modification of your drawing.
  1. New Rectangle Selector Mode is a bidirectional selector. It replaces the drag modes previously know as “Window Rectangular Mode” and “Crossing Rectangular Mode”.
  2. New Window Polygon Selector Mode only selects objects which are completely inside a closed polygon. Objects outside or partially outside the polygon will not be selected.
  3. New Crossing Polygon Selector Mode allows you to select those objects which are crossing or completely within a closed polygon.
  4. New Fence Selector Mode selects only those objects which are touched by the open polygon or “fence” created while in this mode.

New Previous Selection Function

This function was added to the selector dragger allowing users to quickly jump back to the last selection with which there was a modification, and restore the selection.
